JoAnn Merrill's excellent recipe for beef barbecue. Plan ahead -- it takes some time to make. I've served this at parties to rave reviews and no leftovers. If there are leftovers, they can be frozen and reheated at 50% power until hot. This recipe cannot be made in a crockpot since there is no evaporation of liquids in a crockpot.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Combine all in a VERY large heavy pot. Simmer uncovered over low heat until beef falls to shreds, stirring occasionally. This will take 5 to 6 hours, watch carefully the last hour that it is not sticking. Mixture should be very thick. The mixture fills a large pot before cooking but becomes a small amount by the time it is cooked.
  2. While cooking, chopped green peppers, celery carrots and a bay leaf may be added.
  3. Serve on hamburger buns.
