My family loved these sandwiches. We barely had any meat leftover. I'm not a fan of hamburger barbecue, so I only had a taste and I loved the tanginess. The sauce had great flavor for being so simple to make. I used 96% lean beef and just added a little garlic. Thanx for sharing this quick, easy recipe!

A very nice barbecue beef! Easy too. Made as posted. A snack size of tomato juice is 3/4 cup. Thank you Chef Skie for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
