    Lazarus's Note:

    This is my mother's recipe, and a favorite of everyone who's ever tasted it. It takes a long time to cook, but very little prep. Start it in the morning, and you'll have a delicious meal waiting for you in the evening. Don't worry about using an expensive roast. The cheap tough ones turn out beautifully.

      I've been wanting to make this since Spring PAC and finally got around to do it. Am I glad I did, this must be one of the best ways I've ever had beef! To be sure to have a gluten free bbq sauce, I made my own throwing together ketchup, molasses, beef broth, mustard, onion and garlic powder and smoked paprika. DH took one bite and said "give this five stars!" - usually he says 4 stars because 5 are for really very special unique and outstanding recipes, so, there you are! We had this on fried polenta slices instead of buns, and I barely could stop eating. This will be a keeper for sure. Thanks for sharing :)

      I was worried about the size of this dish. Having a ton of leftovers. 3 men and 3 women, and the bowl was literally wiped clean by my brother with a bun. It was soooo good. Tasted JUST like the ones I crave from the Stampede every year! Thank you so much for this post! Incredible.

      This was excellent. I started with a roast that had not been frozen and had been marinated. Used garlic barbecue sauce (that's what I had on hand) and added a Spanish onion. Received many compliments. Since I was cooking 3 large roasts, I did add extra beef broth.
