Homestyle Alberta Beef on a Bun

READY IN: 8hrs 15mins
Recipe by Lazarus

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.

Cut this down for DH and I and used a honey/garlic bbq sauce and add sliced onions and some garlic to the recipe and we really enjoyed this. I am glad I cut this down (makes a lot) but very tasty. Made for Spring PAC 2014.
