I'm beginning to sound like a broken record, but this recipe comes from my "Taste of Home" magazine (Aug/Sept 96). While this may be a bit time consuming, it is without a doubt the best BBQ beef I have ever tasted. Also, it makes so much that you can either eat it for a whole week (lol) or freeze some for later.

This is a delicious beef barbecue. The Taste of Home recipe also calls for a tablespoon of liquid smoke; next time I will try that. Thanks for sharing!
