Sloppy Joes

Recipe by mianbao

This is a recipe of my mother's that we always wanted for parties. It is shredded meat in sauce. Actually, we know it by the name Beef Barbecue, but I think barbecue means different things depending on where you're from.

This was very flavorable and very easy ! I let my crockpot do the cooking while I was at work! The meat just melted in your mouth!I just love these quick & easy meals and I needed a change from the Beef Steaks !I also perfured the beef chuck instead of the ground beef ~ But I would use the ground beef if I had to do this in a hurry ! Thanks for this one !!
