  1. I used boneless, lean beef brisket (on sale) upped the garlic a notch, added salt & pepper. Instead of serving it on a bun etc I served it over Myrtle Tree Rotini and with a fresh salad - super meal, great taste Thanks Laurie
  2. This is great! We had it on Kaiser rolls and the whole family loved it. I did not add the relish to all of it, because the kids don't care for it. My husband and I added it to a small amount separately and we liked the zing it gave the meat. I never thought to make this with beef cubes, I always used a chuck roast and had to shred until my arm fell off! My store sells chuck roast and beef cubes for the same price per pound, so this was a time and money saver for me! I have a 6.5 qt. crock pot and it took 5 hours on low. I mashed the cubes and then left the lid off for about an hour, stirring frequently, to thicken up the sauce. This was really excellent, thanks for sharing! P.S. I added a tbl. of Worchestershire sauce and salt and pepper.
  3. I opted out on using the ketchup- I couldn't find a low carb one to substitute. I forgot to add the relish- so this basically is what i've always made for bbq beef sandwiches. I usually just do the meat and the sauce- no veggies. This time I followed this recipes adding veggies and garlic- I didn't notice a difference- so it's a great recipe, I liked it, just not really different from what I usually do anyways
  4. Was looking for a slow cooker bbq beef recipe to try with chuck roast and I picked the right one. Took leftovers to work and a hit there to. Had it on both hamburger buns and hoagie buns. Made it a second time with pork shoulder and that was great to


<p>Before I get to the details let me tell you how I rate recipes.....and tell you how I feel about others ratings! <br /> <br />5 STARS....This recipe was excellant, we liked it very much, the directions were very clear and if I made any minor substitutions I noted it. It would most likely be made again, many times! <br /> <br />4 STARS....This recipe was good, we liked it but I made changes either in taste or it was not clear in something, but I would consider making it again. <br /> <br />3 STARS....This recipe was not something that got approval from the majority. Either it just didnt work in preparation, directions, or taste. I will tell you why and would not make it again unless I altered it much! <br /> <br />2, 1 STARS.....I DO NOT give these as I feel they are NOT worthy....especially if the recipe previously had good reviews and by my giving a low one would jeopardize the ratings. I would appreciate this reciprocated with reviews to my recipes. <br /> <br />0 STARS....COMMENTS I will leave no stars and comments on something that did not work out for me and I will be honest and tell you why. <br /> <br />I DETEST IT WHEN PEOPLE CHANGE YOUR RECIPE OR DONT EVEN MAKE IT THEN LEAVE YOU LOW REVIEWS. PEOPLE WHO DO THAT ARE JUST BEING VINDICTIVE OR JUST PLAIN STUPIDLY CRUEL. Examples of some I've gotten would be: 1 star...This doesnt sound like something we would like 2 stars...too sweet for me, (this was on a all 5 star recipe). <br /> <br /> <br />Now for the details: <br />I was born, raised and still live in the same midwestern town where comfort food is what we thrive on, however my dream is to retire to the northwoods of Wisconsin.. (the sooner the better IMHO)! <br /> <br />I relish a recipe that is simple, quick and tastes great as I am a divorced mom to 4 very busy, active young adults (27, 25, 20 year old daughters and a 21 year old son.) Cooking time is at a premium as everyone is so busy, I never usually know who will be at my house for supper! I also try to find things that will reheat well. <br /> <br />I have worked for 30 years in the accounting field and presently semi retired. It is very nice for a change to not have to deal with the everyday stress of deadlines and office politics! It has been great cooking for pleasure, at my leisure, instead of to feed the troops! <br /> <br />Cooking relaxes me so I do it often and I love to cook for people who appreciate it. It is nothing for me to start a recipe at 10pm right before bedtime, and yes I have cooked all nite. Kind of a marathon!! <br /> <br />Cookbooks are my passion and I can't resist the ones that churches, schools etc. put together and well as the ones in the grocery stores. My collection numbers well over 2000 and where as some people go to bed with a good novel, my nightstand is full of cookbooks! <br /> <br />I love to bake and its nothing for me to make 15-20 different kinds of cookies and candies for the holidays. I guess that it has rubbed off on my oldest daughter who is a culinary school graduate and knee deep in pastry classes, hoping to become a pastry chef! <br /> <br />In March of 2002 I had gastric bypass, weight loss surgery and I have lost 125 pounds FOREVER, so now when I do cook it IS for everyone else to enjoy. <br /> <br />I love Zaar and all the friends I have made here, this sight is so addictive but yet so much fun! And the recipes aren't bad either..LOL! I know that in the years since Ive been a permanent fixture of this site I have acquired many great recipes and tons of cooks that I am proud to call my friends! I have also tried many foods that years ago I would never have even imagined.</p>
