READY IN: 1hr 40mins




  • In a medium plastic bag, combine flour, garlic powder and onion powder.
  • Add beef and shake bag until beef is evenly coated.
  • Refrigerate beef for at least 15 minutes.
  • Preheat a medium, non stick sauce pan over medium-high heat.
  • When it's hot, lightly mist pan with spray, then add beef.
  • Brown beef on all sides about 1 minute per side, then reduce heat to medium. Add broth and liquid smoke.
  • When liquid comes to a boil, reduce heat to low (liquid should still be boiling slightly).
  • Cover and cook beef, stirring occasionally, for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until it's very tender. (The pieces should easily fall apart when smashed wit a fork).
  • Using a slotted spoon, drain any excess liquid from beef and discard.
  • Using a fork, separate pieces so beef is somewhat shredded., then mix in barbecue sauce.
  • During the last 5 minutes of cooking the beef, lightly mist a small, nonstick frying pan with spray and place it over medium heat.
  • Add onion strips and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, place bun halves, inside down, in a medium, nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Cook until just toasted, about 2-4 minutes.
  • Place each bun bottom on a plate.
  • Pile 1/4 of beef mixtures onto each bun.
  • Top with 1/4 of onion strips.
  • Add bun tops and serve immediately.
