Hey there– Been making these bar-b-que beef sandwiches for a very long time. I got the recipe from a friend the first year we were married– We lived in student housing in Texas while Larry was in grad school, surrounded by other newly weds all changing recipes and learning how to cook together. Saturday mornings a bunch of us would jump into the car together and head to the grocery store– talking through meal ideas on the way.
It’s a handy dish because it’s an easy way to feed a crowd of friends– and is so tasty. Add in some cole slaw, corn on the cob and you’ll feel like you’re having a real Texas down home dinner!!
BAR-B-QUE BEEF SANDWICHES
2 pounds of beef stew meat *
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 cup of your favorite bar-b-que sauce
(plus more to slosh on at the end)
1 tab. brown sugar
28 oz. can stewed tomatoes
1 tsp. salt
This is how easy it is– just drop all the ingredients into a heavy pot or dutch oven. Bring it to a low simmer on top of the stove for 2 to 2 1/2 hours, just until you can easily shred the meat with a couple forks. Don’t cook it too long (like I have done!) or it will turn to mush.
That’s it. Pile it on to toasted wheat-y buns and enjoy~
*I’ve used the same recipe using pork cubes of cut up chicken breasts. Just as yummy.
P.S.– I’m sad the picture I’m sending you is fuzzy– got a beautiful new camera for a Christmas gift and I’m still learning how to use it!!
