BBQ Beef

Shredded BBQ beef sandwich with onions and BBQ sauce on wooden cutting board and tangerines in background

This is a simple way to make barbecue beef without standing over a hot grill for hours. Braising the beef gives it tenderness and flavor, and the homemade sauce adds some tang.

4 pounds Panorama Organic 100% Grass-Fed boneless chuck roast
1 onion, quartered
2 bay leaves
4 garlic cloves, minced

Place chuck roast in a Dutch oven. Add onion, bay leaves and garlic. Add enough water to cover chuck roast. Cover and simmer over medium heat 3 hours or until meat is tender. Reserve one cup of meat liquid. When meat has cooled enough to handle, shred it.

1/2 c chopped onion
2 tbs sugar
½ tsp
½ tsp dry mustard
1C ketchup
2 tbsp white vinegar
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 c reserved liquid from meat

Sauce Instructions:
In a medium sauce pan, sauté onion in butter until soft and translucent. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the shredded beef to the sauce. Serve on large hamburger buns.
