Snappy Barbecue Beef Sandwiches

Snappy Barbecue Beef Sandwiches

Ready in 45 minutes

My husband and I do a lot of one-pot cooking (he taught me to cook after we were married!). The beef in these sandwiches is like an oven stew, but we'll often prepare it in a slow cooker - putting it on in the morning so we can just dish it up when we get home from work. Jerry is a rural mail carrier, and I am a nurse (this recipe came from one of the cookbooks that our hospital employees regularly compile). Patricia Throlson, Willmar, Minnesota

"I love this easy recipie! I use the crock pot (not sure if that's the same as a dutch oven) and it turns out great! I was concerned about the amout of celery the first time I made this - I thought it sounded like a lot but it turns out tender and juicy. We always have leftovers so I chop the beef and put it in individual sandwich bags in the freezer. Grab a hamburger bun and it makes a delicious quick lunch in the microwave later."

I really enjoyed this there is just one problem I can no longer eat beef because of a medical condition, so I substituted pulled pork for b.b.q. beef it still tastes great according to the people I tried both on. Rev. Ken James Gertner

Loved the flavor. I think it is a little too dry so added BBQ sauce to my sandwich. Great on the grill using the sauce for basting.

This oven barbecue beef recipe with it's homemade barbecue sauce was really easy and unexpectedly good. I was a little concerned about the amount of celery called for in the recipe, but the resulting sauce was very good...both tangy and flavorful. As for modifications; I browned the beef in the Dutch oven medium-high heat prior to adding the sauce ingredients and a good pinch of red chili pepper flakes. After cooking, I strained the sauce and skimmed off the excess fat before returning the shredded beef and letting it sit, covered, for about 15 minutes to absorb some of the sauce. We served this with both a creamy coleslaw and potato salad, spicy baked beans, iced sweet tea and a warm blackberry cobbler topped with homemade vanilla ice cream.
