Braised BBQ Beef

This was an easy, albiet time-consuming, recipe for barbecued beef that ended up tasting suspiciously like sloppy joes. I swear, if you replaced the chuck roast with hamburger …

Anyway. It was good.

And messy. Really messy.

But soooooo worth it.

  1. In a large pot, add two medium onions, rough-chopped, to a tbsp of olive oil over medium heat. Cook about 5 minutes.
  2. Add a 28-ounce can of peeled plum tomatoes, chopping them up in the pot.
  3. Add an 18-ounce bottle of barbecue sauce (or 2 1/4 cups of homemade sauce). I use Sweet Baby Ray’s Original BBQ Sauce.
  4. Let everything simmer together for about ten minutes.
  5. Add a 2 1/2 to 3 lb chuck roast.
  6. Cover and simmer for about 3 hours, stirring occasionally.
  7. Remove the roast and cut into small pieces. You could also shred it if you prefer.
  8. Increase the heat under the sauce and let it thicken. BE SURE TO KEEP STIRRING THE SAUCE! You do not want burnt sauce bits in your barbecue!
  9. Add the beef back in, mix well, and serve on buns.
  10. Enjoy!
