Cooking Thursday

I've shared with you before some of the ways I like to make leftovers into a new meal.  When I make a roast, I buy one that is big enough for leftovers. This is one of my favorite recipes to use that leftover roast in.  I've been making this one since I was married, 36 years ago - so you know it's good!

BBQ Beef
2 cups shredded, cooked beef

1 cup ketchup

1/2 cup vinegar

4 tablespoons chopped onion
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

4 teaspoons packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon mustard
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Heat all ingredients, except beef to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir roast into sauce and serve on buns.

Oh, girl! I'm so glad you posted this. Used to do that, and now gonna do it again, thanks to you. I seldom buy roasts anymore since it's just my daughter and I BUT since the kids are coming over more often, I will. Buying stew meat costs a lot more when you look at how much can be made with a roast.

Thank you for prayers. I know she's going to be okay. I pray anyway. Hey, I think that's a song!

This is a great idea for using leftovers. Thx for the recipe. Any luck filling the vacancies at work?

The ingredients you add to your beef are very much like the ingredients for hamburger bbq in the Mennonite Community Cookbook. Except for the ratio of vinegar and brown sugar, which are equal amounts. I have used that sauce recipe for so many different things - oven bbq chicken, pork chops, sloppy joes of course. In fact, when I was typing up recipes for my kids when they moved out, I called it Mom's Mennonite BBQ Sauce, hahahaha!

That sounds delicious. I've tried making barbecue beef and pork in the crockpot but never loved the results. I could cook the meat a different way and try this with the leftovers instead. Thanks for sharing!

...and so yummy for the tummy!!
My mouth drools. Seriously. I think it's time for lunch. It's gotta be noon somewhere. Oh ya, it IS HERE. But I have no leftover roast right now...I will definitely have some sooner than later tho.
