Beef Barbecue

Serves 10

  • 2 pounds stew meat, cubed
  • 15 ounces tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 dash chili powder
  • ½ tsp salt, to taste
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup cider vinegar
  • 2 ⅔ tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 drops hot pepper sauce
  • 1 tsp smoke flavoring

Do not attempt this recipe in a crock pot, since no evaporation takes place there.

Combine all ingredients in a very large heavy pot. Simmer uncovered over low heat until beef falls to shreds, stirring occasionally. This will take 5 to 6 hours; watch carefully the last hour to make sure that it is not sticking. Mixture should be very thick. The mixture fills a large pot before cooking but becomes a small amount by the time it is cooked.
