Beer-Braised Shredded Beef Sandwiches
3 lb. Chuck Roast
2 tsp. chili powder
½ tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. paprika
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. kosher salt
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 cups beer
15 oz. crushed tomatoes
1 ½ cups water
¼ cup molasses
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
6 potato buns
Trim the Chuck Roast of any fat and cut into 2-3 inch chunks.
Combine chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne, pepper and salt. Stir and sprinkle over the beef chunks, tossing to coat well.
Place a heavy based pot or dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add 1 Tbsp. of the oil and place beef in the pot to brown. You may need to do this in two batches to avoid overcrowding. Remove beef from pot.
Add remaining oil to pot, turn heat to medium. Add onions and garlic to sauté, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5
Add the beer to the mix, and use a spoon to dislodge all the crusty brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Add back the beef, plus crushed tomatoes and water. Turn heat to medium-low so there is an active simmer. Cover and cook for 3 hours, stirring occasionally.
Remove lid and allow to simmer a further 30 minutes, so sauce thickens. If your beef is not yet tender, keep cooking until it’s
shreddable. You can add more hot water if you feel your sauce is getting too thick.
Use tongs to remove beef pieces from sauce and shred using two forks.
Add the molasses, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar to the sauce and cook 5 minutes.
Return shredded beef to the pot and stir into the sauce. Add additional salt if desired. Serve on potato buns.
