Mile High Shredded Beef

Mile High Shredded Beef

"This tender beef has become a tasty tradition when I cook for our harvest crews and for neighboring ranchers who come to help us sort our cattle. Those hungry folks have been a good testing ground for recipes. They let me know if a new one I try is a 'keeper'. -Betty Sitzman, Wray, Colorado"

Delicious! A nice, light, sweet barbeque sauce. The only thing I might do different next time is work a little harder to get the fat out of it.
