From blog post: Pulled Braised Beef and Onions


September 28, 2010


canola or olive oil, for cooking

1 eye of round or top round beef roast

2 onions, halved and thinly sliced

1 1/2 cups beef stock

1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce

2 Tbsp. brown sugar

2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar

2 Tbsp. grainy mustard

a few cloves of garlic, crushed


1In a heavy skillet, heat a drizzle of oil over medium-high heat and brown the roast on all sides. Meanwhile, toss everything else together in a slow cooker or ovenproof casserole; top with the browned meat. Cover and cook on low (in the slow cooker) for 6-8 hours, or cover and bake at 275F-300F for 6ish hours. Using two forks, pull the meat apart in the sauce and serve on soft buns. Serves about 10 (depending on the size of your roast).
