Wok's For Dinner: Shredded Beef Sandwiches

The original recipe for this meal comes from Taste of Home. This is a slow cooker meal that I find very versatile. The recipe calls for roast, but I used NY Strip steaks that I received in my December Angel Food Ministries order. I've made different versions of this meal before, and Ribeyes worked just as well. Any kind of beef, really, and it should cook up and shred up nicely. Here's how I made it:

Shredded Beef Sandwiches

2 cups homemade beef broth (you can use 1 can of condensed beef broth)
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
juice from 1 lemon
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
3 NY Strip steaks
1 tsp salt
sliced sandwich bread
cheese slices.

In a small bowl, whisk together the liquid ingredients and seasonings. Place steaks into slow cooker and top with sauce; stir until steaks are coated well. Cover and cook on high 4-5 hours. Shred meat with two forks (it should shred easily). Return meat to slow cooker and stir with sauce. Place some of the beef mixture and a slice of cheese between two slices of bread. Serve and enjoy.

If freezing: After slow cooking beef and sauce, allow to cool. Place in a quart-size freezer bag; squeeze the air out, seal, lay flat and freeze. Thaw 24 hours in refrigerator. Heat in microwave in a microwavable-safe bowl and serve.

I liked this recipe a lot. The sauce was nice and different than the usual bottle of barbecue sauce.
