BBQ Beef

Or pork, or venison, or lamb, or chicken…

 I usually start with a roast and cook it in the crock pot until it falls apart, and then I have all the great meat stock to use, bonus! I still simmer it a good deal more with the vegetables, sauce and spices so that everything melts together and becomes one pile of lip-smackin’ goodness.  Mmm, mmm, it’s BBQ season. I think this salad recipe could be the perfect accompaniment.

I still haven’t found a very good grain free bun substitute; the pancakes work fine, but can get soggy quickly and don’t have the nice chew to them that I really want.  Last time I actually served these up with some acorn squash and lacto-fermented pickles and it was a winner.  Squash isn’t really a summer time food though, so it felt weird.  But seriously, you can’t go wrong with this blend of flavors.

2 tablespoons butter
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon salt
2 pounds tender meat, shredded
2 cups tomato sauce
1 tablespoon ground cumin
2-4 tablespoons honey
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Heat butter in large sauce pan, cook onions and salt until completely translucent. Add meat, sauce, honey and cumin.  Simmer 30 minutes adding meat stock to the pan as needed to keep from scorching. Once onions have melted into the meat, add garlic and vinegar, cook for five minutes and remove from heat.  Serve hot or cold.


  1. I was recently turned on to your blog by a friend, Clarissa. Have you tried Udi's GF hamburger buns? I'm not sure how you feel about prepared foods, but after living GF for a few years, I am finding that the best GF yeast breads are made by Udi. I am also discovering how great coconut flour is to bake with, and even made a great fried coconut chicken with it recently.

  2. It's good to hear from you, Paulette! I have never tried Udi's but have heard of them. It has a lot of ingredients that are not GAPS legal.

  3. mmm.. that looks like a tasty treat you would see adam richman off Man vs Food tuck into!

  4. I agree, it does look beautifully tasty! And, being a great fan of apple cider vinegar for all sorts of health reasons I am pleased to see that is included in the recipe...thanks!

  5. This looks very tasty! I will make one this weekend. I will add lettuce and something to spice it up since I love spicy BBQ! :-D

  6. Wow !! its really so cute food, I like to eat BBQ in every holiday.

  7. Looks and probably tastes fantastic.
    With the pancakes why would you want to settle for a burger in a bun?

  8. It looks and sounds delectable. Can't wait till summer rolls around and I get the chance to try it!

  9. Really, I was searching something like that. Seems to be great. Can't wait. Thanks a lot.


It's rude to eat and run. Humor me with conversation please!
