After Chef Aaron McCargo Jr.'s breakfast demonstration at Blogalicious11, I was able to interview him about his favorite recipe in his new cookbook. He had this to say...
Special thanks to Krystal Grant for her camera work!
Although I didn't make the short ribs first, the barbecue beef (made the same way) fell right in place on Tuesday! It was one of those days. I planned a sandwich night knowing our schedule would be hectic. After work, both Mr. Husband and I had to play taxi to our three youngest daughters. Since I'm still working on that clone thing, dinner had to be easy breezy, and literally cook itself.
Chef McCargo's Barbecue Beef recipe is ideal for the crock pot. The title of the book, Simply Done Well Done, is dead on!
Instead of searing, and simmering as the recipe dictated, I mixed all the ingredients together, added the beef, and let the crock pot do the rest. When we returned home, I whipped up the pickle slaw, added chips and dinner was served.
Before making Chef McCargo's barbecue beef, I always added my favorite barbecue sauce, after the meat was done. The combination of the ketchup, vinegar, broth, along with other simple ingredients makes the barbecue sauce, while cooking. I didn't miss my bottled sauce at all.
This is a great meal for entertaining friends. They'd be so impressed with your skills. Shhh, you don't have to tell them how simple it was.
