Once family and friends have dug into this tender and tangy barbecued beef, you'll be making it again and again. It takes a little time to prepare, but it's well worth the effort for a picnic or dinner anytime. -Jesse & Anne Foust, Bluefield, West Virginia

"My brother who lives a couple hours away was driving up to visit this weekend. Made this with pepper poppers http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/pepper-poppers and threw them in the last half hour of cooking and it was the best friday dinner. I served it with a salad but next time I'm whipping up a batch of cilantro cole slaw so people can layer it on the sandwiches if they wish. A definite keeper!"

"Been making this since it was first printed in 1996 and it was the first thing I cooked for my husband when we were dating. He requested it be the meal I make for his family when we joined them for a beach week. Still on rotation at our house."
