Sweet & Savory Slow-Cooked Beef Recipe

There’s plenty of sweet and a little heat from the chipotle pepper in this family-friendly shredded beef. Add your favorite barbecue sauce or stir things up each time you make it by varying the flavor to see which way you like it best. —David Kleiman, New Bedford, Massachusetts
