Spicy Barbecued Beef Sandwiches

Total Time

Prep: 30 min. Cook: 4 hours


12 -14 servings

I work full-time outside of the home, so I look for economical meals like this that can be served for a couple of days. I like to serve these sandwiches with baked beans and coleslaw.


  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 beef sirloin tip roast (3 pounds)
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 2 fresh jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary or 1 to 2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke, optional
  • 12 to 14 hard rolls, split and toasted


  1. In a Dutch oven over medium heat, saute onion and garlic in oil until lightly browned. Add roast and brown on all sides. Add the next 10 ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 3-1/2 to 4 hours or until meat is tender. Remove meat; cool. Simmer sauce, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Shred meat; return to sauce and heat through. Serve about 1/2 cup on each roll.
Peppers (Hot)
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
