The fact is that my mom was never a great cook. Growing up we ate a lot of takeout food and a lot of things that came from a box. As a kid you don’t really care about such things, takeout food and things from a box are some of the best kids meals!
But one meal I do remember fondly is my mom’s barbecue and on a recent cold fall New Hampshire day, I called my mom to get her recipe. Like I am want to do, I often take a recipe and change it and that is what I did with the following recipe, that I still am going to dedicate in name to my mom.
- 3 lbs. ground beef
- 2 cups ketchup
- 2 cloves garlic (minced)
- 3 Tb. lemon juice
- 4 Tb. Worcestershire Sauce
- 4 Tb. horseradish mustard
- 1 tsp. ground black pepper
- 2 tsp. of dried chipotle seasoning
- 4 Tb. brown sugar
- 1 package potato rolls
- Brown the ground beef in a large frying pan.
- While the beef is browning, mix all of the other ingredients in large crockpot.
- Once the beef is browned, pour off all of the grease.
- Mix the ground beef in with the sauce mixture in the crockpot.
- Let it cook on medium for at least 4 hours.
- Serve with the potato rolls as sandwiches or open faced with a knife and fork.
