For the BBQ Beef

  • Place Wertz’s home grown beef into a medium pan and heat until fat is melted and the mixture is boiling.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the vinegar, brown sugar, dry mustard, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, honey, salt, pepper, cayenne, crushed red pepper and garlic.
  • Stir into the shredded beef so that the meat is thoroughly coated.
  • Cover, and continue to cook beef on LOW for an additional 1-2 hours. Add the reserved broth only if necessary to maintain moisture.
  • Serve on mini buns, such as King’s Hawaiian rolls and top with coleslaw.

For the Slaw

  • Combine the coleslaw mix and onion in a large bowl.
  • Whisk together the salad dressing, vegetable oil, sugar, vinegar, salt, and poppy seeds in a medium bowl; blend thoroughly. Pour dressing mixture over coleslaw mix and toss to coat. Chill at least 2 hours before serving.
