recipe barbecue beef

5 pound pork or beef roast
1 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 – 4 Tablespoons cooking oil
2 cups tomato ketchup
1 cup water
½ cup brown sugar
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
3 Tablespoons lemon juice
½ teaspoon thyme leaves
½ teaspoon hot-pepper sauce, or to taste

Cook roast until tender and shred apart with fork.  To make barbecue sauce, in a medium size sauce pan cook onion and garlic in oil over medium-high heat until onion is translucent.  Stir in remaining ingredients, bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered for 20 minutes to blend flavors.  Stir in shredded meat.  Simmer, covered, over low heat for 1 hour.  Serve hot on hamburger buns.  Makes enough to fill 18 hamburger size buns.

This recipe is one of my most requested recipes, it also tastes wonderful heated up the following day (if you have any left, that is)!
