I bought liquid smoke almost a year ago for a recipe and then couldn’t find the recipe. Me and my organization skills. This week however, I found another recipe calling for liquid smoke. And lo and behold, if it isn’t for my husband’s favorite meal. BBQ beef on buns!

I spotted the cutest little turkey in the freezer section at the grocery. Turns out, it’s just a turkey breast. Perfect idea for a small family dinner. I had no idea how to cook it so I bought chicken broth. Every other meat I’d ever cooked in the crock pot turned out tender if I cooked it in juice….so it was worth a try!

This time I changed the ingredients just a tad to see if it would taste better, worse, or the same– mostly by using grass-fed beef instead of buffalo.

I’d heard of this before, but it was one of those meals that sounded complicated and mysterious. I had no inkling of how to make it. What a surprise to find it only took a few minutes to throw this in the crock pot. (Mostly because I cheated and used pre-cubed meat.) The best part? I utilized a much cheaper cut of meat because it cooked all day. As I busied myself around the house, the smell wafted through each room.

We usually eat the chicken barbecue because chicken is better for you, blah, blah, blah. But  I ran across a few recipes for Barbecue Beef Sandwiches which got me to thinking. WELL. The chicken BBQ is really just a mock beef BBQ, isn’t it?

I decided to give it a try.

Maybe I was hungry, but when I finished my sandwich with sticky, BBQ fingers and juice splattered all over my plate I told Matt, “This might be the best thing I’ve ever eaten.”
He laughed, reaching for another one. It was a little sweeter—and messier than the chicken BBQ, but out of our three star system, we gave this one a four!

Southern cookin' at its best.

Remember in middle school when the lunch lady plopped a lump of “stuff” on your plate? Upon inspection, I could never decipher the ingredients… meat and maybe something else. To me, meat loaf conjured images of nasty school lunch. I never had any desire to try it.

Now that I’m grown, however, my taste buds are happier, healthier, more open-minded buds. And boy, was I wrong about meat loaf. My husband and I fought over the last piece.

Served with fresh corn on the cob!
