PUlled beef Pulled BBQ Beef (for sandwiches)Submitted by Kay A.

I’m not much into beef, but ever so often my hubby needs his beef and fries. I make these sandwiches from whatever beef roast I got on sale months ago and threw in the freezer. Sometimes the meat is very fatty, which is why I trim it after cooking and discard the broth.


  • 1 1/3 pounds frozen Angus Beef Roast
  • 1 cup water or leftover stock

BBQ sauce

  • 1/2 cup low sugar ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/4 teasoon McCormicks GrillMates BBQ Seasoning
  • 1/4 cup water

Makes about 2 1/3 cups. Approximately 150 calories per 1/3 cup serving.


Spray Instant Pot with nonstick spray. Put frozen roast and water/broth into pot. Put lid on, press the meat button and set to 70 minutes. Mix the BBQ sauce ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

When beeps finished, do a quick pressure release. Turn the pot off. Transfer meat to a cutting board and trim off all fat or skin that is visible on the meat and discard. With two large forks, pull the meat apart into chunks.

Pour off the beef broth from the Instant Pot and discard. Put the pulled beef back into the Instant Pot and pour the BBQ sauce over the top. Press the Saute button and mix the contents around. Continue pulling the meat apart with two forks  as the sauce sautés into the beef. This takes less than 2-3 minutes, so don’t walk away.

Here’s my version of a southern BBQ sandwich meal:

Put 1/3 cup of the pulled BBQ meat on a whole grain hamburger bun that has been smeared with Kraft light Olive Oil mayonnaise. Top it with homemade sweet mayonnaise-based coleslaw and then put on the top of the bun. Serve with honey baked beans or homemade oven baked French fries.
