So this one is especially for Julie Matthews, I have owed her this for a while now! :)

Our move has been so amazing but has left very little time to blog unfortunately. We will be moving again soon and so the process is not quite over but for now, I will take whatever moment I can grab.

So, we have some grass fed, organic beef in the freezer from a local rancher and I just had a craving one day for BBQ beef. So I started searching the Internet for a recipe and this is one that I adapted from a few different places. I stuck this roast in the crock pot and man did my house smell good!!

Put your roast in the crock pot with about a 1/2 - 3/4 cup of water and turn on low for a few hours.

BBQ Sauce:

1/2 cup coconut oil
1 chopped chile pepper
1 medium onion grated
1 cup bourbon or whiskey (distilled alcohol is gluten free)
1/2 cup diced tomatoes, tomato paste or tomato sauce
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup molasses
2 - 3 tbs crystallized coconut sugar

Melt the oil. Add the grated onion and pepper, heat over medium heat 3 - 4 minutes or until the onions are clear. Take pan off heat and add the bourbon/whiskey, return to stove and turn up the heat medium/high. Boil for 5 minutes. Add the tomato paste/sauce, lemon juice, vinegar, molasses and sugar. Mix well. Return to simmer for a few minutes. Pour over meat in crock pot and let cook down another couple of hours. And be prepared to have your mouth water for those next few hours!! Enjoy!!
