Cut the beef into 3 or 4 pieces. In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, cook the beef 1-2 minutes on each side to brown. Stir frequently.


Add carrots, onions and beef to the slow cooker. Deglaze the skillet with 1/4 cup water and add to the slow cooker.


Add the sauce ingredients.
The tomato sauce can be substituted with chili sauce or 3 puree tomatoes. If using Ketchup, reduce the brown sugar to 2 Tbs.


Cover and cook on low for 11 hours, or high for 5 hours. The beef will be very tender. Using a fork, the meat should fall off the bone and easily shred. Remove the bones and stir to better mix in the sauce.


Serve over rice, or in a pita with sliced cucumber or pickle. Tastes delicious served beside Green Apple Salad. and a cold glass cider.
