How to make it

  • Heat butter & oil in dutch oven over medium high heat. Liberally rub roast all over with salt & pepper. Brown beef on all sides.
  • Pour applejack into pan and flame it with a long fireplace-type lighter. IT WILL FLAME HIGH SO KEEP AS FAR BACK AS POSSIBLE AND BE SURE YOUR HAIR IS OUT OF THE WAY!!
  • Once the flame dies down, pour in the stock and the wine. Cover pan and simmer slowly over low heat for about 4 hours.
  • Remove from heat, cool to room temperature and with two forks, shred beef into small pieces, following the grain of the meat. It should fall apart.
  • Return beef to the liquid in the pan and heat.
  • Serve on good crusty rolls with the simmered onions that go with this. They are PERFECT with the beef!
  • This freezes beautifully...and the onions, too. Good to make ahead for parties.
