Pulled Beef and Broccoli Sandwiches

Pulled Beef and Broccoli Sandwich

I love cooking in new places! I went camping a few weeks ago and made these pulled beef sandwiches inspired by the flavors of Chinese beef and broccoli. It is also the subject of episode 2 of by new YouTube series Grilling@ which you can watch below!

First step was to make a fire.

The slaw was broccoli stems, cabbage, and broccoli tops.

I added a small amount of the beef cooking liquid to this, along with some lime juice.

After cooking for a few hours the meat is falling apart.

Put the beef on the bread to build the sandwiches.

Followed by the slaw.

These sandwiches are so good! Deep flavors you expect in Chinese takeout but in a handheld form! Cooking over an open fire is always a fun experience.
