BBQ Pulled-Beef Sandwiches

Slow roasted beef is shredded and mixed with Spur's BBQ Sauce, loaded into rolls and topped with tomato and coriander. A serious sandwich to impress. Serves 6.


BBQ Pulled Beef:

  • 1.2 kg beef roast (topside)
  • 60 ml (¼ cup) cooking oil
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) Spur Steakhouse Spice
  • 750 ml (3 cups) water
  • 1 medium onion, chopped coarsely
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 200 ml (¾ cup) Spur BBQ Sauce
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) honey


  • 2 french loaves
  • butter or margarine, for spreading
  • 3 medium tomatoes, sliced or coarsely chopped
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • fresh coriander or parsley, for serving
  • Spur Salad & French Fry Dressing


Cut beef roast into four pieces. Heat half the oil in a heavy-based pot and brown meat on all sides. Season with Spur Steakhouse Spice.

Add half the water, cover and simmer for about 2 hours. Check water level during cooking and add remaining water if required. Continue for 30 minutes to 1 hour until tender.

Remove beef from pot and shred into long strands using two forks. (Do not make the strands too thin – a chunky texture is best.)

Heat remaining oil in the same pot. Sauté onion and garlic until soft. Add shredded beef, Spur BBQ Sauce and honey and heat through.

Sandwich: Cut loaves lengthways and spread with butter. Place shredded beef on bases and top with tomato, red onion and coriander. Drizzle with Spur Salad & French Fry or Sweet Chilli Dressing if preferred.


Cut the loaf in 2 to 4 sections for individual servings.

Add 3 ml (½ tsp) ground cumin for an enhanced flavour.

Add Spur Peri-Peri Sauce for a spicy kick.

Beef can be replaced with pork.
