Contest Winning Barbecued Beef Sandwiches

The great thing about this recipe—especially for non-cabbage lovers!—is that you can't taste the cabbage in the meat. Yet, at the same time, it adds a nice heartiness and moistness to it. I credit my mother for my love for cooking. My grandmother, too...I remember how she made barbecued beef on weekends when grandkids visited. Home for my husband, our daughter (she's 12) and me is a small village on the banks of the Mississippi River.
