    1      teaspoon      black pepper -- fresh ground
    1      cup           catsup
      1/2  cup           cider vinegar
      1/3  cup           Worcestershire sauce

 * DO NOT attempt this recipe in a crockpot, since no evaporation takes  
 place there.
      Combine all ingredients in a VERY large heavy pot. Simmer uncovered  
 over low heat until beef falls to shreds, stirring occasionally. This will 
  take 5 to 6 hours; watch carefully the last hour to make sure that it is  
 not sticking. Mixture should be very thick. The mixture fills a large pot  
 before cooking but becomes a small amount by the time it is cooked.
 While cooking I sometimes add chopped green peppers, celery, bay leaf, or  
 carrots.
 Serve on hamburger buns with mustard.

 NOTES : This is a recipe I developed by trial and error and is now one of  
               our all time favorites.        Freeze in serving portions 
        for the kids to have a quick and         delicious sandwich. Thaw 
        the small serving size in the microwave         on 50 percent 
        power.
