Ingredients

Jerk BBQ Sauce:
Jerk Base:

Directions

Add the chopped bacon to a large saucepot and cook until very crisp and browned. Remove the bacon from pan. Add the chopped onion saute until very caramelized. Remove the onions from the pan and, in batches, brown the beef. Remove from the pan and use strainer to drain off as much of the fat as you can. Once drained, add all the cooked ingredients back to the pot and add enough of the jerk BBQ Sauce to almost cover. Simmer over low heat for 1 1/2 hours, you may need to add more BBQ to get it to the sloppy stage. Serve on your favorite rolls or bread with Cheddar or Swiss cheese.
