  • 3

    Remove roast from the grill and place in a large pot. Reduce the grill temperature to 325℉.

  • 4

    Add beef stock (the liquid should cover about 3/4 the height of the roast) and add carrot, celery, onion and spices. Stir to distribute evenly making sure there are no vegetables on top of the roast.

    For the Gravy: Strain the liquid and place back in the pot. Bring the liquid to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Thicken the liquid with cornstarch to desired consistency.

    • As Needed cornstarch

  • 8

    Pour a bit of the gravy over the reserved shredded meat and reserve the rest to dip.

    Make sure leeks are washed well. The easiest way to do this is to slice the leeks, submerge them in a bucket of water and stir vigorously to remove the dirt. Lift the leeks out of the water into a strainer and shake off excess and dry.

    • 1/2 Cup thinly sliced leeks

  • 10

    For the Leek Marmalade: Melt the butter in a medium sauce pan over medium high heat. Add leeks and reduce heat to medium. Cook the leeks stirring occasionally until completely softened and falling apart. Add the mustard seeds, vinegar and brown sugar and stir to combine. Simmer for 20-30 minutes until the liquid reduces and thickens. Season to taste with salt. Remove from heat and let cool.

    • 1/4 Cup butter

    • 1 Tablespoon mustard seeds

    • 1/4 Cup sherry vinegar

    • 1/4 Cup brown sugar

    Place sandwich halves back on the grill (set at 325℉) long enough to melt the cheese, about 5 minutes.

    325 ˚F / 163 ˚C

  • 15

    Remove from grill and serve open faced or with two halves together to make a sandwich. Serve with extra gravy to dip. Enjoy!
