Since the Covid lockdown, I haven’t been able to go to IKEA® where they serve delicious veggie balls. So in the true self-assemble spirit that makes it so famous, I set out to make a clone. Mine are even better. The original has pea protein and kale, which I find expensive and gross, respectively. I made some changes to make it easier on the wallet and taste buds, then bake them. Some assembly required. Serve bowl-style with rice and your favorite sauce.
- 1 (6 pound) beef brisket, trimmed of fat
- 2 (16 ounce) jars dill pickle spears
- 1 (18 ounce) bottle barbeque sauce
Place brisket in the bottom of a slow cooker. Pour dill pickle spears and pickle juice over the beef; add barbeque sauce.
Cook on High until beef shreds easily with 2 forks, about 6 hours.
