Instructions

For the beef, brown beef in oil, in two batches, in a skillet over medium-high heat, 15 minutes; transfer to a 6- to 8-qt. slow cooker.

Deglaze skillet with ale, scraping up any brown bits. Add broth and reduce by half, 10 minutes. Stir in ketchup, mustard, and Worcestershire; add mixture to slow cooker, then add pickling spice sachet. Cover slow cooker and cook beef until fork-tender on high setting, about 5 hours.

Remove beef from slow cooker and shred using two forks. Transfer braising liquid to a saucepan (discard sachet) and cook over medium-high heat until reduced by half, about 20 minutes; stir in vinegar. Add beef to sauce to heat through, 5 minutes.

For the slaw, whisk together vinegar, oil, Dijon, shallots, honey, and cayenne for the vinaigrette. Toss coleslaw mix, apples, and onions in a bowl with vinaigrette; season with salt and black pepper. Stir in parsley just before serving.

Deglazing the skillet with apple ale adds apple flavor and helps dissolve the flavorful bits in the pan.
