basic shredded beef

we use shredded beef in all kinds of dishes, tacos, enchiladas, sandwiches, burritos, chimichangas, tamales, and taquitos 🙂 it can be made ahead and frozen

  • beef roast, we use shoulder roast since our local market often has it on sale
  • peppers (your choice)
  • onions
  • crockpot or slow cooker

This is really really easy. Take your roast and put it in the cooker, add quartered onions and sliced peppers. You can add as much or as little as you like. We usually use about 2-3 onions and 5-6 peppers with a 2-3 pound roast. Add enough water to cover, turn it to medium and let it cook until tender. When you can pull it apart with two forks it is done. If you have too much liquid put it in a pan on the stove and cook it down until all the broth evaporates.

Wasn’t that simple? Depending on what we are using it for we will sometimes mix with cooked rice.
