Tips

Cook's Notes:

I use this recipe whenever I need shredded beef for any other recipe. I find that the beef is perfect seasoned and tender, so it works very well.

Depending on how I am using this beef, I will add other seasonings to the water when applicable.

You need to over-season the meat aggressively to ensure the flavor withstands the addition of the water.

A simple yet flavorful recipe that can be a base for a multitude of meals. Rather than use water I used unsalted beef broth. I used this for beef dip sandwiches without any further seasoning needed. Shredded beef tacos are next on the menu. Read More

The simplest recipes are usually the best - no exceptions here. Followed the directions to be generous with seasonings (even though I halved the water and added a 10 oz. can of Campbell’s beef broth & 1/4-cup of coffee). Made tacos - DELICIOUS! My new go to for shredded beef!! Read More

I liked this but changed it slightly. After rubbing spices on the roast I poured 1 can of beer + water to make 1 1/2 cups of liquid. I pressure cooked it in my instant pot and shredded it, then returned it to the pot and put 12 oz burbon bbq sauce over it and slow cooked for 2 hours. It made killer bbq beef sandwiches. Read More
