  • 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.
