Slow Cooker Shredded Mexican Beef
Slow Cooker Shredded Mexican Beef, throw the meat and ingredients in and forget for hours. It always comes out so tender. Well here is a take on the traditional mince burritos, using roasting beef. Enjoy!
Best of all, you can cook it in bulk and freeze it into meal-size portions so you can enjoy shredded Mexican Beef at any time!
Roasting Beef: This can be any cut of the following styles:
rolled rib roast
Any beef that is cheaper and needs to be cooked over a longer period of time is the best. Personally I’m a fan of gravy beef, even though it does have a higher fat content, it has a beautiful flavour and doesn’t seem to taste dry like other beef roasts.
Other Ways to Serve Shredded Beef:
On a baked potato with coleslaw and cheese
Have it on bread rolls with gravy.
Serve it on pizza with feta cheese and pumpkin
