Shredded Beef Master Recipe
pounds boneless beef chuck pot roast
14 ounce can broth
tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
teaspoons dry mustard
teaspoon dried thyme
teaspoon cayenne pepper
- Trim fat from pot roast. Cut onions into thin wedges and mince garlic. Add onions and garlic to a 4 to 5-quart slow cooker. Top with beef. If necessary, cut up meat to fit in cooker. In a medium bowl, combine broth, Worcestershire sauce, dry mustard, thyme, salt, and cayenne pepper. Pour over beef in cooker. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 11 to 12 hours or on high-heat setting for 5-1/2 to 6 hours. Remove beef and onion from cooker, reserving juices. Using two forks, shred beef, discarding any fat. Skim fat from juices. Add onion to beef; add enough juices to beef to moisten. Place 2-cup portions of beef in airtight containers and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Makes 6 cups.
