Here’s a cooking confession – I make a shredded beef dish in my Crockpot almost every week, either this delicious Italian beef or Tex-Mex Shredded Beef. They’re easy and healthy, I can throw them together in 5 minutes, and everyone in my family loves them.
The beef can be eaten as a main dish, with simple sides such as brown rice and a salad, or as a filling for sandwiches, tacos or quesadillas. This makes it an ideal meal when family members have different ideas about what constitutes a yummy dinner – my husband and I can eat it with brown rice, one son can use it to make tacos, and the other can make a sandwich. Everyone is happy!
This recipe makes a lot of meat, so I always have enough for a second meal or lunches to take to work. You can take it to a potluck along with some rolls and cheese and let people make their own sandwiches. It’s my go-to option on very busy days. I hope you and your family will enjoy it.
