[Recipe Share Monday] Easy Shredded Beef.

Monday, January 26, 2015

I seriously didn't intend to share anything about the Whole30 so soon, but seriously, I HAVE to share this recipe with you. It's crazy easy and perfect for mom's who don't have a lot of time. We made it last week for the first time and it lasted us all week for various lunches and dinners. We will totally be using this recipe once we're off our diet.

I'm not one to use the crock pot often. Why? I have NO idea. It is seriously SO easy and SO convenient. You just pop all your ingredients in the pot, turn it on, set the timer, and go on about your day. But for some reason, I never think to use it.

Until now.

Easy Shredded Beef

2-3lb sirloin steak 
(or round roast or rib roast - whatever is cheapest)
1-2 large yellow onions, sliced
½ cup chicken or beef broth
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon white pepper
¼ teaspoon chili powder

Pull out crock pot.
Put meat in pot.
Put broth in pot.
Put onions on top of meat.
Put spices on top of meat and onions.
Put crock pot on low for 8-10 hours.
(I did 8 hours).
Take 2 forks and shred that b*tch.
Eat it like you mean it.

No joke. Those are her exact words - "take 2 forks and shred that b*tch and eat it like you mean it". Love it.

I found this recipe for easy shredded beef (that is Whole30 approved) and immediately knew we would try it on our diet. The recipe made it sound so simple and believe me, it was. I literally put in my slow cooker liner (love easy clean up!), tossed in all the ingredients, shut the lid, turned on the timer, and left it to do its thing for 8 hours. And then? 8 hours later = perfect, easy to shred beef.

We used it multiple times throughout the week. These are just a few examples.

paleo nachos // stuffed red peppers
salad // sweet potato topped with shredded beef and other goodies

If I can do it, you can do it!

Happy Eating!


  1. Oh I love my crockpot! There is nothing better than coming home after work and your house smelling absolutely amazing! I am going to have to try out these dinners!

  2. Looks delicious! I don't know why I don't use my slow cooker more either! I should really try it sometime!

  3. It's funny that I don't really like beef yet this looks really good! I may have to give it a try.

  4. Yum! I love how easy the crockpot makes things!

  5. Ooo, yum! That looks so good! I love using our crockpot and am always looking for new recipes. Definitely saving this one! Thanks for sharing :)

  6. This looks great! Hey, I saw you commented on Natasha's post about the workshop. We often have women travel in for the workshops from different states and cities, so we are happy to give you a list of hotel and travel accommodations if you decide to come :) xoxo


  7. Well it sure sounds good! I wanna make it now! And, I love my crock pot.

  8. Looks great!! In fact, I might be using it this week. I love when you can make a batch of something and then use it and re-use it for multiple meals. Win/win. Yes, the liners, best ever. Before those, the Mr. and I would always fight over who had to wash it. Haha :)

  9. I just want to take that and throw it in a tortilla with some cheese. That's gotta be Whole30, right??

  10. I always forget about my crock too! I've been trying to utilize it more...you know, so the hubby can "cook" once we have another baby. lol Your foodie pics look amazing btw! We might have to try this recipe! Love the idea of putting the shredded beef on a sweet potato!
