05 Feb The most versatile and easy shredded beef
Welcome back to Sandtondiet and to this week’s versatile and easy shredded beef recipe.
In my opinion everyone should have a handful of easy and versatile recipes in their repertoire. You should be able to use these recipes in a variety of different dishes so that one recipe can be used many times over.
This versatile and shredded beef is a great example of this kind of recipe. The beef is made using store cupboard ingredients and can be used in so many different ways. The meat can served just as it is with rice or baked potatoes. You could use this recipe in a beef ragu style pasta dish. Alternatively the shredded beef can be used instead of mince in lasagne. And the list goes on…
One of the other reasons that I really like this versatile and easy shredded beef recipe is that it is a dump-style recipe. All the ingredients are placed in the pot at once and then left alone to do their magic. The only input from your side is to prepare the vegetables and then to stir the pot every now and then. What could be better than a meal that makes itself!
I hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as we did. Until next time, Leanne xoxo
