Slow Cooker Shredded Beef is perfect to add to so many delicious dishes and recipes. Make this simple beef recipe to keep on hand for so many easy dinner recipes.
Making Slow Cooker Shredded Beef to have on hand for recipes throughout the week has to be one of my favorite things ever. Well, that and making slow cooker chicken for the same purpose. But, having shredded beef stocked in the refrigerator just makes life easier.
And thankfully, it doesn’t take much thought, time, or energy on my part.
Some days, I have none to spare!
Do you ever feel like that?
Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love cooking. It is like free therapy for me. No need to pay to go sprawl out on someone’s sofa to tell them about my day when I can just head to my kitchen and get reenergized while baking a cake or making pie crust, making homemade bread, or even something as simple as making breakfast or supper for my family.
But some days, especially when our homeschooling day seems to linger from sun-up to sun-down, we’re running from one activity or appointment to another, and I haven’t even attempted to think about what to make for supper, having made shredded beef in the slow cooker is like the most brilliant thing I’ve ever done. It makes me feel like a genius or something.
And it sort of tastes like that, too.
So, pull that slow cooker out of the cabinet and get ready to make some delicious shredded beef. I’ve got some absolute delicious dishes that you’ll definitely want to have this beef ready and waiting to go into like shredded beef nachos, brunswick stew, enchilada casserole.
Here’s my Slow Cooker Shredded Beef recipe. You’ll love it. Promise.

my london broil was almost 5 lbs, I used your seasoning recipe then added a tablespoon or so of liquid hickory smoke flavor, about a 1/4 cup of onion flakes and a nest of fresh oregano and rosemary and cooked it on high in the crock pot for 5 hours . It turned out PERFECT, devine.. wonderful. Thank you for sharing this.

This was fantastic. The perfect solution to make enchiladas.
Mat, we, too, love to use this shredded beef for enchiladas. So glad you like it.
Precisely what I was looking for! Something “plain” but not unseasoned, more of a well cooked blank slate. I had a huge roast I’d bought on sale and was a bit overwhelmed with what to do with it for just two people. I was trying to think of how to do this myself but kept hemming and hawing over “Am I adding too much? Too little?” You figured it out for me. Now I can split it into 3-4 very different meals.
