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.

Recipe Review


    1. I love this shredded beef to make my Shredded Beef Nachos, Brunswick Stew, and my Enchilada Casserole, to name a few.

  1. Hi, new here … the recipe sounds great and I’d love to try it, but I have a question first — is “1 3-4 pound” one piece of beef weighing three to four pounds, or a piece of beef weighing one-and-three-quarter pounds? Going by the amount of liquid to be added, I’m inclined towards the latter, but … help, please?

    1. You could use sirloin tip roast, Pat. It would need to cook at least 8 hours on low.

    1. This recipe should work great for a 4-quart slow cooker, Linda. Hope you enjoy!

  2. Hi Robyn, question ? I used to cook a pot roast to die for but lately they come out hard . My last one in the oven at 200 for 8 hours it was a 4lb roast it was very good but it did not break apart. Can you give me any help THANK YOU Rodney Marshbanks

    1. Rodney, try my Classic Pot Roast Recipe. This recipe gives instructions on how to cook in oven, slow cooker, and instant pot. Hope this helps.

    This the second time I have made this recipe. This time I added a scoop of better than bullion. Made the recipe perfect. I put it over buttered noodles last time and this time I put it over steamed rice and vegetables. The meat and gravy are just fantastic. Thank you for sharing.
