How to Make Hand Shredded Beef


  • 1Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  • 2Rub the beef thoroughly with the onion, garlic, seasonings and a little vegetable oil.
  • 3Wrap the meat in heavy-duty foil and seal the edges all around with tight crimps.
  • 4Place the meat in a baking dish and bake for about 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until the beef is tender enough to fall apart.
  • 5If you hear much sizzling as the meat cooks, turn the heat down.
  • 6When the beef is fork-tender, unwrap the top of the foil package, push aside the onions, and place the meat close to a broiler flame.
  • 7Allow to broil only until the top surface begins to look dry and is starting to brown.
  • 8Remove from the broiler and let the meat cool.
  • 9Shred it into long shreds with your fingers, then store them in the refrigerator (for up to a week) or freeze for use as a fill.
