Slow Cooker Pulled Beef
I’ve never used meat claws before and I had some to review. Since I love pulled beef, I decided to make it in the Crock Pot, which I rarely use. I had to run to the store anyway, so I started looking up recipes for pulled beef. If you Google “slow cooker pulled beef”, you’ll get over 600,000 hits. Because I didn’t have time to look them all up. I decided to take some of all the recipes I looked at and make my own recipe.
I purchased a beef shoulder roast of about 3 lbs. It didn’t have a lot of fat on it, so I didn’t trim any off of the roast. After opening the package, I drizzled a little olive oil on the roast, rubbed it in, and salted and peppered the one side. I put the seasoned side of the roast in the slow cooker and did the same thing to the exposed side.
After cutting the skins off of my garlic with a Nano Razor Ceramic Knife on the bamboo cutting board, I used a garlic mincer to mince 5 cloves of garlic right on top of the roast. You can use more or less depending on your personal taste. I sprinkled the roast with some Montreal Steak Seasoning for some added flavor. For the surprise ingredient, I measured out 3 cups of Dr Pepper soda in some stainless steel measuring cups to add to the Crock Pot for added fluid and flavor. I set the slow cooker on high and left it for 3 hours.
I used the meat claws to pull the beef and then popped it back into the Crock Pot to soak up the juicy goodness that was in there. It was definitely a hit with my guys. Next time, I want to try beer as the liquid. The alcohol burns off and it gives the meat a different flavor. The Montreal Steak Seasoning has a different taste and it quite apparent when you’re eating the meat. I might research some other herbs and seasonings.
