Easy Pulled Beef

Easy Pulled Beef

This is a great recipe that is made ahead in a slow cooker. It can be served with a quinoa salad and a vegetable, and it works well for backyard Bar-b-q gatherings. Or if you are in Calgary, it’s a good way to serve up beef at your next western stampede-style party. The beef is tender and could be a ‘beef on a bun’ type of meal. Use whole grain buns and simply add a couple of healthy salads, and you’ve got it made!
