One of my most favorite easy meals is slow cooker balsamic shredded beef! The reason it’s so easy is because it comes come with a laundry list of ingredients or steps in order to churn out some ridiculously delicious meat. While I enjoy cooking, I don’t have a ton of time. Recipes like this one make my life easier because they are so endlessly flavorful. There’s no browning of the meat required. I used to do that step, but out of sheer laziness one time, I didn’t do it. The meat came out just as good. Plus, this dish freezes really well. Just make sure to include the liquid from the dish, and you’ll be good to go.
Meal Ideas for Slow Cooker Balsamic Shredded Beef
1. Eat it with a sweet potato and roasted veggies.
2. Add it over gluten free pasta and top with some freshly grated parmesan cheese (if you’re okay with dairy. You can also add some peas to this version… it’s quite good. Just heat some up from your freezer!
3. Heat it up until it’s warm (not hot) and top a salad with it loaded with greens and other fresh veggies!
4. Make some tacos with it… it’s really good 🙂
These are a few ways that I’ve enjoyed this recipe. It’s really versatile and reheats well. Whatever you do, don’t throw away the liquid. If you want to drain the meat, that’s fine. But please save the liquid and use it. It can absolutely be frozen and used in the future. It’s just too good to waste!
