Instructions
Basic pulled beef
  1. Add the stock to a slow cooker/crock-pot. It can be in ice cubes if you store your stock like that. It could be just water or sometimes I even use Whey left over from making cheese. The point is to have a liquid to prevent the meat from catching and burning before it has had a chance to render out some of the fat.
  2. Add Bolar Blade. If you want to cook a spiced pulled beef you can smear a spice mix over the top surface of the roast, but for this recipe we’ll add the flavorings after the meat has been cooked and pulled.
  3. Add Bay leaves and Thyme. These herbs specifically compliment beef and make the resulting flavor more beef-like.
  4. Cook with the lid on for 6-10 hours, or until the meat to start to fall apart. There will be a lot of cooking liquid that’s normal.
  5. With a pair of forks tease the meat apart so the fibers draw up the cooking liquid.
  6. I portion the beef into 200 mg bags for 2 servings per bag, and then freeze.
  7. NOTE: This is unseasoned, so we will have to add salt to each meal to taste.
