Have you made pulled beef before? It’s one of those dishes that can seem super complicated but, in reality, is a cinch to make. That’s because this flavorful beef is prepared in the slow cooker. Over the course of 8 to 10 hours with almost zero prep time, the beef is transformed from an everyday steak into a melt-in-your-mouth delight.
But the best part is yet to come, because we’re going to take that juicy meat and turn it into Pulled Beef Sliders. Better than a burger, these little sliders are packing a ton of deliciousness in a small package. They’re easily prepared with ingredients already in your kitchen and are easily customizable to your family’s favorite preferences. Let’s get in the kitchen!
Start by adding all the ingredients into the slow cooker and letting them come together over low heat for 8 to 10 hours — yes, that’s all the prep that’s required for these pulled beef sliders.
I love how just a handful of dried spices, beef broth, an onion and coconut aminos, a soy sauce-like dressing that’s soy-free and Paleo-friendly, are going to turn this steak into some of the best beef you’ve had.
Then, when the meat is cooked and fall-off-the-bone tender, grab a fork and shred it to the consistency you like. By this point, the beef should be so tender that this part will be easy. Taste the beef at this point — if you haven’t already — and add seasonings as needed.
To assemble your pulled beef slider, load the beef onto a mini gluten-free bun and add your favorite toppings, like mustard, sauerkraut, ketchup and pickles. Everyone in the family can assemble to their liking! The meat in these pulled beef sliders is also delicious atop a fresh green salad, as the fixings for tacos or burrito bowls or with a side of veggies. I hope you like these pulled beef sliders as much as we do.
