Healthy Recipes for Shredded Meat Fillings
Great on fat free tortillas, gluten free rolls, or pita breads when paired with a refreshing homemade salsa, 360 Cookware creates a moist, delicate flavor. For healthy recipes with more kick, add a teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper and a few dashes of Tabasco to the liquid after shredding.
1 ½ pounds beef tenderloin
¼ cup water
3 Tbs red wine vinegar
1 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp cumin seed
1 tsp coriander seed
½ tsp ground black pepper
Heat your 360 four-quart stockpot over medium temperature until a drop of water dances across the surface, and sear the meat on all sides. Add the remaining ingredients to the pot, and reduce the heat to med-low, then cover to engage the vapor seal. Once the lid spins freely, cook for approx. 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to set for an additional 15 minutes, then carefully remove the tenderloin and shred by hand, using two forks. Strain the liquid to remove the seeds and place the meat and juices back in the 4-quart pot. Simmer, uncovered for another 10-15 min, or until the liquid has almost evaporated.
The same method can be applied for chicken filling, simply omit the Worcestershire sauce and use 1 ½ pounds of skinless chicken breasts. Sear the meat on one side, and then add the spices and liquids, as well as ¼ cup finely diced onion. Cook over medium-low heat for approx. 10-15 minutes. Best of all, these healthy recipes for fillings can be enjoyed hot or cold.
These fillings can be kept for 2-3 days in the refrigerator, and work great in coolers for sandwiches or wraps, offering no clean up, utensil free meals. Healthy Recipes for Yummy Mango Salsa, Yogurt Pellets, and Frozen Grapes
