This Paleo slow-cooked shredded beef recipe is so good you can eat it by itself, but it’s also a great ingredient in tons of other dishes.

How To Use This Shredded Beef

This beef is amazing all by itself, but the real genius of this recipe is that it can be used a million different ways. Well, maybe not a million, but it is quite handy.

If I’m going to dedicate time to a recipe, I want to know it’s going to be put to good use.

So it’s Sunday night, I’ve made a batch, and I want to use it several different ways throughout the week. I actually came up with more than a week’s worth of dinners though!

The first night, I served it over cauliflower rice. This is one of the simplest ways to eat it, and it has been made even simpler since my grocery store began carrying pre-riced microwavable cauliflower.

No added ingredients, just cook and go. Love it!

Another great meal option is to serve this beef over shirataki noodles. A little Paleo gravy could be awesome for this dinner.

Shredded beef sliders offer a more casual experience. Use this 90-second Paleo microwave bread to make buns.

You can’t talk shredded beef without mentioning tacos. Celebrate Taco Tuesday Paleo-style — these tortilla recipes will help you out.

Continuing on the Mexican food theme, why not make some shredded beef nachos? You can use bell peppers in place of tortilla chips and add your favorite toppings.

For a more barbeque flair, whip up some Paleo barbeque sauce and bake Paleo cornbread muffins for a side dish.

Or, stir-fry some veggies and enjoy an Asian-style dinner. Broccoli and beef pair really nicely together.

You could also place the beef inside lettuce wraps and enjoy the contrast between the warm beef and cool, crisp lettuce.

As you can see, the only limit to this Paleo slow-cooked shredded beef recipe is your imagination. I’m sure you can cook up even more ideas!

Paleo Slow-Cooked Shredded Beef Recipe

  • Author: Louise Hendon
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 3 hours 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 3 hours 50 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x
  • Category: Dinner, Entree
  • Cuisine: American


This beef is so versatile you can use it in anything, but good enough to simply eat it on its own.


  • 1.12 lbs (504g) of beef roast, off the bone
  • 2 Tablespoon (30 ml) of olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion (55 g), peeled and sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves (6 g), peeled and minced
  • 1 Tablespoon (5 g) of fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) of red wine vinegar
  • 2 cups (480 ml) of hot beef broth
  • 1/2 cup (64 g) of Paleo ketchup
  • 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) of gluten-free tamari sauce or coconut aminos
  • 2 teaspoons (8 g) of erythritol


  1. Halve the beef roast along the grain (having two pieces will ensure the beef is fully submerged in stock in the slow cooker. This is optional but recommended.)
  2. Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a large pan and color the beef until dark and golden on all sides. Remove and set aside.
  3. Heat the remaining olive oil in the same pan and cook the onions, garlic, and ginger until the onions have completely softened and caramelized. Deglaze the pan with the red wine vinegar. Once the vinegar has cooked out, pour in the beef broth to warm through for a minute.
  4. Pour the entire mixture into a slow cooker and submerge the browned beef piece(s). Cover and cook for 3 hours on high. Remove the beef and set aside, covered with foil to rest.
  5. Pour the remaining broth mixture from the slow cooker into a clean pot on the stove. Add the Paleo ketchup and tamari. Reduce the mixture over moderately high heat to one-third of the original yield, stirring occasionally. Stir in the sweetener.
  6. In the meantime, after the beef has rested for at least 10 minutes, use two forks to shred. Set aside a 1/2 cup of the sauce aside for your guests.  Add the pulled beef to the pot and stir well to combine.
  7. Serve the shredded beef with your favorite side dish and enjoy!
