Summer is a great time for shredded beef, pork or chicken barbecue sandwiches. I like to cook the meat or poultry in the slow cooker. I cook lots and often freeze some of it for another meal. It’s also a great way to feed a crowd.
The problem with cooking large quantities is that shredding the meat can take a while. I learned a great time-saving tip from Brian of Fire and Salt.
Put the meat in your stand mixer with the paddle attachment and mix it on a low or medium low speed. It shreds the meat for you with no effort!
