Step by step with pics:
First, melt one tbsp of butter in a big cast iron skillet and brown meat. 1 minute per side on high heat should do the trick. Transfer to crock pot that’s sprayed down with cooking spray.
Whisk together 3 cups of beef stock with corn starch. On a side note you can also use sorghum flour in this step to take advantage of its pro-testosterone and pro-DHT effects. Pour atop meat in the crock pot.
Chop onion into big chunks and along with garlic and place atop meat.
Rinse and chop 6 large potatoes and add to the pot, along with 1 1/2 cups baby carrots.
Finally, add an entire can of stewed tomatoes, juices and all to crock pot and cover. Cook slow on low for 8-10 hours or if you can’t wait set it to high for 4 or 5. Once the kitchen starts smelling good it’ll be tempting to lift the lid and check on this while it’s cooking, but do your best to leave it alone! Lifting the lid will add to the cooking time.
Once cooking time is up, meat should easily shred and look a little like this. Let cool for a bit and enjoy. Makes 6 protein packed servings or 3 for those who follow intermittent fasting.
