Jim Davis: Hi! Chef Jim Davis here for Harris Teeter. I am going to show you now how to shred barbecued beef.
Now, this is beef that I took and prepared in a pressure cooker. However, you can prepare it on a grill; you can prepare it in the oven. I happened to use a pressure cooker and I was able to do it fairly quickly.
All we want to do is take it apart so we use a couple of forks for that. This is how you shred a beef for barbecue. We've used the same process. If you want to shred up chicken or pork or anything for barbecue, you shred it like this, fork is the easiest way to do it that I know of. Now then to finish it, we would add a little barbecue sauce to that, and that's how you shred beef for barbecue.
