Pulled Beef Asado
Try this simple pulled beef Asado recipe that is literally slow cooked until it becomes so tender without using any fancy slow cooker.
- 1 pound beef brisket or shoulder
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 2 cloves garlic - minced
- 1 big onion - cut into slices
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 3-4 tablespoons Hoisin Sauce
- ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
Place the chunk of beef in a pot and fill it with enough water to submerge the meat and then some more.
Bring water to a rolling boil over high heat with the pot uncovered. Once boiling, cover pot with lid and lower temperature to low and let it boil for about 3-4 hours or until the meat is really tender.
Remove from broth and using 2 forks, pull the meat apart into shreds.
Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high. Saute garlic and onion until slightly browned.
Add the shredded beef, soy sauce, and hoisin sauce, ground pepper, and cayenne pepper.
Cook for a few minutes, stirring constantly, until well combined and the flavor is absorbed.
