Shredded Beef or Shredded Chicken

Gluten Free Shredded Beef of Chicken

When my 3 kids were still at home after out move to Florida and I was working intently on my first draft of Show Biz Kids Guidebook, I needed some help at home. A lovely lady named Soheila came to help me cook one day a week. I finished the book and she eventually left yet not without sharing some of her very simple and quick to make dishes. Here is a quick and tasty dish served over rice, in flour or corn tortillas (with or without grated cheese) or all alone for a little protein to keep you rolling along. Great for little nibbles during the day too.

Quantities are really to taste.
I load up with the chopped garlic, as I LOVE garlic, for example

3-4 chicken breasts or good sized Flank steak
Olive oil
Onion (chopped)
½ can tomato sauce
3 tablespoons tomato paste
Cumin this is the key ingredient to the dish

  1. Boil chicken breasts for 45 minutes.
  2. Boil beef for 2 hours.
  3. Shred the chicken.
  4. Pour oil in pan and add, garlic, cilantro and pepper and sauté for 5-6 minutes.
  5. Add lots of salt and cumin and tomato sauce and paste, and cook for another 15 minutes.
  6. Mix the sauce together with meat of your choice.
  7. Serve your own way or my suggestions above.
