Last week, I made a Classic Pot Roast in the Crock Pot! It’s one of my favorite comfort food meals, especially in the Fall when days are shorter and it starts to get chilly. Thankfully, the leftovers from this roast are so tender and savory, with a little added seasoning, they make flavorful (and easy!) shredded beef burritos!
You’ll want about a cup and a half of leftover roast. Shred the meat and put it in a skillet with a package of burrito seasoning and 3/4 cup of water. For this recipe, I used Lawry’s Burrito Seasoning Mix, but if you have your own favorite, by all means, use that! Heat over medium flame and simmer for about five minutes. While the meat is simmering, it’s the perfect time to shred cheese, dice tomatoes and onions and slice lettuce for burrito toppings. You can also add beans, avocado, pico di gallo or sour cream! It’s up to you! We made seasoned rice to complete our dinner.
Warm the flour tortillas on the stove top to soften them up a little. Place the open tortilla on a plate and get ready to assemble your delicious shredded beef burritos! Place a quarter of the meat on the tortilla, then place your favorite toppings over it and wrap it all up!
I love being able to make two or three dinners from one crock pot meal. So far, we had Classic Pot Roast and now, Shredded Beef Burritos. Coming up next? Vegetable Beef Soup!
