“Simple and delicious. The cut of the beef and the slow cooking will lead to a stringy roast that is perfect for shredded BBQ sandwiches, shredded tacos, enchiladas or open-faced hot beef sandwiches. PBR make for a great stock for slow cooking. Beer does an excellent job of tenderizing, breaking down muscle fiber and adds tremendous flavor. This roast will fall apart and virtually shred itself”
