Yesterday over at So Wonderful, So Marvelous, Michelle posted a recipe for crock pot chicken tacos. I know, yum, right? When you are done here, you should check those out. They are now on my "to make" list.
After explaining the recipe, she mentioned that she saw a great way to shred the meat on Pinterest. After the chicken came out of the crock pot, she put it in the stand mixer with the paddle attachment, turned it on, and ended up with perfectly shredded meat.
If you've ever hand shredded meat with a couple of forks and several cramps in your hands, I'm here to tell you this will change your life. (Assuming you have a stand mixer, of course.)
Yesterday I made Kalua pork (roast) in the crock pot, pulled it out, cut it into several large chunks and tossed it into my mixer bowl. I did just like she said and VOILA! Perfectly shredded meat.
I love it when this big old blog world makes my life easier! Thank you Michelle!
