Question Pulled pork without the pork?

I have a great pulled pork recipe I want to try but my husband won't eat pork. Anyone heard of making it with beef?

Sure. You can do a brisket - just call it shredded beef.

I cook a beef roast until it's pullable. Most people are afraid to overcook a roast. They get to that slicing stage and say it's dry - so they don't want to cook it longer. But, cooking it longer only makes it more tender, not more dry.

You can do it with chicken also.

If you do it with beef, I consider a fattier cut, similar to the Boston butt for pork. I'd go with a boneless chuck rioast.

+ 1 for the Chuck Roast idea...It shreds well...is good chopped, and any left overs can be made into a quick and simple chili!!

I make mine with chicken. I buy a whole roaster and boil it with onions and celery until it's falling off the bones. Let it cool then pick out all the bones and shred the meat and proceed from there. I save the "water" and have a good chicken stock for soups. Several meals from one chicken!

Don't know what your recipe says. But, if it calls for something like cooking a 2.5 - 3 lb pork shoulder roast on LOW for 7-9 hours - that would work for a beef chuck roast of about the same size.
