If you need an easy slow-cooker shredded beef, try the recipe I use in my Shredded Beef Tacos (EF). If you would rather try shredded chicken in this recipe, try my recipe for Shredded Chicken (EF, DF, GF) also cooked in the slow-cooker.
It just occurred to me, that I posted this in time for Cinco de Mayo! I didn't even plan that. This recipe was just next on my list to post. Great timing! Happy Cinco de Mayo, everyone!
1 lb cooked shredded beef
½ t onion powder
½ t garlic powder
1 T cumin
½ t freshly ground pepper
Salt to taste
Pie crust dough (enough for two 9” pie crusts)
Preheat oven to temperature recommended for pie crust. Mix meat with spices and set aside. Roll out pie crust and cut into circles, about 3-4 inches in diameter. I used a large plastic cup to cut mine. Fill each with shredded beef mixture and shredded cheese. Fold dough in half over meat mixture and cheese and seal seam with a fork. Bake according to pie crust instructions, about 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
