Shredded Beef

Shredded beef, Some of the most popular dishes in Mexico, called “antojitos”, have shredded beef or chicken as the main ingredient. Therefore, I find it always good to make a big batch of it and have it ready for those nights when you’re in a hurry and want to make your favorite Mexican dinner at home.
