2 Tbsps. extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 1⁄2 -2 cups water
- Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C). Heat oil in Dutch oven or large heavy, ovenproof pan over medium-high heat.
- Season roast with salt and pepper. In preheated pan, brown beef on all sides. Add enough water to reach halfway up the sides of the roast. Cover pan with tight-fitting lid and finish in the oven for 21/2 to 3 hours. Beef will begin to fall apart.
- Allow beef to cool 15 to 20 minutes and shred with two forks.
Chefs tip: This is a great recipe to prepare ahead of time. Refrigerate 2 to 3 days or freeze up to 6 months. Simply reheat over low heat in a covered pan or on low in a crock-pot.
