shredding meat 101

In a recent post, “have camera, will swaddle” I asked for “easy, healthy, not too expensive and nursing mom/baby friendly meals” to take to my sister and her hubs over the next few weeks. Memarie Lane‘s idea to “throw some boneless pork or chicken in the crockpot with a bottle of barbecue sauce, shred it, and serve it on sandwich rolls” sounds perfect, but I admit – I’ve never shredded meat before. Didn’t have a clue. Do I need a knife? Seems like the pieces would be too big. A food processor? Seems like I would end up with pâté. or meat pudding.

So, I Googled.

I found two methods to shred meat. Both were found on Expert Village.

Chef Lori Schneider shows how to shred chicken with a fork and Chef Brandon Sarkis shows how to shred beef with your fingers.

I love the internet.
