Prepared Pulled Beef in BBQ Sauce
You’ve likely had pulled pork before - the tender, slow-cooked meat with tangy, smoky barbecue sauce served on a fresh hamburger-style bun. It‘s a mainstay of backyard summer potlucks and Texas-style BBQ. truLOCAL’s pulled beef is very similar except that it’s made with 100% grass-fed and finished beef instead of pork. It’s pre-cooked in small batches by our friends at NUVO Taste so that it’s perfectly cooked and seasoned. Made of high-quality ingredients that are sourced locally, these convenient meals are perfect for busy weeknights, or days when cooking just feels like a chore. Why is it important that it’s grass-fed beef? Well, grass-fed and finished beef has a firmer texture, perfect for making pulled beef. Grass-fed beef’s also leaner, higher in antioxidants and vitamins, and has twice as many omega-3 fatty acids as regular grain-fed beef. Health benefits aside, we love our pulled beef because it is delicious and incredibly easy to prepare.
COOKING TIP: Pulled beef usually takes hours of cooking but our friends at NUVO Taste have done all the work for you by cooking it slowly at low temperatures so that it’s tender, juicy, and delicious. It’s fully cooked so all you have to do is heat it up by submerging the bag in simmering water for 30-35 minutes from frozen or 10-15 minutes from thawed. We love this pulled beef served on a toasted bun with coleslaw or in tacos. But it is so versatile that it could also be used as a base for chilli or as a topper for a salad, nachos, or poutine. Mmmmmmm, pulled beef poutine! Consume within 3 days after thawing.
