Cook on low for about 8 hours, or until the beef is tender and you can easily shred it with a fork.

Depending on the meat quality, sometimes it takes a little longer than 8 hours.

One the meat is tender and cooked all the way through, shred the beef and place it back into the crockpot.

Once it’s shredded, turn to high heat, and cook for about 15-30 more minutes. We do this so that it cooks the beef a little more and becomes as flavorful as it can.
