I require a lot of protein to make it through my days because I’m pretty active. This low-amine shredded beef recipe is easy and very satisfying. The flavors meld together in a slightly Mexican / Indian direction. I did not make the low-amine shredded beef spicy at all out of courtesy to my Sugar (he doesn’t do face-meltingly, mind-numbing spicy foods like I do), but if you can handle the heat, this recipe is just BEGGING to be spicy. For fully gluten-free, use gluten-free bread, gluten-free tortillas, or lettuce or cabbage wraps.

3 lb bottom sirloin roast (low-amine beef roast)

1/4 C safflower oil

4 medium onions, quartered

1 large shallot, diced

10 cloves garlic, pressed

3/4 C applesauce (unsweetened)

2 C beef broth

1 large bunch parsley (stems discarded), minced

Celery heart and bitters, minced

3 bay leaves

2 Tbsp savory

2 Tbsp marjoram

1 tsp cinnamon

2 tsp salt

4 Tbsp cumin

1 Tbsp coriander

1/2 tsp ascorbic acid

1 C cilantro, minced

Habanero, Cayenne, or Jalapeno, if you can take the heat. To taste.

  • If beef roast has kitchen twine around it, remove and discard twine.
  • In a large stock pot, add all ingredients except cilantro. Turn temperature to medium high and once to temperature, reduce to a simmer.
  • Simmer for 3 hours.
  • Remove bay leaves.
  • Remove low-amine beef and set on large cutting board.
  • Using two forks, shred beef. Set aside in a large bowl.
  • Use an immersion blender (or food processor, in batches) to blend onions, parsley, and remaining low-amine stock pot ingredients. Blend until very smooth.
  • Add cilantro to beef, and add in puree one spoonful at a time until desired consistency is reached. Any left over can be saved for cooking with beans, as the base of a low-amine soup, served over rice, or more.
  • Mix beef, puree, and cilantro together well and serve on toasted Ciabatta rolls, gluten-free hamburger buns, lettuce wraps, over rice, or however desired.
  • Enjoy!
