The shredded beef, shredded beef, or shredded beef is a preparation based on frayed meat consumed in Spain, Honduras, Colombia, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Panama.
It prepared with a cut of the cow known as a skirt, although flank steak or “sobrebarriga” can also use. The meat usually cooked with aromatic herbs, such as bay leaves, thyme, coriander, cloves, and add vegetables and condiments. It is traditionally served with white rice, fried banana slices, and often on top of a good corn arepa.
It should take into account that meat is an indispensable food in the diet of any person since it provides a large number of nutrients to the body. If you eat it, it will provide your body with many proteins, iron, vitamin B12, and minerals such as zinc, magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus, and a low amount of fat and carbohydrates.
It is essential to prevent anemia. It helps the formation of hemoglobin, a protein of red blood cells that carries oxygen to the blood, and also helps the good performance of our body and the proper functioning of our brain. Of course, the consumption of excess meat generates extra proteins and fats or recommended for our body.
One of the advantages we have when preparing shredded beef is that by shredding the meat into small strands, it is straightforward to digest in our body, especially for the little ones in the house.
