About a month ago we received a very large shipment of grass fed meat from our friends at US Wellness Meats. Not only did we receive some great cuts of steak, we also received some cooked items in our package such as this slow cooked, pulled beef. Many of you may remember, or have even tried our pulled pork recipe from a month ago. If you enjoyed that recipe, then this breakfast is for you. You could even use leftovers from our pulled pork recipe as a substitution for this meal.
The slow cooked pulled beef from US Wellness came to us unseasoned which was okay because we wanted to endow it with some of our favorite spices. This is a handy item to have on hand for some quick nourishment, and one we’ll definitely be ordering again in the future. If you’re like us, then there is no such thing as ‘leftover beef’ in your house. This is what makes this product from US Wellness Meats so nice – it is like having some perfectly cooked meat ready for your enjoyment the next morning.
- 1/3 lb of cooked, shredded beef or pork
- 2 eggs, poached or over-easy

- Once heated, place shredded beef into skillet.
- Stir in spices until evenly distributed.
- In a separate non-stick skillet, heat a small amount of ghee or coconut oil over medium heat.
- Place an egg poacher (or circular cookie cutter) in the skillet, and crack an egg into it.
- Add approximately 1/2 cup of water to the frying pan and cover it with a lid.
- Cook egg for approximately 5 minutes on medium heat until the top of the egg has cooked.
- Carefully release the egg from the egg poacher with a butter knife.
- Place beef on plate, top with the poached eggs, and garnish with some arugula.
- Drizzle it all with Tabasco sauce if you want an extra kick, and serve!
As always, enjoy.
Beautiful, real food! I love all kinds of stuff topped with a fried egg…. they are great on ham sandwiches, turkey sandwiches, quesadillas, a great way to get protein.
Love your blog!
Thanks Tracy! You're one of our longest running followers (yes, we notice that, even as our website grows!) … thanks for continuing to follow. We enjoy getting your always-generous comments! This was a great breakfast recipe, and a simple one. It was total spontaneity on the particular morning I made this to shoot it for the blog. One thing led to another (as so often happens), and before I knew it I was taking 'finished' photos of the dish. It was one of those funny times when it all just came together in a thoughtful way that we wanted to share. Glad you enjoyed it!
