    Great idea! I’m going to buy a boneless pork butt, put it in the slow cooker and shred the heck out of it! Then I’m going to divide it up and put it in the freezer for at least 3 meals. I’m getting into the freezer cooking thing.

    As I said, this was great, but what I really want to know is WHAT IS YOUR SKIN CARE ROUTINE? I think you were probably “just born that way”(like Lady GaGa) but maybe you could share just a little of what you do.

    Great idea!! However, I don’t have a stand mixer, actually have not used a stand mixer in over 25 years. Would a hand mixer with one or two open beaters work (the ones that do not have a post down the middle)? It is a heavy duty model. Pulled pork is a strong on this weeks menu and might just try my hand mixer with one beater.

      • Kathy K. says

        Connie, and Christy: It will work with a hand mixer and regular beaters. I’ve always wondered whether it would, and I made Orange Pork in the crock pot today, and decided I was going to try it. I don’t have a paddle for either of my Sunbeams.

        I have my Aunt Ruth’s old Sunbeam stand mixer, (and I’d have my mothers’ Sunbeam, but for my own folly). I generally use the Sunbeam hand mixer instead of the stand mixer as it’s a lot lighter for me to handle and carry in and out from/to the garage-one of the major reasons why I don’t have the Kitchen Aid stand mixer I’ve always wanted: no space, too heavy at my age, and I don’t bake and cook like I used to. so let that dream go.

        The Sunbeam hand mixer doesn’t start out really low-more like 2nd gear, or 1.5, but it did work well. I will keep doing it that way. Just not with a white t-shirt on-unless I put an apron on.

    Just tried this on a big pork shoulder and it worked like a charm! So glad you shared this idea.

    Just to let you know though, the meat does not have to be hot for this to work. Ours was on the cold side as it had been in the fridge because it was too late to do this last night. We heated it slightly on the grill, before shredding, but it was definitely not hot.

    Thanks again for sharing, and please do more videos.

    I have a very old Osterizer that did not have the paddle blade so I tried this with the dough hooks and it worked very well for me. I didn’t use the slowest speed but never even got to the medium range speed. Much easier than anything else I have tried.

  5. frederica johnson says

    I am SO impressed with this. I’ve never done a good job using two forks. I can’t wait to do this. I think it will be pulled pork first. I’ll let you know.
    Wow, what an egomaniac; every sentence above started with “I”.

    Thanks, Christy

  6. Sandy McWaters says

    Works great! I have always preferred chicken salad with shredded meat but did not like dealing with the shredding part….but this way it’s a breeze! Best chicken salad I have made in a long time. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Linda says

    Love this method and I’ve used it twice since I saw your article. At first I was hesitant to dirty extra stuff but I came to my senses when I realized I used a container to let it cool, a knife and two forks. Thanks for the tip Christy!

  8. Regina says

    Wonderful idea! I’m making chicken noodle soup tonight so I’m going to do this! I hate shredding by hand, I have to let the meat cool then shred it. Now your idea I’ll not have to do it! Than you!

    I hope you do more videos, I love the visual aspect of it. And seeing you is also a bonus!

  9. ConnieQuintana says

    Ever since I read this article, I shred my pork roast with my stand mixer. Usually I do not have an audience. Today, I shredded the pork and heard comments such as “Oh wow!”, “Look at that”. etc. You have made me a genius. I did tell the folks where I got the idea tho. . It is soooo easy. Thanks.

  10. Nancy says

    I must say I tried this shredding technique this weekend with Pork Carnitas
    after they were cooked in crock pot. OMG!!! I will never spend time shredding
    with a fork again! We live in South Texas and love our shredded meat in tacos,
    burritos, soup and fold-overs. Thanks for a fabulous tip. Can’t wait to try it on
    chicken! love your site!

  11. Val says

    I have a satellite dish for internet access and am charged by the amount of “usage”. Since videos eat up bandwidth I don’t watch them but I think I got the idea through the comments — can’t wait to try shredding meat with my mixer. Thank you!
