Ingredients: 

  • 3 lbs chuck roast beef
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp curry paste
  • 18 oz bone broth
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or your favorite cheese)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 8 low-carb tortillas
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: sour cream, avocado, salsa, and fresh cilantro for serving

Instructions: 

1. Prepare the Beef:

  • Preheat your oven to 300°F.
  • Season the chuck roast with salt and pepper.
  • In a large oven-safe pot or Dutch oven, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add the chuck roast and sear on all sides until browned. Remove and set aside.

2. Cook the Beef:

  • In the same pot, add the minced garlic and sauté until fragrant.
  • Add the curry paste, ground cumin, and smoked paprika, and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Pour in the bone broth, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pot.
  • Return the chuck roast to the pot, cover with a lid, and transfer to the preheated oven.
  • Cook for 3-4 hours, or until the beef is tender and easily shredded with a fork.

3. Shred the Beef:

 

  • Remove the pot from the oven and transfer the chuck roast to a large bowl.
  • Shred the beef using two forks, discarding any excess fat. Set aside.

4. Prepare the Quesadilla Filling:

  • In a large skillet, heat a little olive oil over medium heat.
  • Add the chopped onion and bell pepper, and sauté until softened.
  • Add the shredded beef to the skillet and mix well. Cook until heated through.

5. Assemble the Quesadillas:

  • Preheat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat.
  • Place one low-carb tortilla on the skillet and sprinkle with a mix of cheddar and mozzarella cheese.
  • Add a generous amount of the beef mixture on top of the cheese.
  • Sprinkle more cheese over the beef and top with another tortilla.
  • Cook until the bottom tortilla is golden brown and crispy, then carefully flip and cook the other side until golden brown and the cheese is melted.

6. Serve:

 

  • Remove the quesadilla from the skillet and cut into wedges.
  • Serve with sour cream, avocado, salsa, and fresh cilantro if desired.

Enjoy your delicious low-carb beef quesadillas!
