Pizzas-pochettes au bœuf effiloché

It turns all teens hungry at the mere sight of these pizzas-pockets.


To laze in front of the fire, there is nothing better than a meat, letting it braise all day. It smells so good in the house and saliva just to the idea of the dinner that will be sure to be greedy. My recipe for beef pulled slow-cooker in the kitchen practically all alone, and you’ll have leftovers for another leave dinner to come. Comfort zero-effort at its best.
