Pulled Beef and Guacamole

Posted 2017-08-28 by Naomi follow
This delicious, tender pulled beef with guacamole and flat bread makes a great share platter. The dry rub gives this beef great flavour.

This is a great meal served at parties as the lettuce cups and flat bread make it easy to load the toppings, roll and eat. Serve with salad.
