Slow Cooker Barbacoa-Style Beef Tacos

Barboacoa-style beef tacos – we made this recipe for dinner tonight (ok, this was written ages ago) and it was omg incredible. It’s meant for a slow-cooker, though I’m sure you can adapt it. The marinade was super easy and we threw it together this morning and then the house smelt great all day. Here’s the video, I’ll put their transcribed recipe in the comments and a pic of our tacos. We didn’t make any modifications other than halfing the recipe since there are only 2 of us.

Serves 8-10

Ingredients:
– 3-4 lb Beef Chuck Roast
– 4 Chipotles in Adobo Sauce – Chopped
– 5 Cloves Garlic – Chopped
– 1 Tbsp. Ground Cumin
– 3 tsp Oregano
– 1/4 tsp Ground Cloves
– 1/2 Cup Beef Broth
– 1/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
– 1/4 Cup (fresh) Lime Juice
– 3 Bay Leaves
– Salt
– Pepper

For Serving: (optional)
– Flour/Corn Tortillas
– Cheese
– Sour Cream
– Salsa
– Guacamole
– Rice
– Black Beans

Cut the Roast into approximately six to eight large chunks. Season well with salt and pepper on all sides. Heat oil in a large skillet and sear the beef chunks (in batches if necessary) on all sides until browned. Transfer seared meat to slow cooker.

In a medium bowl combine chopped chipotles, garlic, cumin, oregano, cloves, beef broth, vinegar, lime juice, and additional salt and pepper (to taste). Mix well, then pour over beef in the slow cooker and add bay leaves. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours, until meat shreds easily.

Remove bay leaves. Remove and shred beef. Return beef to slow cooker to marinate at least 10 more minutes, or until ready to serve. Great on nachos, tacos, and burritos! Enjoy!
