Barbacoa Style Beef Tacos

Saw this recipe on Facebook. I follow and a video showed up on my wall of how to make these tacos. I watched it and HAD to make them…

3-4 lb Beef Chuck Roast
1 can Chipotles in Adobo Sauce – Chopped
5 Cloves Garlic – minced
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 Lime Juice
Bay Leaves

For Serving:
Flour Tortillas
Sour Cream

Cut the Roast into approximately six to eight large chunks.

Season each piece with salt and pepper on all sides.

Heat oil in a large skillet or heat 2 skillets.

I had a total of 8 pieces so instead of searing the meat in batches, I seared them in two pans (or you can do them in batches).

Sear the beef chunks on all sides until nice and browned.

Once the beef is seared then transfer it to slow cooker.

In a medium bowl combine chopped chipotles, garlic,




beef broth,

vinegar, lime juice,

and 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, or until the meat shreds easily.

Once meat has cooked 8-10 hours, remove bay leaves, and remove the meat and shred the beef. Then return the beef back to the slow cooker and let the meat marinade for 10-15 minutes, or until you are ready to serve.

I served mine as taco’s with flour tortillas, tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, sour cream, salsa…

They were so yummy that I forget to take a picture!
