  • Yield: 8 servings 1x

Ingredients

  • 3 lb (1.4 kg) beef chuck roast, cut into large chunks
  • 1 (4 oz or 113 g) can of chopped green chilies (mild or hot)
  • 1/2 medium onion (1 oz or 55 g), peeled and sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) beef broth or bone broth
  • 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon (12 g) cumin powder
  • 1 Tablespoon (3 g) dried oregano
  • 2 bay leaves (optional)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • To serve: Large lettuce leaves, salsa, guacamole (optional)

Instructions

  1. Place all the ingredients into the slow cooker. Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on high for 4 to 6 hours and low for 8 to 10 hours until the beef is very tender.
  2. Remove bay leaves from the slow cooker and discard. Use 2 forks to shred the beef in the slow cooker and let rest for about 15 minutes to absorb the cooking liquids. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired.
  3. Serve the barbacoa by itself or in lettuce wraps and topped with salsa or guacamole.
