Description

Slow Cooker Mexican Shredded Beef is an amazingly easy and delicious dinner recipe to make on any day of the week. This tasty main dish is made with just a few basic ingredients that are combined together, set in the slow cooker, and left to simmer all day long until it's tender and full of flavor. 


Ingredients

Ingredients:

Non-stick cooking spray
2½ lbs. beef chuck roast
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
½ medium yellow onion, diced
1 medium jalapeno, thinly sliced
1½ t. ground cumin
1 t. garlic powder
½ t. smoked paprika
½ t. chipotle powder
1 t. dried Mexican oregano
1 10-oz. can tomatoes with green chilies
1 c. beef stock
1 T. fresh lime juice

To serve:
1/3 c. fresh cilantro, chopped
2 large limes, cut into 8 wedges each


Instructions

  1. Spray the bottom and sides of 6-quart slow-cooker crock with non-stick cooking spray.

  2. Generously season the beef with salt and pepper on all sides and place in slow cooker crock. Add all remaining ingredients, cover, and cook on low for 8 hours.

  3. When done cooking, remove lid and shred beef with two forks while still inside the slow cooker. Allow shredded beef to marinate in warm cooking juices for 5 minutes to absorb more flavor.

  4. Transfer shredded beef from slow cooker to a serving platter with tongs, allowing excess liquid to drain. Top with chopped cilantro and serve immediately with fresh lime wedges and additional cooking juices on the side, if desired. Enjoy!
