Multi-purpose Mexican Shredded Beef

Excuse my absence from cooking for a long while my family and I unexpectedly had to put our beloved dog (Kianni) down about a week ago. She was a very sweet and special dog. It has been very sad for everyone in my family, but we’re thankful that she is no longer suffering. One of my fond memories of her is when she would clean up the food droppings I left on the floor. She was a great cooking sidekick. I am going to miss her so much!

Okay. Back to the recipe.

This all-purpose Slow Cooker Mexican Shredded Beef is perfect for fajitas, tacos, burritos and more!  Fast and easy prep work and your crock pot does the rest. It was delicious! I promise you and your family will not be disappointed.

Slow Cooker Mexican Shredded Beef

INGREDIENTS

3 pounds beef chuck roast

1 onion, diced

4 garlic cloves, minced

2 Tbsp. tomato paste

Juice of one lime (1-2 tablespoons)

1 Tbsp. chili powder

1 tsp. cumin

1 tsp. paprika

1 tsp. dried oregano

1 tsp. kosher salt, plus more to taste

1/4 tsp. red chili flakes

Directions

1. Combine together the chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt, oregano and red chili flakes, Set aside. Add the chopped onion and garlic to the slow cooker with the tomato paste, lime juice, and just 1-2 teaspoons of the spice mixture.  Stir everything together until fully mixed.

2. Sprinkle the rest of the spices all over the chuck roast, patting to help it stick to the meat.Place the meat on top of the onion mixture and set cook on low for seven- eight hours. Total cooking time will vary for different roasts. 

3. After meat has cooked, use two forks to shred the meat, removing any large pieces of fat or gristle as you find them.   (If the meat is still too tough to shred, it needs to be cooked a little longer.  Cook for an additional thirty-sixty minutes and check it again.)  Stir to mix well with the sauce.  Cover and continue to cook on low for another thirty-sixty minutes. Before serving stir well again to mix the meat with the sauce.  Taste meat and season with more salt to taste.
