Slow Cooker Mexican Barbacoa Beef by The Greedy Fox
This is a simple slow cooker, beef Mexican recipe the whole family will enjoy. You can serve as a Barbacoa taco or a simple meal with rice. It is essentially a Mexican Shredded beef. This easy recipe is one of the reasons we love our slow cooker, beef cooked slowly remains juicy and melts in your mouth.
This is also a great recipe if you are having a BBQ, one of those meals you can pop in the slow cooker in the morning whilst your prepare for your party. Its is also a great leftover recipe, you can make tacos, add it to chilli, nachos or burritos.
In traditional Mexican culture this is cooked over a hole in the ground and its actually where the word BBQ came from!
