Barbacoa Beef

So, I'm not a huge fan of meat.  But, I do like me some shredded beef every now and then.  I especially love Chipotle, yum!  This recipe is pretty yum, too ;)

Adapted from Skinny Taste

  • 3 lbs beef chuck roast
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1/4 c. salsa
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 1 medium lime, juice
  • 2 chipotles in adobo sauce (or to taste)
  • 1 t. adobo sauce
  • 1 T. ground cumin
  • 1 T. ground oregano
  • 1/2 t. ground cloves
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 2 T. brown sugar/honey
  • 3 bay leaves OR 3/4 t. thyme
  1. Trim meat of fat, then cut into 4 inch chunks.
  2. Heat skillet over medium-high heat.  Add a little oil and sear/brown meat on all sides.  Place meat in crock pot.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients in a blender (except bay leaves); blend until smooth.
  4. Pour sauce over meat and add bay leaves.  Turn crock pot on low and cook for 6-8 hours.
  5. Shred beef and allow to simmer in juices, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
  6. Serve with pico de gaillo, guacamole, roasted corn, and sauteed onions & green peppers.
Brad likes to eat his barbacoa as a salad.  I like mine in some corn tortillas.  Either way, it's darn tasty!  *B
