Mexican Shredded Beef Tacos – chop up some onions, cover the chuck roast in barbacoa-type spices and throw it all in the slow cooker! This recipe is super easy. It takes about 5 minutes to prep & is whole 30 approved and paleo friendly to keep you on track!
I’ve been making this recipe about once a week and it really doesn’t get old. Even though the title of this post says ‘tacos’ there are a ton of options to eat this mexican shredded beef that don’t involve tortillas. Think: salads or bowls. Or pair with this Mexican cauliflower rice. And, if a tortillas are your thing, more power to you! Tortillas are delicious too!
Anyways, the only thing I can figure out about the word barbacoa is that it means (loosely translates to) barbecue. Anything barbecue is a delicious in my book. Right?
