It’s so nice to throw 3 ingredients into a slow cooker and hit start. This is my kind of meal for a busy day when we want to eat at home but we don’t have a lot of time to cook.
Here are the ingredients for this slow cooker Mexican shredded beef recipe…you ready?
I do not brown or sear the roast first.
You can cook this on low for 7 to 8 hours for tender, flavorful shredded beef. I cooked mine on high for 4 hours but I think it’s more tender when I put it on earlier and cook it on low.You will know it’s ready when it falls apart, shreds easily, and reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees.
You can make tacos, burritos, or even burrito bowls. Our tip for the best burritos is to buy your tortillas raw. You can find these in the cold section of the grocery store, (usually somewhere by the canned biscuits), and cook them fresh right before you eat. They are the best!
Be sure and use a slotted spoon when serving because this beef is really juicy!
Leftovers are great for a quick lunch. Also, you can freeze some to reheat later. I hope you like it as much as we do!
