Slow-Cooker Shredded Mexican Beef

Sure it takes a day to make the beef, but man is it ever worth it. The meat comes out unbelievably flavorful and tender and juice. It has a bit of a kick, but not so much that your I-don’t-like-heat friends won’t like it.

  • Combine all but the roast in a small bowl.
  • Rub the spice mixture over the roast, getting all sides.
  • Place roast into a slow cooker and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until fall-apart tender.
  • Remove roast (carefully, as it will tend to fall apart) to a cutting board and chop or shred as desired. Return to the slow cooker for serving.
  • Note: The meat gets even better the next day. I made this on a Sunday for several easy weekday meals.
