Crockpot Barbacoa Beef

Crockpot Barbacoa Beef

I know several of you have been requesting more Crockpot dinners lately so I bring to you Crockpot Barbacoa Beef a copycat of the famous Chipotle's Restaurant.  Crockpot Barbacoa Beef is so simple to make and the perfect meal for feeding a crowed.
It's slowly braised in a mouthwatering combo of spices including chipotle peppers, cumin, oregano, apple cider vinegar, lime juice and a just a bit of cinnamon to leave the house smelling amazing. 
The long slow braise leaves the meat melt in your mouth tender.
I usually will brown the meat first for an extra punch of flavor but decided to skip the browning and opted for a simple throw together crockpot dish this time around.
I promise you won't miss browning the meat in this dish and neither will anyone else it's packed with flavor.
Crockpot Barbacoa Beef makes the perfect filling for burritos, tacos, taco salad or even enchiladas.

  4. Could you use this recipe using chicken or pork instead of beef?

    1. Hi, Pork would be amazing with this recipe and so would chicken. I would probably cook chicken a little less then I would simmer the beef or pork for texture reasons.

  5. I was just wondering how spicy this is. I like a bit of spice, but not too hot!

    1. It has some kick, but not so hot my kids couldn't enjoy it! Probably about as spicy as a mild-medium jalapeño.
