Slow Cooker Barbacoa Beef is a tender Mexican shredded beef that you can use in shredded beef tacos, and beef rice bowls. This crock pot Barbacoa Beef is super flavorful and couldn't be easier to make!
Prepare all of your ingredients first. Cut the meat (brown it in a little oil if you wish), dice the onion, mince the garlic, measure the spices and liquids, etc.
Add the meat to the slow cooker and sprinkle the spices over it. Mix it well.
Add the remaining ingredients and stir.
Cook on Low for 8 hours or High for 4 hours, until meat is very tender. When done cooking, use a large spoon to skim off some of the fat before removing the meat.
Then use tongs to remove the meat to a bowl, and use two forks to shred it.
Place the shredded meat back into the crock and stir it well. Taste and adjust salt if needed.
Serve with warm tortillas and rice, chopped onion, cilantro, avocado, sour cream, or whatever you like!
