  1. Whisk together vegetable oil, vinegar, lime juice, cumin, chili powder, and garlic in a bowl and pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add the sliced beef, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Bring beef to room temperature, about 20 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Transfer beef and lime juice marinade to a large baking dish. Add beef stock and cover baking dish with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until beef is very tender, about 2 1/2 hours. Allow meat to rest for 10 minutes before shredding with 2 forks. Drain and discard about 80% of liquid from meat and season with salt before serving.

  • The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the marinade ingredients. The actual amount of the marinade consumed will vary.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Absolutely excellent! So tender and the favor was perfect! I only had time to marinate for an hour, and it still turned out great.

Wow! After making this recipe I will never go back to ground beef tacos again! The meat came out so tender and moist and the flavor was excellent. I marinated it overnight following the marinade...

This was so easy! It was tender and flavorful. My husband said it needed nothing but cheese!

My sons favorite meal is tacos so he was hesitant, but I make this in my crockpot. Wrap up the beef with marinade in foil, not necessary to marinate ahead, and put the whole thing in my crock....

Made this tonight, and the only thing my husband said once he cleaned his plate was, "Whatever you did to the meat, do it again." I'd say it was a success!

Tried these for the first time - so good - used Chipolte Chili powder and white wine vinegar... DELISH!

I HAVE to tell you... I made this today... as I do with most recipes, I changed it up... but just a bit... added twice the amt of lime and vinegar...added more of the spices...browned the 1 in c...

This was delicious! I did add a little more spices (garlic powder, cayenne, smoked paprika, oregano). My new favorite tacos!
