My kids loved this beef, I made tacos and they inhaled them! I added a whole can of Chipotle and pickled onions to balance out the flavors. I'm off for the summer so I let the meat go low n slow in the oven from frozen stew meat. This is gonna make Great Machaca to tomorrow morning for sure! Thank you Karie, you have a winner here!

Made this recipe twice and both times it was great. I used bottom round the second time and it pulled much easier. Nice and spicy and a great easy grab and go part of most meals!
