boneless beef chuck roast
ground black pepper, or to taste
distilled white vinegar
1 (14 ounce) can
salt to taste
This turned out great, but I added a few ingredients to the sauce for added flavor; 1/4 cup of white vinegar, 1 chipolte pepper and a couple of dashes of hot pepper sauce. The flavor was fantastic and I would make this again!
This is nothing like authentic Barbacoa.
This was everything a slow cooker recipe is supposed to be: easy, not a lot of ingredients, and great outcome. Next time, I will probably brown the meat before adding to the slow cooker just to give it another layer of flavor. Great basic recipe that could easily be customized to be more spicy or more intense, depending on your flavor buds. This also would be a great dish to serve at a party - it appeals to many different palates. Thumbs up!
Slow clap. I used as a base, as i do most recpies I get. I love garlic, and spicy items. I modified it to fit my taste. I think without it it still would have been great. I love this and it showed me how to really cook the roast and have the true shred to the meat. Cant thank you enough. Exploding high 5.
Great recipe!!! I had to alter it to fit into a weeknight menu as most people are not home to stop the cooking process after 4 hours. So what I did was follow the direction my only change was cook my meat on low for 8 hours. After that I followed the directions and returned it back to the crock pot for 1 hour on high... I also added a good amount of garlic salt to the meat when it was cooking on high, it gave it such great flavor.. This is an amazing recipe and tastes so wonderful!!!! You will be so happy you made it!
This is not barbacoa. I mean at all. It tastes good, but more like a stew or weak bbq.
I followed all the instructions and after I tasted the paste I had second thoughts about putting it on the meat. I did not marinate, just added paste and covered the pan. My 12lb brisket was in the oven 5hrs and 40 mins. I discarded the juices and made tacos with corn tortillas, cilantro, tomatoe, Mexican crumbled cheese, chopped onion, lime juice and added homeade salsa! These were DELISHiOUS!! My Caucasian family loved them! Thanks a bunch for this great recipe! I will have pictures posted:)
This was very tender and moist. It was seasoned enough for our palates so I added additional garlic salt and some chipotle chili powder to liven it up a bit. We made burritos with it the first night, and used the leftovers in quesadillas! It's a great alternative to the standard pot roast! I'll definitely make it again!
