Crockpot Beef Barbacoa

By the time I am done writing this blog post, I know I am going to be hungry! This crockpot beef barbacoa recipe makes such a perfect dinner! If you haven't tried beef barbacoa yet, you should definitely add it to your list of delicious meals to try! Beef barbacoa is a chuck roast, that is seasoned with a blend of oregano, cumin, paprika, and pepper, then slow cooked with whole chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, broth, garlic, onions, and lime juice. Talk about a whole lot of flavors! 
Also, just so you know, the leftovers from this dinner makes AMAZING tacos!
Let's get to cooking!

Crockpot Beef Barbacoa
  • 5 lb chuck roast
  • Seasoning blend (2 tsp oregano, 2 tsp cumin, 1 tsp paprika, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, and salt, to taste)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 3 shallots, minced
  • 3-4 whole chipolte peppers, in adobo sauce
  • Juice of 4 limes
  • 1 cup beef broth
Pat chuck roast dry with paper towels. Season with seasoning blend. 

Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add chuck roast, and sear on all sides for about 1-2 minutes. Once the beef is done searing, place into your crockpot.

Top seared beef with chipotle peppers, lime juice, garlic, shallots, and beef broth. Cover and let cook for 6 hours on high heat. Serve over rice, or by itself! Enjoy!
