This flavor-bomb Mexican shredded beef recipe is made right in the slow cooker for no-fuss, super tender beef that is ready whenever you are. Pair it with Mexican red rice and pepita salsa for an easy Mexican feast!
aka your new favorite meat aka IT'S ALMOST CINCO DE MAYO!
I have a few other new things on deck for you this holiday (deck = what Beck calls herself these days), but this is probably my favorite new Mexican-inspired dish this year. Mainly for the ease + big flavors it creates. Beer, tomato sauce, and tons of spices make the best drippings, and we toss them with the beef at the end once we shred it.
I also go against my own rule of SLOW COOKER MUST ONLY INCLUDE SLOW COOKER and sear this to almost burnt in a cast iron skillet. It's not always necessary, but for this application I do think it adds some great crusty bits to the finished shredded beef dish....
