Servings: 6 tacos
- 4 pound beef chuck roast cut into 3-inch chunks
- 1 onion diced
- 3-4 chipotle in adobo sauce finely diced
- 5 garlic cloves minced
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon cumin
- 1/2 tablespoon dried oregano
- 2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 3/4 cup beef stock
- 3 bay leaves
- diced onion
- avocado slices
- chopped cilantro
- sour cream or cheese
Add all of the ingredients, except the bay leaves, to the bowl of a slow cooker.
Gently toss and mix it all together. Then add the bay leaves, and cover. Cook on low for 8-9 hours. The beef should be tender and fall apart easily when shredded with a fork. If it doesn't shred easily, cook it a bit longer.
Remove the beef and use forks to shred it on a cutting board.
Place the shredded beef back in the slow cooker, give it a stir, and let it soak up all the juices.
Use tongs to remove a serving from the slow cooker, top it on a tortilla, and garnish with diced onion, avocado, cilantro, and other toppings.
