Shredded Beef Tacos

shredded beef tacos for the crockpotAnother success for the crockpot, at least in my eyes. C would still prefer ground beef and a packet of taco seasoning, but it is well established that he knows nothing about good food. I made up this one on my own and I was very impressed with the results. It is sort of a combination of Crockpot Chicken Tacos and Crockpot Pork Carnitas.  The meat is so tender, it shreds so easily. Of course it helped that I had leftover creamy jalapeno from Chuy's to top the tacos with, that stuff is so addictive.  I used a Coors Light, because it was what was down in our fridge and I know I won't drink it, but any light beer would work great.
Shredded Beef Tacos for the Crockpot

1 ½ pounds beef roast
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ onion, chopped
½ jalapeno, seeded and minced
1 can of beer
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper

Combine all ingredients in a crockpot. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. Shred the meat, return to the crockpot and cook for 20 minutes more. Serve on tortillas with Colby jack cheese, salsa, creamy jalapeno and fresh cilantro.

Great idea. I've never tried beef tacos in my crock pot. It sounds delicious and so easy to make too!
