Crockpot Barbacoa Beef

Crockpot Barbacoa Beef
I rarely cook with beef brisket, this recipe from The Kitchn reminds me that I should add it to my meal plan more often.  The meat is so tender and perfect for tacos.  Miss F kept referring to it as chicken, I have no clue why.  She requested "that chicken" in her lunch box quesadillas every day the week I made this.  I think we have beef so rarely, that she really doesn't know the taste as well as chicken, pork and seafood.  She is a Texas girl, so I need to get more beef in her diet.
Crockpot Barbacoa Beef

1 chipotle pepper with adobo, minced
½ red onion, peeled and chopped
3 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
½ teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 to 2 pounds beef brisket
1 ½ cups beef or chicken stock
1 bay leaf

To serve:
tortillas
diced onions
diced tomatoes
diced avocado
shredded colby jack
sour cream
salsa

Add the chipotle, onion, garlic, cumin, salt, lime juice, and vinegar to the crockpot Place the brisket on top of the mixture and pour the stock over top. Top with the bay leaf, toss to coat the meat. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. Remove the meat from the crockpot and shred with two forks, discarding excess fat. Return the beef to the crockpot, toss with the cooking liquid. Serve on tortillas with onions, tomatoes, avocado, cheese, sour cream and salsa.

Barbacoa is definitely one of the most tender and delicious meat dishes I've tasted, especially if it is slow-cooked. I just love your take on that classic dish, with tortillas. I'm definitely gonna try to re-create that. Thanks so much for sharing that amazing recipe! Happy cooking!
