How to Make Barbacoa

How to Make Barbacoa :
I love eating barbacoa with my tacos, burritos, and even in my quesadillas! Enjoy my recipe on how to make barbacoa.


Ingredients :
-7-8 lbs boneless chuck roast (trim fat and cut into 2-4 inches each)
-5-6 chipotles in adobo sauce (6 tends to be spicier for some, so maybe opt for 4-5)- cut up into small pieces.
-1 large white onion (grated)
-10 cloves of garlic- minced
-1/4 cup lime juice
-2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
-1 cup beef/chicken broth
-2 tbsp Cumin
-2 tbs Oregano
-1/2 tsp ground cloves
-1 tsp black pepper
-2 tsp kosher salt
-3 bay leaves
-Oil to pan sear chuck roast

Directions :
1. Cut up chuck roast to 2-4 inch cubes and trim any excess fat. Some people like the fat, so how much you trim is up to you.
2. Oil a pan and sear the majority sides of all pieces of roast. Set into crock pot.
3. In a large bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients (except for the bay leaves) and stir well. You may optionally blend all ingredients (except the bay leaves) until smooth. If blending, you do not have to grate the onions. You may cut them into small pieces, then toss into the blender.
4. Pour sauce over chuck roast in the crockpot. Place bay leaves on top and set crock pot to high for 4 hours, or low for 8 hours.
5. Once ready, take out the chuck meat and shred with a fork. Discard the bay leaves, and place the chuck meat back into the crockpot. Leave crock pot on warm, and serve when ready by removing desired amounts of beef as needed.
