Slow Cooker Barbacoa Beef Tender, flavorful, slow-cooked beef with onions, jalapenos, and spices make this the perfect barbacoa beef for burritos, tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, on a salad, or just on its own with a few side dishes.
Heat a skillet over high heat. Add some oil to coat the skillet. Place the roast on the skillet (carefully as oil can splatter when hot). Sear on both sides for about 2 minutes.
Place the beef roast, onion, chipotle chilies or jalapenos, chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper, and beef broth in a slow cooker.
Cook on low for about 8 hours or on high for about 5 hours or until tender. After the meat is tender, using two forks, shred the beef.
Use in tacos, enchiladas, burritos, tostadas, quesadillas, on salads, etc.
