Easy Slow Cooker Taco Meat

Easy Slow Cooker Mexican Shredded Beef

Who doesn’t love shredded beef. This is the most flavorsome recipe I have found to date. Originally recipe calls for mince, however I like to use thick steaks of gravy beef which shred brilliantly after a day in the slow cooker.

Ingredients
  1. 1kg thick gravy beef steaks
  2. 4 tablespoons tomato paste
Spice Mix
  1. 1/4 to 1 tablespoon chilli powder (depending on individual tastes)
  2. 1 teaspoon cumin
  3. 1 teaspoon sea salt
  4. 1 teaspoon black pepper
  5. 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
  6. 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  7. 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  8. 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  9. 1/4 teaspoon paprika
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl combine all of the spices.
  2. Add the beef, tomato paste and spices in the slow cooker. Use a spoon to mix up the ingredients & rub all over the meat.
  3. Pour somewhere between 1/2 – 1 cup of water around the meat (not on it). You will have to just depending on the height & width of your slow cooker.
  4. Cook on low for at least 8 hours, or high for 4 hours.
  5. When you are ready to serve break up the meat using 2 forks.
Notes
  1. You could get a little more adventurous and add a can of tomatoes, or some kidney beans, cooked black beans or onions.
  2. If you are trying to loose body fat, serve beef in lettuce leafs instead of tortillas or taco shells. Add some chopped tomato, grated cheese or ricotta, spanish onion, guacamole or just avocado.
