How To Make Slow Cooker Shredded Beef Tacos
These beef tacos are made of beef that’s slow-cooked and shredded and served with avocados, lettuce, tomatoes, and loads of shredded cheese.
Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Dab both sides of beef dry with paper towels.
Season beef with salt and pepper and sear in pot for about 3 minutes on each side until browned on both sides.
Transfer beef to a 6 or 7 quart slow cooker. Pour beef broth over roast.
Sprinkle chili powder, cumin, onion and garlic powder evenly over roast. Cover slow cooker and cook on Low heat for 8 hours.
Remove roast from slow cooker, shred beef (remove fat) and return shredded beef to slow cooker (season with a little more salt if needed).
Add in lime juice, cover with lid and cook on low an additional 5 to 10 minutes while preparing toppings and tortillas.
Remove beef from slow cooker with tongs to remove juices when plating or drain in a colander.
Serve in warmed tortillas with desired toppings.
