Beef Barbacoa Tacos

This past weekend the Latin Community celebrated Cinco de Mayo.....I just celebrated the excuse to eat mexican inspired food because it is just so darn delicious!!!

This dish is super easy to make since it involves your trusty slow cooker. Just throw in your meat and ingredients and let it do its thing!!

The night before place a 5 lb eye of round beef roast in your slow cooker with the following: 1 whole head of Garlic peeled and smashed, 3 Bay Leaves, 1 cup roughly chopped Cilantro, 2-4 Chilpotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce, left whole, 1 Large Sweet Onion Chopped, 1/2 Tsp ground Cloves, 1 Tbsp Salt, Juice of 4 Limes, 1/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinagar, 1 Tsp White Pepper, 4 Cups Beef Stock. Mix everything together very well and turn the slow cooker on low for 8-10 hours (or while you sleep!)

 In the morning your beef will be so tender it will just fall apart! At this point I removed the bay leaves and the chipotle peppers, shredded the meat and placed the whole thing in the fridge until dinner.
 When you are about 1 hour out from dinner place the slow cooker back on high for about an hour to heat it back up.
 Serve on flour tortillas with your favourite salsa, or in my case..lots of fresh guacamole!
Hope you had a fabulous weekend!
