Event Services, What's Cooking?! Slow Cooker Barbacoa-Style Shredded Beef: version 2.0

Slow Cooker Barbacoa-Style Shredded Beef: version 2.0

Hi everyone. Because of all the great feedback from version 1.0, I decided to make this recipe again! But I didn’t have all the ingredients on hand that the original recipe calls for ... so I improvised.  I have made some changes to this and I think it’s better than the first one!  I didn’t have chuck roast (so expensive these days), so I used flank steak, which shreds better in my opinion. I didn’t have fresh lime, but had bottled lemon juice. I didn’t have any apple cider vinegar, so I used a half and half mixture of rice wine vinegar and red wine vinegar. I don’t really like cloves, so I left those out all together. I didn’t have chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, but I had dried chipotles. I also added onion and a step that will give more flavor to the dish. On top of it all, I also included a how-to video on how to shred your beef.
