Easy, Shredded Taco Beef in the Slow Cooker

Chicken tacos are a staple in my house. It’s an easy go-to when I don’t know what else to make. One week when I told my husband I was going to make them – again – he asked me, “Why don’t you ever make beef tacos?” After that, it became my mission to figure out a great, equally-easy beef taco recipe. This is the winner.

    Hi,
    Just curious if your roast was frozen or thawed?

    Thanks, can’t wait to try this!!

  2. This sounds delish and easy. We love tacos! I make ground beef tacos at least once a week. I add a diced boiled potato to the ground beef after browning it. I always forget about shredded beef tacos but now they’re on the menu for this week!

  3. Mmmm, Tiffany, that sounds delicious! I think that’s what’s for dinner tomorrow!

    This is just like the “spicy beef” we make around here. Instead of the enchilada sauce and chilies, you pour a jar of giardiniera (whatever heat level you like) over the roast, and cook for the same amount of time. (I always use mild giardiniera. The heat seems to intensify from the long, slow cooking) Then, just like yours, shred it, and serve it on crusty bread rolls. It’ll be the best beef sandwich you’ve ever had!

    Since we don’t eat carbs in our house, we just eat it like it is, with a fork. =) It would probably be really good served over a bed of mashed potatoes, or even rice.

    Let me know if you ever try it.

      What is giardineira and where in the grocery shop so you find it? Is it very hot ( spicy)

      • Giardiniera is basically pickled vegetables. Often it’s made with cauliflower, carrots, celery, onion and peppers. There are both mild and spicy versions. If you make it at home you can control the heat level.
