Recipe by PalatablePastime

This great shredded beef dish gets nicely tender from the long cooking and makes a great filling for tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and chimis. Cooks easily in your crockpot.

This was excellent, the flavor was wonderful. I liked it without the salsa. Very easy to make, too.
