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.

Nothing too spectacular.

Such a welcome change from plain old tacos! I forgot the salsa both times I've made this and it's still delicious. Served in tortillas or hard shells with cheddar cheese, rice and sour cream. We are salt sensitive and only used 1 beef bullion cube.

Very Good. Ate on flour tortillas, think I will make taquitos with this next time...
