    duonyte's Note:

    From America's Test Kitchen's "Slow Cooker Revolution". An easy and tasty way to make shredded beef. This turned out a bit spicy for me, so you might want to adjust the amount of chili powder. I served some over mashed potatoes and some in warm flour tortillas. It would also make good enchilada or burrito filling.

    1. 1
      Microwave onions ,chili powder, oil, garlic, coriander, cumin, and cayenne in a bowl, stirring occasionally, until onions are softened, about 5 minutes; transfer to slow cooker. (You can do this the night before to make it easier to put together in the morning). (ATK used 6 qt cookers, I used a 5 qt and I think a 4 qt is large enough).
    2. 2
      Stir tomato sauce and sugar into slow cooker.
    3. 3
      Season beef with salt and pepper add to slow cooker and coat evenly with the sauce.
    4. 4
      Cover and cook on Low for 9 to 11 hours, or High for 5 to 7 hours.
    5. 5
      Transfer beef to a large bowl let cool slightly, then shred in bite-sized pieces, discarding excess fat; cover to keep warm.
    6. 6
      Let braising liquid settle and spoon off fat from surface with a large spoon.
    7. 7
      Toss shredded beef with 1 cup of the braising liquid, adding more liquid as necessary. Stir in the lime juice and season with additional salt and pepper.
    8. 8
      Refrigerate leftovers for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month.

      This dish was savory and spicy. The wonderful aroma coming from the kitchen made our mouths water all day. I served it over Spanish Rice. Our supper was delicious. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

      I made this from the cookbook and used it to make the Mexican Lasagna. After cooking on high in my slow cooker for about 6 hours, the beef shredded easily. The flavor was incredible and was a huge improvement from packaged taco seasonings. After seeing how easy this was to make, I plan to cook it again and freeze it in batches to have on hand for things like tacos, burritos, and enchiladas. We'll never go back to packaged taco seasoning!
