Shredded Beef for Tacos or Burritos

READY IN: 8hrs 10mins
Recipe by JenniferK2

We love tacos around here, so this is a favorite. I have used the meat to make burritos and enchiladas too. This recipe also works well with pork. The house smells so good when it is cooking! Leftovers freeze great too.

This was a huge hit at a Mexican dinner party I threw.i actually used stew beef, already cut into cubes but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Amazing flavor...I'm making this part of our regular dinner rotation.
