My favorite recipe for burrito meat. From the cookbook "Don't Panic-Dinner's in the Freezer". If you have a large crockpot, you can double or triple the recipe and freeze the meat for later. The recipe calls for vegetable oil, but I never add it. It's very easy to make, no browning required.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place beef in Crockpot. Add remaining ingredients and enough water to barely cover roast. Cover. Cook on low 6-8 hours until beef is tender. Remove and shred, using 2 forks to pull apart. Return meat to Crockpot and stir to combine meat and liquid.
  2. Serve as a filling for tacos, burritos, chalupas. Serve with cheese, guacamole, sour cream, lettuce, etc.

I Love Love Love this recipe! Instead of the water I used beef stock and then added on about 10 slices of jalapenos. Delish! I also do this as OAMC....I put all ingrdients into a large freezer bag and seal it. Then thaw and dump in the crockpot. I skip the browning step and it turns out great!

This recipe was awesome! I love the tangy sweetness in it from the brown sugar. I made it last night and ate like three tacos. :) Thanks for the great recipe.
