Barbacoa Beef

beef barbacoa

If you want to enjoy this beef barbacoa taco or burrito-style, grab some low-carb tortillas, sour cream, and guacamole and fill them with this flavorful shredded beef.

For even more flavor, top them with fresh lime juice and cilantro. If you don’t have a crockpot, you could also use an instant pot, dutch oven, or pressure cooker. 




  1. Preheat a large cast-iron skillet over high heat. Cut beef into 3” chunks.  Add oil to pan and sear meat on all sides. Transfer brisket to slow cooker.
  2. Add remaining ingredients to slow cooker.  Cook on LOW for 8 hours (HIGH for 6 hours).  When cooking time is complete, shred meat. Serve with cauliflower rice or on a bed of lettuce.
