AMAZING and tender beef barbacoa made with chipotle peppers, green chilies, citrus juice, beef broth and spices. The flavor is amazing and it slow cooks to perfection! Served in burritos loaded with sautéed peppers & onions, Spanish rice and pico de gallo.
One of our healthy go to meals when we are on the go are beef barbacoa burritos, it’s one of my husband’s favorites so I decided to make this at home for him, who knew he would love my recipe more than the restaurants!
Barbacoa is simply a way of cooking meat, usually barbecued or slow cooked until tender and shredded. Beef Barbacoa is beef that is barbecued or slow cooked until it pulls apart & extremely tender.
There is just something about tender juicy meat that has been slow cooked all day and just falls apart –its so delicious and incredibly easy to make. We are very particular when it comes to eating beef, it can’t be dry or chewy which is why we went with a sirloin roast that had very little fat and just made eating the burritos that much better!
The beef shredded so easily and the flavours just make your mouth water!
Were just two people in our house so making this much beef might seem like a waste but trust me you won’t have much left over. We are not one of those people who skimp out on the meat when it comes to filling up our burrito, so load up on the meat and veggies and only use a small amount of rice as a filler and to absorb a bit of the meat juices.
My husband could not stop eating the beef on its own but he left me just enough meat to meal prep some lunches for the week. Another reason why we love this recipe so much, it was so easy to make because the slow cooker does all the work and you can easily cook extra rice, veggies and fixings to plan out your meals or lunches for the week.
