So I love Mexican food, and one of my favorite thing is barbacoa which is mexican-style shredded beef that is slow cooked in spices and vegetables, it's perfect for taco, tamales, or just over rice with beans. So here is a recipe I learned from a good friend, it's super easy and fool proof.

Ingredients

  • 4-1/2 poundsboneless beef chuck roast

Place the roast, onion, bay leaves, black pepper, garlic powder, and vinegar in slow cooker; cover ingredients completely with water. Cover and cook on High setting until meat is very tender and falling apart, about 5-6 hours.

Remove meat from slow cooker and discard liquids. Return meat to slow cooker; shred with fork and knife. Stir tomato sauce, chili powder, and salt into the shredded meat. Cover the cooker, and cook meat and sauce on High for an additional 2 hours.

This keeping well, you can freeze leftover meat and reheat on stove or in microwave. Enjoy!

This sounds soooo good.

Could you use the stock (the part that says to discard the liquids) in other recupes? Like make a sauce or use as a base for soup? Just curious. It just sounds like a really good stock comes from the first part and I'd hate to think it couldn't be used in another way.
