This is a great slow cooker taco beef recipe - that you can have as a basic midweek family meals or include optional fillings to make the Taco's a bit special for a dinner party. Reduce the amount of Chipotle paste in the mixture for a milder / kid friendly flavor by 1 tsp.

Method

  • STEP 1
    Cut the brisket joint into approximately six to eight large chunks. Season well with salt and pepper on all sides. Heat oil in a large skillet and sear the beef chunks (in batches if necessary) on all sides until browned. Transfer seared meat to slow cooker.
  • STEP 2
    In a medium bowl combine chopped chipotles, garlic, cumin, oregano, cloves, beef broth, vinegar, lime juice, and additional salt and pepper (to taste). Mix well, then pour over beef in the slow cooker and add bay leaves. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours, until meat shreds easily.
  • STEP 3
    Remove bay leaves. Remove and shred beef. Return beef to slow cooker to marinate at least 10 more minutes, or until ready to serve in the tortillas.
