Crock Pot Shredded Beef Tacos


crockpot-mexican-beef-tacos-LifeintheLofthouse   Today’s recipe has to be one of my favorites. These Shredded Beef Tacos are AMAZING! So flavorful, so delicious and made in the beloved crock pot. :)   

   As the beef slow cooked all day, my house smelled fantastic! I couldn’t wait for dinner because of that aroma teasing me all day! Once it was ready I was dying to dig in, but couldn’t, because of course I had to take pictures for the blog first. That is probably one of the hardest things (okay, not hardest) but most annoying things about being a food blogger. Ha! ;)  

 I couldn’t wait to come blog about this recipe. You guys will love it!

    I made these tonight and they are awesome! I had bought about 2.5 lbs of cubes of meat to make beef stew but I wasn’t in the mood for that today. I searched for shredded beef taco recipes for the slow cooker and came across yours. I had all of the ingredients in my pantry so just substituted my beef cubes for the pot roast. Super easy and Delish! Thanks you!

      Pam, I love that! It’s so nice to already have everything on hand when you’re in the mood to switch things up! :) Glad you enjoyed the tacos!

    Just made these and they smell delicious! I think I’ll only use 1/2 can of beef broth next time because I had so much of the liquid left over OR use a bigger roast and make more tacos!
