Barbacoa Beef

  • 3 lbs beef eye of round or bottom round roast, all fat trimmed - i used a chuck roast
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 1/2 lime, juice
  • 2-4 chiptoles in adobo sauce (to taste) - be careful as these are spicy, 2 would be good for those not really into spicy food - you get these in the hispanic aisle at the grocery store.
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp ground oregano
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 cup water
1. Place garlic, onion, lime juice, cumin, oregano, chiptoles, cloves in a food processor.
2. Trim all fat off meat, cut into 4 inch chunks. Season with salt and pepper and brownon high heat in 1 tsp oil.
3. Place browned meat in crock pot, cover with food processed spices, water, and 3 bay leafs.  Cook on low for 8 hours or longer (mine cooked for like 12)

You can eat this over rice, over a salad, or in a taco.  All are good.
