This recipe is great for all kinds of shredded beef. Take advantage of sales (Buy 1 Get 1 Free) and cook up some extra to store in your freezer for future meals. For plain shredded beef, omit the taco seasoning. You can replace it with a packet of onion soup mix, if you like.
Shredded Beef Tacos
3-5 pounds chuck roast (you can use 2 small roasts or 1 big one)
1 packet taco seasoning
1 can beef broth
Preheat crock pot on LOW. Pour beef broth into preheating crock pot.
Sear roast on all sides & place in crock pot.
Sprinkle roast with taco seasonings - use it all! Slice onion & place on top of roast.
Cook in crock pot for 8 hours on LOW.
Remove roast from crock pot & place on cutting board. Using 2 forks, pull meat apart until shredded. Remove fat & grisle and throw it away.
This meat freezes well & is great to use in casseroles or more tacos later. Enjoy!
