Mexican Shredded Beef has the perfect flavor to enrich your burritos, tacos, enchiladas, and taco salads. Put it in the crock-pot the night before and it will be ready for your Mexican meal the next day.
Today is May 5. Cinco de Mayo. It is also Taco Tuesday, so basically it is eating Mexican Food all day kind of day. I actually love… love… love… Mexican food!! It is by far my favorite choice. In keeping with the celebrating of the Mexican traditional food I am sharing our favorite recipe for Mexican Shredded Beef. This is a great recipe that is easy, it takes 5 ingredients or less. It uses a crock-pot….so not as much work, and you can set it and forget it. This recipe is spiced with the just the right kick to make your Mexican meal stand out.
This is a chuck roast with spices and a beef Consommé. Do you know what that is??
Consomme is basically a clear soup made with concentrated stock. Like Beef stock or chicken stock. I bought the can from the grocery store. You can find it by all the soups. It is a stock that flavors your meat.
The beef consomme makes the roast tender and spicy.
Here is the recipe…
- 1 (3 pound) chuck roast
- 1 ( 10.5 ounce) can beef consommé
- 2 Tbsp. chili powder
- 1 tsp. ground cumin
- 3 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
- Put all ingredients in a crock pot. Cook on low for 10-12 hours, or on high 6-8 hours until the meats shreds easily with a fork.

This makes a great meal… but it also makes great leftovers. Save it for another meal later in the week. If you can’t get around to using it, freeze it.
You can use this Mexican Shredded Beef for Tacos, Burritos, Enchiladas, Nachos, Taco Salad (my favorite)… you really could just eat it by itself with some Spanish Rice. Yes… it is versatile like that.
Hope your May 5th (Cinco de Mayo) is filled with lots of yumminess and great Mexican recipes. Our dinner tonight… will consist of Mexican Beef Shredded tacos. What will you be eating??
