Liked it: Slow Cooker Shredded Beef (Crockpot)

Need another slow cooker recipe for a roast? I have a great one! Slow cooker Shredded Beef is great for tacos, or on buns for sandwiches. It also freezes well for a quick dinner later if you have a lot of leftovers.

Slow Cooker Shredded Beef

About 4 lb roast (I used a chuck roast, trimmed well)

1 onion, chopped small

1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 Tbsp chili powder

1 tsp dried oregano

1-3 Tbsp water

Heat evoo in a skillet (I used a nonstick) and brown roast well on both sides while seasoning with salt and pepper. Place in slow cooker.

Add to slow cooker with the roast. Cook on low for 8-10 hours. Before serving, remove beef and shred with forks. Replace into juices and cook 30 min-1 hour longer. Serve on tortillas or buns, or use for beef filling for enchiladas, burritos or chimichangas.

I forgot to take a picture of the finished product! By the time my husband came home and we got everydone seated for dinner, all I cared about was getting the food on the table and those whining little mouths full of dinner 😉 We ate the shredded beef on homemade hamburger buns with barbeque sauce (Sweet Baby Ray’s to be exact), and it was soooooo goooooood.
