Chipotle's Inspired Crock Pot Barbacoa Beef

another staple (besides Cilantro Lime Rice) in my Chipotle burrito is their Barbacoa Beef.  it's a spicy shredded beef that they braise in magic. magic that i assume consists of chipotle adobe, cumin, cloves, garlic, onions & etc etc. 

sadly, the 1/2 cup or so serving that they allot you is not nearly enough.

& sadly again, daily Chipotle is not in the budget. but snagging a $10 rump roast from the grocery store & popping it in the crockpot is more than doable. 

Chipotle's Inspired Crock Pot Barbacoa Beef (adapted from skinny taste)
You Need:
3 lbs beef eye or round or rump round roast, fat trimmed
5 cloves of garlic
1/2 medium onion
1/2 lime, juiced
2-4 chipotles in adobe sauce (i used 2)
1 tblsp ground cumin
1 tblsp ground oregano
1/2 tsp ground cloves
salt & pepper
3 bay leaves
1 tsp olive oil
1 cup water

Directions: Place the garlic, onion, lime juice, cumin, oregano, chipotles & cloves in a food chopper (i used the mini Ninja chopper & it took like 10 seconds) or blender. Puree.

Trim all the fat off the beef & cut into 4 inch chunks. Rub with the olive oil & season with salt & pepper. Toss the beef into a crock pot along with the water, bay leaves & pureed spices. 

Cook on low for 8 hours. Once your beef is tender, remove it from the crock pot with a slotted spoon. Place it into a medium sized bowl & shred with 2 forks. Once shredded, put the beef into a small saucepan along with about 1 cup of the liquid from the crock pot. Add a little more cumin & adobe sauce (to taste) & simmer uncovered on low for about 10-15 minutes.

I served this over Cilantro Lime Rice & some sauteed corn. I also tossed on a handful of shredded cheese & a scoop of sour cream. crazy good.
