For the Shredded Beef:

  • 2 lbs beef chuck roast
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

For Serving:

  • Corn or flour tortillas
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Sliced avocado
  • Shredded cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Lime wedges


  1. Brown the Beef (Optional):
    • Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Season the beef chuck roast with salt and pepper, then brown it on all sides in the hot skillet. This step is optional but can add extra flavor to the meat.
  2. Prepare the Crockpot:
    • Place the chopped onion and minced garlic in the bottom of the crockpot.
  3. Add Ingredients to Crockpot:
    • Place the browned beef chuck roast or raw roast (if not browning) on top of the onions and garlic in the crockpot.
    • Add the diced tomatoes (with their juices), tomato paste, chili powder, ground cumin, paprika, dried oregano, salt, pepper, and beef broth to the crockpot.
  4. Cook the Beef:
    • Cover the crockpot with the lid and cook on low heat for 6-8 hours or until the beef is very tender and easily shreds with a fork.
  5. Shred the Beef:
    • Once the beef is cooked and tender, remove it from the crockpot and shred it using two forks. Remove any excess fat if desired.
  6. Prepare Toppings:
    • While the beef is resting, prepare your taco toppings such as shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sliced avocado, shredded cheese, sour cream, fresh cilantro, and lime wedges.
  7. Assemble Tacos:
    • Warm the tortillas either in a dry skillet or in the microwave.
    • Fill each tortilla with the shredded beef and desired toppings.
  8. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Serve the crockpot shredded beef tacos hot with your favorite toppings and a squeeze of fresh lime juice for added flavor.

These crockpot shredded beef tacos are perfect for a delicious and satisfying meal that’s easy to prepare. The slow cooking process allows the beef to become tender and infused with flavorful spices, making every bite a delight. Enjoy your homemade tacos with family and friends!
