Authentic Barbacoa Tacos


Today, I’m sharing my Barbacoa recipe with you. It’s easy & simple, your crockpot will do all the work for you! (I have a Hamilton Beach Crockpot- you can check them out here.) When the meat is cooked it will literally be falling apart – so tender. Just use a couple of forks to shred it before putting it on your tortilla. Trim the fat from the meat before you cook it. It tends to be fatty, but that also gives it flavor. Barbacoa meat is a little sticky, due to some of the fat that is marbled in the meat. Perfectly normal-it’s supposed to be that way. The meat will practically melt in your mouth. Enjoy your Barbacoa Tacos.
