Barbacoa traces back to Barbados where it was cooked outside, BBQ style. Traditionally, that’s what barbacoa means. In Mexico, beef barbacoa has historically been enjoyed on Sundays. As it became a popular favorite, different regions put their own, inventive spin on it. For the best, most flavorful, most shreddable results, cook barbacoa in a slow cooker or an instant pressure cooker—not on the stove top or oven. Top your beef barbacoa tacos with cilantro, fresh lime, and salsa verde.
