Beef Tacos

I know I probably get rather redundant in saying a lot of the recipes I post here are "the best"! Well, this one is certifiably, undeniabley, and truly THE BEST beef tacos you will ever make! They are amazing! The roast simmer all day long with the green chilies, onion, and spices and the flavors meld together perfectly. And then the salsa finishes it off so well. I posted this recipe a year or so ago and didn't have the picture--so here it is with a picture. We made these again this week and there were many ooohs and aaahs at how delicious, moist, and flavorful they are. My hubby says they even rival Cafe Rio's pork for those of you in the West (we aren't anymore and miss their pork so much).

Beef Tacos from Kristy C.

1 beef roast
1 onion
(2) 4oz cans diced green chilies
2 beef bouillion cubes
1 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

1 cup salsa

Cook on high for 5-6 hours in crock pot--adding all the ingredients but salsa. Take beef out of crockpot and shred. Reserve the liquid. Add enough liquid and the salsa for desired juiciness. Serve on tortillas with beans, lettuce, and any other things you like on tacos. They are extra moist...so have a napkin on hand :-).


Tips
: This also works great if you have a lot of roast leftover from a previous meal. Just add the already cooked roast and the ingredients in the crockpot and cook as described. It still turns out awesome! Also, make sure you use a quality, good salsa. I bought the cheapest stuff from the store one time and it altered the flavor quite a bit. It wasn't a salsa we would've liked plain and so it just didn't taste very good in it---this time I used our favorite salsa and it was HEAVEN!

These look yummy! I love how they have beef roast and not ground beef- that brings them up to a new level!

So what is your favorite salsa?

Hi! I had this amazing dandelion salsa that I got in Amish Country that I would horde and then use in these tacos years ago. But that salsa has long run out so I usually just end up using Pace or something like that in the tacos now. And it's still just as delicious.
