Crock-pot Shredded Beef Tacos


Tonight we enjoyed Shredded Beef Tacos….good bye ground beef!

There is a very special sauce that goes on the bottom of the flour/corn tortillas that makes this just burst with flavor.   Here’s what I did to make this delicious meal!

For the Shredded Beef:

2 large onions, cut in quarters

3 cloves of garlic

1/4 cup water

1 beef roast (whatever is your favorite cut..)

1 can rotel

Put the onions, garlic and 1/4 cup water in the crock pot and then lay the meat on top.

Cover and cook on LOW for 8 – 10 hours or until the roast is tender.

Take the beef out and shred it.  Dump the crock pot drippings out and put the shredded beef back in the crock pot with the rotel; mix well.

Cover crock pot and cook until warmed.


Tortillas, either flour or corn

Shredded Cheese

Crumbed feta cheese  - gotta have it!

Chopped fresh cilantro

Diced Red Onion

Shredded lettuce

Anything else you love…avocados, tomatoes, etc


and now for the amazing sauce:


2 cloves garlic, minced

1 Tbsp. butter

1 cup mayonnaise

1/4 tsp. ground black pepper

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

SautĂ© garlic in butter over low heat until golden (about 5 minutes).   Add garlic/butter to 1 cup mayo and blend.  Add pepper and garlic powder.  Put on your Tortilla Shell first and LOVE IT!



Spread the Creamy Garlic Sauce on a hot tortilla, put some shredded beef in the tortilla and start adding your favorite toppings.
