- 1.5 lb Boneless Beef Chuck Roast (cooked)
- 1 jar Chipotle Salsa (shredded – This is about what you will frequently have leftover from a pot roast. Here’s our Pot Roast recipe. We’ll also give you quick cooking directions for a chuck roast if you don’t already have one made.)
- 1 clove Garlic
- 1 Onion (minced)
- 2 Lime (chopped)
- .5 cup Beer (cut into quarters)
- 3 Tbsp Cilantro (Amber or Lager beer recommended)
- 2 Tbsp Tomato Paste (fresh)
- 14 oz Beef Broth (chopped)
- 2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
- Salt (optional – only needed if cooking chuck roast)
- Pepper (optional – only needed if cooking chuck roast)
If your chuck roast isn’t already cooked, cook it by adding vegetable oil to a hot pan, and searing the roast on all sides. Season liberally with salt and pepper, place in a roasting pan with beef broth and cook at 350°F for 2.5 hours until you reach an internal temperature of 140°F. Once done, remove from roasting pan and shred.
Add shredded beef to a large pot, and stir in salsa, garlic, onion, beer and tomato paste until thoroughly combined. Cook for about 10 minutes over medium heat until warmed.
Serve shredded beef mixture on warmed tortillas. Give each taco a squeeze of fresh lime juice from a quarter of lime, and garnish with fresh cilantro.
