  • Cook: 8 hrs 5 mins


1 (3 pound) beef chuck roast, cut into 6 to 8 chunks

salt and ground black pepper to taste

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1/2 cup beef broth

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon dried oregano

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

3 bay leaves

Add all ingredients to list


1Season beef chunks with salt and pepper on all sides.

2Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef in batches; cook until browned, about 1 minute per side. Transfer beef to a slow cooker.

3Combine beef broth, apple cider vinegar, lime juice, chipotle peppers, garlic, cumin, oregano, and cloves in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix well. Pour over beef in the slow cooker. Stir in bay leaves.

4Cook on Low until beef is fork-tender, 8 to 10 hours.

5Discard bay leaves. Remove beef and shred using 2 forks. Return beef to the slow cooker to marinate in the sauce for at least 10 more minutes before serving.
