Beef Barbacoa

Beef Barbacoa

Where has Beef Barbacoa been all my life?

A couple of my Sunday Supper friends have showcased their versions of Beef Barbacoa recently. Spiced up, slow cooked beef in the crock pot sounded perfect for our dreadfully hot weather…and a nice change from my uninspired menus of late. After only a half hour in the slow cooker, I knew this dish would be a hit. The aroma in my kitchen was definitely tantalizing. I greeted Bill with, “You’re going to love dinner tonight, ” when he arrived home from work. I was overly anxious to dig in after being tempted all day long and so was he.
