Tonight’s Dinner – Barbacoa Mexicana in the Crockpot

Quick post…

Saturday night we went to a local restaurant, Pepe Delgado’s, and the special was Barbacoa Mexicana.  I had never had it and was in the process of ordering off the regular menu when I saw a waiter walk by with a plate.  It looked delicious.  The cashier confirmed that it was the special, so I got that.  It was great, so of course I had to find a way to make it myself.  Also, for those of you that are Paleo, it looked like it would fit the bill.  Vegetarians, sorry, not for you.  😦

Found crockpot recipes at http://www.grouprecipes.com/77444/slow-cooker-barbacoa-shredded-beef.html and http://www.dadcooksdinner.com/2009/03/slow-cooker-beef-barbacoa.html and kind of combined them. So, I will let you know how it turned out tomorrow.  In the meantime, here is a picture from when I had just assembled it in the crockpot this morning…
