Lazy Beef Barbacoa
Easy, delicious and tender shredded beef with a great barbacoa flavor
- 2 lb roast
- 2 tablespoon chopped fresh garlic
- 2 teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- ¼ teaspoon Adobo seasoning (with Pepper)
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (more if you want it spicier)
- 2 bay leaves
- ¼ cup orange juice
- ¼ cup diet coke (or regular if you prefer)
Place meat in pot. I suggest using a slow cooker liner for easy clean up
Mix orange juice and Diet Coke. Pour mixture over meat.
Mix all dry ingredients with the fresh minced or chopped garlic to form a chunky paste.
Spoon paste over meat
Cover and cook on low for 10-12 hours.
Remove meat from pan and shred. I generally just use two forks for this process although a potato masher or hand held mixer would do that just as well.
Returned shredded beef to pot to mix with juices and flavoring before serving.
