Oaxaca's Beef Barbacoa

Directions

  1. In a small bowl combine ground ancho chile pepper, salt, oregano, cumin, and black pepper. Sprinkle mixture evenly over all sides of beef brisket; rub in with your fingers. In a 3-1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker combine tomatoes, minced chile pepper, and garlic. Top with beef brisket, cutting to fit if needed.
  2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 9 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4-1/2 to 5 hours or until meat is tender. Remove meat from cooker. Using two forks, pull meat apart into shreds. Return meat to cooker; add lime juice. If using low-heat setting, turn cooker to high-heat setting. Cook for 15 to 30 minutes more or until heated through.
  3. Serve with tortillas, crema, and cilantro. If desired, serve with salsa.

From the Test Kitchen

For easy cleanup:

Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker. Once the food is out of your slow cooker liner, simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport liner with food inside.

*

Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
