  • Summary

    Chipotle's famous barbacoa is the Mexican barbecue of my dreams. With this amazing copycat recipe (made in a crockpot) it can be a reality for you. Seared beef is slow cooked in a spectacular spicy adobo sauce and combination of flavors that create the perfect moist and tender Mexican shredded beef.

    Ingredients

    • 2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
    • 3-4 pound chuck roast, fat trimmed
    • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    • 2 bay leaves
    • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
    • 6 cloves garlic
    • 4 teaspoons ground cumin
    • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
    • 1 teaspoons ground black pepper
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground clove
    • 4 chipotle peppers (from a can, packed in adobo sauce)
    • 1 tablespoon adobo sauce (from the chipotle pepper can)
    • 1 cup chicken broth (or 1 cup water and 1 teaspoon chicken base)
    • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
