Shredded Beef Tacos, Crockpot Style
"Fantastic! Substituted Sam Adams Light for the Negra Modelo. Fried the beef in a nonstick pan without oil. When the meat was browned on two sides (but before it was dried out), added some home made taco mix. Served it on corn tortillas with whole pinto beans, roasted tomato salsa, shredded cabbage, and a few scallions. Amazing!"- lyngomes
