Ready in 4 hours 30 minutes
Heat the olive oil in a heavy-bottomed pot or dutch oven over medium heat.
Add the garlic and onions and saute until onions are translucent.
Sprinkle the salt and pepper on both sides of the beef.
Place the chuck in the pot and let it sear for 3 minutes until a crust has formed.
Flip the chuck and sear the second side for an additional 3 minutes. until nice and brown, almost burned but not.
Transfer the seared beef, along with the sauteed onions and garlic, to a crock pot.
Add the cumin, ancho chile powder, bay leaves and Negro Model beer to the crock pot.
Simmer the ingredients on low heat for at least four hours, or until the meat is fork tender and easily shredded.
Shred the cooked meat and place it in a hot skillet (oiled lightly), with salt and pepper and a little chopped onion. Cook until crispy on one side, don't let it dry out, and assemble a taco by placing a portion of the shredded beef on a corn tortilla, topping it with the sharp white cheddar and fresh cilantro.
Makes 4 servings.

Januaryleidig 3y agoI used beef broth and it came out just as good as everyone says. It was easy to make and made enough for leftovers :)
bstrong2 3y agoFinally! I found a good recipe for shredded beef taco's. It was awesome. I was worried it was going to be to spicy but the meat was perfect. We put black beans, sriracha and guacamole on our taco's and it was sooo yummy!
