You're gonna love this delicious slow cooker carne asada style Mexican shredded beef, an easy, perfect filling for tacos, burritos, nachos, and enchiladas!
Heat a large skillet on medium-high heat (I lightly sprayed my skillet with non-stick spray before heating). Cook the stew meat cubes on all sides. This took about 10 minutes. If you need to, cook the beef in two batches, to not overcrowd the pan. Once beef is browned nicely, remove and transfer it to slow cooker.
Add 1/3 cup of water to skillet you cooked the beef in. Cook on medium heat for a couple minutes, to de-glaze the skillet. Be sure to scrape all the browned bits up off the bottom of the skillet into the water. It will make a thin flavor-filled sauce. Pour this over the meat in the slow cooker. Stir well to combine. Set aside.
Put lid on slow cooker, turn to the HIGH setting, and cook the meat for 4 hours, covered. After meat has fully cooked, remove lid. Shred the meat (it should shred VERY easily) using two forks to pull the meat apart. The meat is now ready to serve, and can be used for tacos, enchiladas, burritos, nachos, etc. Enjoy!!!
Caloric calculation is only for carne asada. Any other additions (tortillas, etc.) are not included.
