Beef Brisket Tacos made in the slow cooker couldn’t be any easier or any more delicious! The meat is tender and full of amazing flavor. Just add your favorite taco toppings.
After being in constant use during my cookbook development months, my slow cooker was feeling a little lonely so I put her to use this week. I actually own four slow cookers so I try to rotate which one I am using so none of them feel too neglected. I get lots of messages asking which slow cooker I prefer and this is the slow cooker I own. (3 of them!)
This brisket works perfectly for tacos, burritos or just about anything. Remember those flautas I shared a few weeks ago? This beef brisket would be delicious in those too! And, it is delicious all by itself. It has just the right amount of flavor without being too spicy. I’m not a spicy kind of girl but I love a little bit of kick to my food. I used a jalapeno but you could always leave that out and cut down on the chili powder if you didn’t want any heat at all.
Just pop everything in the slow cooker and then let it cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-5 hours and you’ve got a delicious dinner. We love to use it in tacos and top them with a little pico, radish and fresh avocado on a corn tortilla. I used a brisket but I think a pot roast would work great too. I love making up a big batch of this meat and having it on hand for all kinds of different things throughout the week.
My favorite kitchen items I used to make SLOW COOKER BEEF BRISKET TACOS:
SLOW COOKER – My favorite one is the classic, the Rival CrockPot. In fact, I love it so much I own three of them. Two 6 qt and one 4 qt.
CROCK POT LINER BAGS – These liner bags are a life saver and make clean up so much easier and faster! Stock up on them!
SHREDDER CLAWS – These make shredded pork or chicken a breeze!
