Slow Cooker Chipotle Shredded Beef
This Slow Cooker Chipotle Shredded Beef recipe has been updated, re-photographed, and Instant Pot adaptation has been added to the recipe!
This recipe was posted on my blog almost exactly a year ago, but I decided to bring it back up to the front because a) I have a photo of it now and b) this beef is seriously so good.
I made a huge (triple) batch of it Valentine’s Day weekend because had a lot of family in town for my daughter’s baby blessing. I think that having too much food leftover is much better than running out during dinner, but that means I usually have lots of food leftover.
The last time I made this we used the leftovers in some nachos and it was fantastic. This time I tried to get more creative and I made a soup out of some of the leftover beef. Whoa. That turned out so well that it gets its own post shortly. We don’t usually eat a lot of red meat, but I could seriously eat this stuff daily. Especially since it gets better after a day or two.
I love batch cooking in my slow cooker or Instant Pot so much that I added a few dozen pulled pork, chicken, and beef recipes to my cookbooks — The Big Book of Paleo Slow Cooking and The Big Book of Paleo Pressure Cooking (Instant Pot!). So many great ones in there — I think the Peperoncini Beef is my all-time favorite though.
I do have more shredded meat recipes on my site, though!
