Tex-Mex Shredded Beef Sandwiches

Total Time

Prep: 5 min. Cook: 8 hours


8 servings

Slow cooker meals, like this shredded beef sandwich, are my favorite kind. After I get a few ingredients into the slow cooker, I can do my own thing. Plus, I have a hearty, satisfying meal when I come home! —Kathy White, Henderson, Nevada

    This was really good and very easy to put together. I added some bbq sauce to the sandwich since the slow cooker thins the sauce out so much. I would probably add a bit of heat next time, but that's just my preference. Great recipe overall.

    Awesome!!! and kid friendly! i like a little extra BBQ sauce, but overall great. I was looking for a recipe other than beef stew for my chuck steak. I saw this recipe and i was happy to see that Kathy White was from Henderson, NV. I am from Las Vegas, NV. And i figured why not try it, i am glad i did. Thanks

    Very tender meat. Easy to make, but not super flavorful. Will make up my own spice blend next time.

    This is fantastic! I don't buy packaged chili seasoning so I just used what I normally put in my chili. It's great on sandwiches, burritos and I may even try it as a hash with potatoes and eggs.

    The whole family loved it. Doubled everything and gave some to another family. They requested the recipe. I made coleslaw to serve on the bun with it. Delicious!
