Shredded Beef Tacos

Taco lovers rejoice! These slow-cooker shredded beef tacos are an easy make ahead meal for any day of the week.  Pair it with your favourite toppings and you’ve got yourself a fiesta.


Do you ever feel like you can read your spouses mind? You spend most of your time with this person so it makes total sense!  When I gave the hubbs a list of upcoming recipe ideas and asked him what he would like me to make this weekend I knew his answer would be beef tacos.  He’s definitely a meat eater and loves beef (the other options may have had cauliflower or spaghetti squash…so I’m not surprised!)

To be honest, besides ground beef and hamburgers, I’m not a big red meat-eater. I’ve never even made a roast beef, but I sure know how to cook a mean steak for the hubbs 😀

I’ve been wanting to try this out in the slow cooker for a while and I figured one of the only ways I would eat roast beef is shredded in a taco!

I wanted to keep it low-carb and gluten-free so I made up a batch of Paleo Flatbread which turned out amazing! I halved the recipe and made smaller 4-5 inch tortillas with them.  They are soft and pliable just like regular tortillas and they hold all of the toppings – win, win!

Try this out for your next Taco Tuesday (or any day of the week!) Your family and friends will be in awe of your mad cooking skills.
