This was a super simple and delicious way to make shredded taco meat.
3-4 lb. chuck roast
2 T oil
fresh ground pepper
1/4 cup taco seasoning
2 T of Trader Joe's 21 Seasoning Salute
1/2 cup water
1 small diced onion or 1/2 a large onion
Heat oil in large skillet over medium to medium high heat until glistening. Sprinkle garlic powder, salt and pepper generously on both sides of roast. Brown and sear all sides of the roast (a couple of minutes on each side).
Transfer roast to crockpot. Sprinkle on onion, taco seasoning, 21 Seasoning Salute, and water. Cover and cook on low 8-9 hours or high for 5-6 hours.
Shred apart, and remove any fat. Serve with your favorite taco toppings. We like black beans, guacamole, spinach, tomato, sour cream, and queso fresco.
