Slow-Cooked Shredded Beef Tacos
- 6 ounces beef shoulder
- 1 large tomato, roughly chopped
- 1/2 yellow onion, roughly chopped
- 1 clove garlic
- 3 cups beef broth
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne, to taste (optional)
- Pinch of coarse sea salt Pinch of black pepper
- Pinch of black pepper
- 4 corn tortillas
- 1/4 cup thinly sliced cabbage
- 1/4 cup mashed avocado
- 4 lime wedges
Combine the beef, tomato, onion, garlic, broth, vinegar, spices, salt, and pepper in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer, cover, and cook until so tender it can be pulled apart with a fork, about 2 hours 30 minutes, adding more broth as needed.
Uncover and cook until the remaining liquid reduces to form a thick sauce.
Pull the beef, still in the pot, into shreds using 2 forks.
Place one-fourth of shredded beef onto the center of each corn tortilla and top with 1 tablespoon cabbage, 1 tablespoon avocado, and a squeeze of lime.
