I love Qdoba, and every time I go there, I get the beef on something – tacos, nachos, a burrito bowl, whatever.  I just want as much of it as I can get, but I reallllly don’t like paying their prices.  So, it inspired me to make some of my own shredded beef for taco night.  This recipe is so simple, and versatile, but best of all is the aroma that fills your house as the steak slowly cooks in a flavorful sauce.  

Crockpot Shredded Beef Tacos

1, 3lb london broil

1/2 red onion, thinly slices
2 tbsp olive oil
2 limes, juiced
1 tbsp (2 cloves) garlic, minced

I didn’t have room in my fridge for the crockpot base, so I marinated my steak in a casserole dish – do this if you want to grill your meat for tacos!

Cook on low for 8 hours.

Not too pretty yet – but boy oh boy is it delicious! You’ll catch yourself stealing a few bites while you shred the meat!

Shred beef with two forks right in the crock pot – it should just fall apart.  If you don’t want the veggies in your tacos, use tongs, and remove them now before shredding the beef.
