Beef Barbacoa Slow Cooker Recipe  tacos

I made one of those random purchases this week and bought another crock pot.  I have one, but the handle has been broken for like a year now.  As Target usually does, I went in for one thing and came out with a crock pot.  Random, I know but with fall officially here  I felt a crock pot was a justified buy.

We had a family tradition growing up, Sunday morning my dad would leave home for the Sunday newspapar and a half pound of barbacoa de lengua.  We would wake up to one of my favorite breakfasts.  Enjoying the real deal barbacoa these days means I have to drive an hour away to my parents or make it myself.

What’s a girl to do when she wants some comfort food for breakfast?  Obviously make it herself.  Now if you didn’t grow up around barabacoa de lengua (beef tongue) this may seem über gross to you.  But, believe me it is DELISH and once you get past that it was a tongue you are in for a major treat.  It is better than the tenderest shredded piece of bbq brisket you could eat.

Beef Barbacoa Slow Cooker Recipe

 Place the beef tongue in the slow cooker with a 1/3 Cup of water.  Sprinkle salt, pepper and garlic powder over tongue.  Cover and place on low overnight for a minimum of 8 hours.  I left mine in the slow cooker on low for 9 hours.

 Remove skin from the entire tongue.  It will peel away extremely easy, just make sure to get the underside skin too.  If yours has chunky pieces of fat you can remove that too, it should literally fall off with a fork.

 Discard skin, easy enough.  Drain most of the liquid, leaving a few tablespoons.

  1. Thank goodness I found this post!!! I have been searching for a simple traditional barbacoa recipe and of course everything adds a ton of unnecessary ingredients! Cannot wait to make this!! Thank you!!!

  2. You can add 2 or 3 bay leaf (LAUREL IN SPANISH) it gives a really nice tast.. This is how we do it in Mexico

  3. “I like the helpful information you provide in your articles. I’ll bookmark your blog and check again here frequently. I am quite certain I will learn plenty of new stuff right here! Good luck for the next!”

  4. Hello there friend! Youre so cool! I dont suppose Ive read anything like this before. So nice to find somebody with some original thoughts on this subject. realy thank you for starting this up. this website is something that is needed on the web, someone with a little originality. useful job for bringing something new to the internet! Again thanks alot for this!

  5. I have learned some new things by your blog. One other thing I’d prefer to say is that often newer pc os’s usually allow more memory to be used, but they also demand more ram simply to perform. If your computer is unable to handle more memory and also the newest software program requires that ram increase, it might be the time to buy a new PC. Thanks

  6. Thanks for the recommendations you have discussed here. Something important I would like to state is that laptop or computer memory demands generally increase along with other advances in the technology. For instance, when new generations of cpus are brought to the market, there’s usually an equivalent increase in the size demands of both computer memory as well as hard drive room. This is because the software operated by way of these processors will inevitably increase in power to make use of the new technological innovation.

  7. What I have seen in terms of pc memory is there are technical specs such as SDRAM, DDR etc, that must fit in with the specs of the motherboard. If the personal computer’s motherboard is pretty current while there are no computer OS issues, changing the memory space literally normally requires under a couple of hours. It’s one of many easiest laptop or computer upgrade methods one can visualize. Thanks for expressing your ideas.
