Barbacoa-Style Beef

A few years ago, my cousin was coming over and sent me a recipe and said, “Nuni, can you make this for me?” I did and the rest is history. I’ve made this several times since then and every time, it’s a hit.

So, everyone who knows my cooking style knows I hate to read recipes or follow videos. I typically just look at the ingredients of a recipe and find my way. May not be the best way to cook, but it’s gotten me this far, I guess.

Typical barbacoa recipes use adobo chipotle peppers but the first time I made this, I didn’t have it and didn’t have time to buy it so I replaced it with jalapenos and it turned out awesome.

This was the first time I made this recipe in an Instant Pot. I typically use the slow cooker for 8 hours. I would say it turned out delicious both ways!
