Braised Mexican Spicy Barbacoa Beef Recipe

Makes 6 servings

Ingredients: 5 pounds (2.4 kg) beef chuck roast, salt, and freshly ground black pepper, to taste, 4 tablespoons (60 ml) olive oil, divided, 2 dried guajillo chiles, soaked, then stemmed and seeded, 2 dried ancho chiles, soaked, then stemmed and seeded, 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) each: cider vinegar and brown sugar, 1 teaspoon (5 ml) each salt and dried oregano, 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, 1/4 cup (60 ml) water

Instructions: In a medium bowl, combine dried chiles. Pour in enough water to cover them. Set aside and soak for 1-4 hours until softened.

Season beef chuck roast with salt and black pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large iron pot over high heat. Add seasoned beef chuck roast and sear on all sides, then remove from the heat and set aside.

In a blender, combine soaked peppers, minced garlic, cider vinegar, sugar, salt, oregano, cinnamon, remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, and water. Blend until smooth. Pour the sauce over the seared beef chuck roast in the pan.

Cover the pan with the lid and braise in a preheated (300º F (150º C)) oven for 3 hours, or until meat is cooked through and easily shreds with a fork.

Turn off the oven and remove the cooked chuck roast. Transfer on a cutting board. Using two forks, shred the meat. Serve spicy barbacoa beef on a warmed corn tortilla with sliced red onion, chopped cilantro, and jalapeño pepper.
