Slow Cooker Barbacoa Beef Bites

February 25,2015

You'll need less liquid in the slow cooker than in a covered pot in the oven - the juice of two oranges (which was what I had) worked for me in the slow cooker.Adapted fromThe Roundup- the app guide to buying and cooking Canadian beef.

  • Makes:Serves 4-6.


canola oil,for cooking

1 lb.simmering steak,such as blade,cross rib,or stewing beef

salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/2-3/4 cup orange juice

3 Tbsp.ketchup

3 sauce

1-2 Tbsp.grated ginger

1-2 garlic cloves,crushed

pinch dried red chilis

1 tsp.cornstarch (optional - I didn't need it)


1Set a large,heavy skillet over medium-high heat.Add the oil and when it's hot,add the beef,sprinkling it with salt and pepper in the pan.Turn to brown on all sides - you just want to get some colour - then transfer to a braising dish or slow cooker.

2Pour the orange juice into the pan and stir to scrape up any browned bits - pour over the meat.Add the ketchup,soy sauce,ginger,garlic and chili,stir to combine,cover and braise in the oven at 300F for 2 1/2-3 hours,or cook on low in the slow cooker for 6-8 hours.

3If it's too saucy and you'd like to thicken it up,stir the cornstarch into 1 Tbsp.cold water,add to the meat mixture and bring to a simmer until it thickens.否则按原样把它,with flour or corn tortillas,chopped purple or green onion,and fresh cilantro for serving.
