shredded beef tacos–or fuzzy’s tacos :)

i found this recipe in the dallas morning news a loooooong time ago….we have adapted it {of course} and now it has a life of its own….what i love about this recipe is that it is a crock pot recipe….so i can fix it and forget it:)

we have also found one of our favorite eating out places….fuzzy’s.  they have great queso and wonderful shredded beef tacos.  well. one day, we decided that we could recreate fuzzy’s tacos with our own shredded beef recipe.  the secret is the toppings on the taco…..

shredded beef tacos

  • 1 roast (i use whatever kind is on sale and big enough to feed the masses
  • 1 large onion, cut in quarters
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 jar salsa (we use Joe T. Garcia’s)
  • shredded cheese
  • crumbled feta cheese–THIS is the secret ingredient to copying fuzzy’s
  • chopped cilantro–this is the second secret ingredient
  • tortillas–either flour or corn (corn is our preference for this recipe)
  • thinly sliced purple onion
  • shredded lettuce
  • additional salsa–either jarred or homemade {see this post for my homemade version:)}
  • fuzzy’s style garlic sauce–recipe to follow:)

i put the onion, garlic and water in the crock pot and then lay the meat on top.  i cook on warm if we want it for dinner the next day….or low if we want it for lunch after church…..when the roast is tender, take it out and shred it.  dump the crock pot drippings out and put the roast back in with the jar of salsa.  mix well and cook until warmed.  meanwhile, i cook our corn tortillas in a skillet with a little olive oil.

to serve, we spread the garlic sauce on a hot tortilla and put the the meat in the tortilla and start adding your favorite toppings.

Creamy Garlic Sauce

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tb. butter
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder

Sauté garlic in butter over low heat until golden (about 5 minutes).  Add garlic/butter to 1 cup mayo and blend.  Add pepper and garlic powder.  Put on your taco first thing and enjoy!!!

so yummy!!!
