    This is pretty good but to me it needs a little more seasonings..... will probably try again one day

    Love this and make it all the time!!! Super easy to make! I do more garlic, because I love garlic flavoring and I typically eat it with either sautéed onions and peppers by itself in a bowl (when I'm doing a low carb/ keto/ no sugar kind of day) or in corn tortillas. Make some homemade guacamole for on top and I'm in heaven!! I typically have it on high or near high for 4-5 hours, if it's soft enough I'll start shredding it and turn it down just a little then let it cook for another couple hrs.

    I made this last week and used the shredded beef for enchiladas and soft tacos. It was really good. I only used a little less than 1/2 the chili powder that the recipe called for because one of the persons I was cooking for is not a fan of strong chili powder flavor. It was a big hit.

    It did not have enough flavor. Next time I may add extra spices.

    Delicious! I followed the recipe except for the amount of chili powder; I added two teaspoons in lieu of two tablespoons (I know the tastes of those for whom I cook). 😋

    This is the best tasting Mexican beef I have ever had!! I did add 2 xtra garlic cloves and onion powder. I also did not drain the juice from the chili peppers. This will be my main recipe from now on I also used the crock pot method no foil

    Needs more spice, onions, and fresh cilantro.

    I've made this at least 5 times now and it is amazing for one exception "salt" it needs more for that amount of meat. If i use 3 pounds i use 1 teaspoon of salt, if i double the recipe which is usual for me since i like the leftovers for shredded beef sandwiches with salsa i use 2 teaspoons of salt. Other than that this has replaced my usual recipe for shredded beef.

    Very tasty and easy to make. Put it in tacos for dinner then made a casserole with the leftover meat and it was still very tender and juicy. Be sure to use a roasting pan or put some water in the bottom of your baking dish because the long cooking time cracked my favorite dish and i had to throw it away.

    This is yummy and so easy to make. It was a big hit. I tried it with tacos, but I'm looking forward to trying it with enchiladas and nachos as well.
