Prep time
Cook time
Total time
This slow cooker beef is perfect served over rice or as tacos/burritos!
Serves: 6-12
  • 1½ - 3 pounds beef roast (chuck roast/chuck shoulder/round roast/rump roast/bottom round all work well!)
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup apple juice
  • ¼ cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or pushed through a garlic press
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • When Served as an Entree, also cook jasmine rice
  • For tacos: Flour tortillas, Quick Asian Slaw (see recipe below), Sour Cream, Hot Sauce (optional), Fresh Chopped Cilantro (optional)
  • For burritos: Taco ingredients + cooked jasmine rice
  1. In your slow cooker pot, whisk together all of the ingredients except the roast.
  2. Place roast in the slow cooker, flip over, then cook on low for 7-8 hours, turning roast 2-4 times during cooktime.
  3. Serve on flour tortillas topped with sour cream and slaw, plus hot sauce and cilantro if using, to make tacos. Add rice to make burritos. WARNING: These tacos are very drippy, but it's worth the mess! As my 4-year-old Owen tells everyone, "Make sure you lean over your plate!" Wonder where he got that from...
Each 1 pound of beef cooked will make about 6 generous tacos and would serve around 4 as an entree on rice.
