How to make it

  • Directions
  • 1Trim most of the fat from the chuck roast. Cut the roast into 6 to 8 large pieces, pat dry with paper towels, and season with 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • 2Heat a large, heavy-bottomed stainless steel or cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Add in 2 tablespoons of vegetable to coat the bottom of the pan. Allow the oil to heat the pan for a few seconds. Use tongs to gently place the pieces of chuck roast into the skillet leaving a couple of inches between each piece of meat. The meat will sizzle and stick to the bottom of the pan — this is a good thing. Once the meat is seared on the first side, it will release from the pan with ease. Repeat the process to sear all sides of the meat. Remove the seared meat from the pan and place into a slow cooker set to high heat.
  • 3In a blender, add apple cider vinegar, garlic, cumin, oregano, cloves, black pepper, kosher salt, chicken stock, lime juice, and chipotle chiles. Blend the sauce on medium speed until smooth. Pour the sauce over the seared meat, and stir to coat. Add in bay leaves and cover. Cook on high heat for 6 hours (or low for 10). Shred beef, return the beef to sauce, stir to coat, and serve.
