This Slow Cooker Birria Recipe is one of my family’s favorites! It is absolutely delicious, and you can enjoy it in so many ways. We love to make barrio tacos or quesadillas with this meat, but it is also great all by itself, or served on a salad. The beef slow cooks all day, and it will fill your home with the most tempting smells. Be careful – your neighbors may show up asking what time dinner is!

I have wanted a smoker for some time now, but we haven’t gotten one just yet. I decided to take matters into my own hands and make some delicious pulled pork with my slow cooker, and I sure was happy with the results!
