I decided to take a short break from my recent baking obsession and made some Slow Cooker Beer Braised Beef Brisket Tacos with Chipotle Slaw.

I’ve never really fancied myself a baker, but sometimes when life goes down the crapper, stress baking is where it’s at.  But I can also totally get on board with stress free slow cooker comfort food.  And beer. And beer braised beef brisket.  And Tacos. And avocados.  You get the idea.

NOTES:

  1. I used 2 36 ounce cans of Lazy Bird Brown Ale from Birdsong Brewing Company
  2. The beef brisket should be falling apart after cooking so long and slow, but it not, it can easily be shredded with a fork
  3. I prefer to use corn tortillas, but if flour tortillas or crunchy taco shells blow your dress up, by all means be all you can be!
  4. I don’t like things super spicy and used 2 chipotle peppers and 3 tablespoons of adobo, so feel free to add more spice or top with hot sauce or chopped raw spicy peppers
