Here is the way I like to make Mexican barbacoa at home. I put all of my ingredients in the Crock Pot overnight and wake up to tender fall apart barbacoa. As a kid, I remember waiting in a line out the door at our neighborhood Mexican meat market for fresh corn tortillas, menudo and barbacoa. You can make barbacoa tacos dresses with your favorite salsa, fresh onion, cilantro and a squeeze of lime for the perfect breakfast taco.
2 bls beef cheek meat (stew meat or beef tongue work too)
2 tsp salt (1 1/2 tsp if using fine table salt)
2 to 3 cloves fresh garlic
2 bay leaves
1/2 small onion
5 to 8 drops of liquid smoke (optional)
2 tbls water (optional – to combine with liquid smoke)
Cook overnight on LOW for 12 hours
OR cook on HIGH for 8 hours
