Barbacoa Using Cachete de Res
Author: Lori
  • 6lbs of Cachete de Res (Beef Cheeks)
  • Handful of Comino
  • Handful of Salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 32oz Beef Broth
  • Water to Cover
  1. Pour your broth, salt, pepper, and comino into your slow cooker.
  2. Add your cachete de res and cover with water.
  3. Cook on low for 10 hours.
  4. When done, shred with forks and serve with rice, beans, and homemade tortillas.  I also recommend you top with fresh cilantro and onion!
You could also add lengua de res (beef tongue) if you wanted.
