Back to our trusted friend, the slow cooker this week on Bite Me! Everyone should have one of these. A slow cooker makes meal prep a complete breeze, and it can help you make a wide array of delicious meals with almost no effort. This week, I made a batch of slow cooker barbacoa for meal prep, and it turned out fantastic. Fresh Thyme had grass fed meat on a crazy sale, and I was able to buy a 2 pound London Broil roast which I used for this recipe. London Broil is a great option for roasts because it only has 2.5 grams of fat and 26 grams of protein per 4 oz. serving, and you get bonus points if you use the grass fed version for your slow cooker barbacoa.
A few of these ingredients I will list as optional, but I really recommend including all of them. Just like at Chipotle, this slow cooker barbacoa is not "spicy" but it does have some smoke and a little bit of heat to it. Feel free to make it spicier by adding things like cayenne pepper, or fresh jalapeños.
