“This recipe was handed down to me by a Korean friend. So full of flavor! I wanted to share it with you all. I did tweak it a little to add more spice. Feel free to tweak it yourself!”
1 (3 pound) beef chuck roast, trimmed
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/3 cup soy sauce
10 cloves garlic
1 jalapeno pepper, diced (optional)
1 (1 inch) piece fresh ginger root, peeled and grated
2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
salt and ground black pepper to taste
16 (6 inch) corn tortillas (optional)
Put chuck roast into the crock of a slow cooker; add onion, brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic, jalapeno pepper, ginger root, rice vinegar, sesame oil, salt, and pepper.
Cook on High for 8 hours (or on Low for 10 hours). Shred meat with a pair of forks and stir into the liquid in the slow cooker.
Serve with corn tortillas and your favorite toppings.
This recipe was handed down to me, and I tweaked it a little by skipping the ginger and diced jalapeno. Instead I used 2 tablespoons garlic-chili paste from the Asian isle at the grocer. Depending on how spicy you like you may add more. We love spice!
Also, for the the topping I added a shredded bag of cole slaw, thinly sliced cucumbers, and carrots, tossed in 1 tablespoon soy sauce and 2 tablespoons rice vinegar, with salt and pepper to taste.
