Slow Cooker Lamb Barbacoa


This hearty lamb barbacoa is perfect for taco night and it requires just a few minutes of hands-on preparation thanks to the magic of your slow cooker. When simmered low and slow over the course of a few hours the lamb becomes juicy, succulent, and fall-apart tender. The secret to the lamb’s flavor is in the piquant paste made of onion, tomato, lime juice, apple cider vinegar, and a variety of herbs and spices. Combine these ingredients in a food processor before adding to the slow cooker with your favorite beef broth, cloves, and bay leaves.

After cooking for five hours the lamb should be fork-tender and ready to eat. To serve, place in corn tortillas and top the meat with some avocado and this tangy cilantro pesto, and you’ve got a flavor-packed dinner that won’t overheat your kitchen during the hot summer months.
