Mexican Barbecoa Beef Bites

This slow simmer dinner is perfect for a small family on a cold winter’s day. Since it is made with Simmering Steak, you get a meal that is much like a stew or pot roast. It’s perfect to prepare in the slow cooker.

  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 75
  • Total Time: 1 hour 25 minutes
  • Serving: 24


2 lb (0.91 kg) Blade or Cross Rib Simmering Steak

½ tsp (2 mL) EACH salt, pepper and chili powder

1 can (540 mL) chopped stewed tomatoes

½ (38.5 g envelope) onion soup mix

1 large onion, sliced lengthwise

½ cup (125 mL) barbecue sauce

½ (341 bottle) beer


Season steak all over with salt, pepper and chili powder. Brown in lightly oiled Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Meanwhile, combine tomatoes, onion soup mix, barbecue sauce and beer (or 1/2 cup water). Pour over steak.

Cover and simmer on stove top or in 325°F (160°C) oven until fork-tender, about 1-1/4 to 2 hours (OR cook in slow cooker on LOW setting for 6 to 8 hours).

Remove steak from pot and keep warm. Skim fat from sauce and season to taste. Serve as ‘pulled beef’ by shredding with 2 forks. Serve with sauce, tucked into tacos or flour tortillas if desired.
