Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 8 hours
Total Time 8 hours 10 minutes


  • 1kg beef brisket (or similar)
  • 1 onion
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 3 tsp crushed garlic
  • 8oz (225g) tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 tbsp coarse (or any) chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne


  • Chop the onion and peppers into large pieces and place into the slow cooker.
  • Place beef on top and season with salt and pepper.
  • Mix all other ingredients together in a bowl and spread on top of the beef.
  • I usually baste a few times throughout cooking.
  • Cook on low for around 8 hours then remove and shred the beef.
  • (I remove the onion and peppers and reserve in a bowl at this point as not everyone in my family likes them but would leave them if I could)
  • Return shredded beef to the sauce and mix to coat.
  • Serve in burritos/tacos or with rice.
  • It's as easy as that - enjoy!
