You guys have a shredded beef recipe or know of a good YouTube video on the subject ?

I'm looking for the kind you put in tacos, burritos, enchiladas, etc.

My recommendation is to use brisket. Cook it in a slow cooker with chili or taco seasoning for about eight hours. It will fall apart easily into shreds. I did the same thing with pork shoulder and it made excellent tacos.

Look for a Carne Guisado (de res) recipe. My GF makes this often but never follows a written recipe.

I'll do the 8 hours if necessary, just as long as it turns out the way it should.

The slow cooker method seems like it would be the easiest.

Even easier; dump a can of enchilada sauce into the slow cooker with the brisket.

I grew very fond of this stuff when I lived in Corpus Christi. It's basically Mexican beef tips. This can be used for taco filling as well.

It'll be labeled as such or you can ask someone in that department.
