Braised Beef Burritos

Total Time:

6hrs 30mins




6hrs 15mins

Skill Level:



  • 2 lbs. stewing beef
  • canola oil, for cooking
  • salt, to taste
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1/2 - 1 cup beef or chicken stock
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro (optional)
  • corn or flour tortillas
  • steamed rice, black beans, corn or other additions
  • salsa, guacamole, sour cream or other condiments

How to Make It


Set a large ovenproof pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat, add a drizzle of oil and brown the beef in batches, sprinkling with salt. As it browns, transfer to a plate—or a slow cooker, if you’d like to use one.


Add the onion to the pan and cook for a few minutes.


If you’re using a slow cooker, add the remaining ingredients to it (using 1/2 cup stock) along with the onion. Otherwise preheat the oven to 300˚F, return the beef to the pot, sprinkle with chilli powder and add the salsa and 1 cup stock, stirring to loosen any browned bits in the bottom of the pan.


Cover and cook for 3 hours, or until the meat is very tender. (In the slow cooker, cook on low for 6 hours.)


Shred it with forks and serve wrapped in tortillas with your choice of additions and condiments.
