Mealthy Tip

Fill your tacos with lots of fresh shredded cabbage, diced avocado, chopped fresh tomatoes, and sliced radishes. Sprinkle Cotija cheese or queso fresco over each taco for extra flavor. Add more cayenne or chopped jalapeño peppers to the broth or extra spice! This also freezes well; just put leftovers in a container, seal, and freezer. Take it out the day before you want to use it and defrost in the refrigerator.

I didn't have any beef stock handy so I used chicken, but that was hardly an issue. Where can you go wrong slow-cooking tri-tip until fork tender? So. Good. If you have leftovers and want something other than tacos, these would be great as a topping for nachos or just on a bun as a little pulled beef slider with some cabbage. Yum.

My wife and I used our slow cooker to make this recipe and we are both highly impressed. The beef broth with onion and garlic gave this meat delicious flavor, and it was very tender. It was also seasoned well with the cumin and other spices.
