Crock Pot Shredded Beef Tacos

What are your favorite summertime meals?


  1. A question about your shredded beef tacos. How big was the roast you used and how many people do you think it would feed? It looks delicious! I am having around 15 people over on Saturday and I would like to try this recipe. It has been so hot that a meal that uses the crockpot seems perfect.

      I think the roast was about 4 pounds. For 15 people I would probably have about a 5 pound roast.
