There was a great sale on chuck roasts last week at Lucky. They were on sale for 3.99/pound, which is the lowest I am able to find them. When they go on sale, I try to stock up.
My only complaint with chuck roasts as the go-to recipes tend to be slow cooker beef stew and instant pot pot roast. Those recipes are great, but sometimes you need a change. I also love my trusty stand by Instant Pot Taco Meat, as well.
That’s where these crockpot beef tacos come in. They are really easy to prepare and feed a crowd. We usually eat half of the batch and freeze the other half for a quick and easy meal on a busy night.
