For this recipe, make sure your crock-pot has at least a 4-quart capacity. 

 

In a crock-pot, mix all ingredients except beef. Add beef and stir to coat.

 

Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours, until beef is fully cooked and tender.

 

Transfer beef to a large bowl. Shred with two forks  one to hold the beef in place and the other to scrape across and shred it.

 

Return the shredded beef to the crock pot and mix well. Enjoy!
