    TBS coconut oil

    cups beef broth

    garlic cloves

Directions

In a bowl mix together salt, pepper, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin and oregano. Rub mixture all over beef roast to coat. In a large pan heat oil. Brown roast on all sides, about 6 minutes per side. Place in a slow cooker. Add onion and garlic. Pour in water and beef broth. Cover and cook for 8 hours. Remove from slow cooker and shred. Use to fill tortillas. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease baking sheet. To assemble, spoon 2 tablespoons of meat mixture into tortilla and roll closed. Place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat until all are rolled. Bake for 15 -20 minutes or until ends start to brown. Remove and sprinkle cheese on top. Turn oven setting to broil and broil for 2-3 minutes or until cheese melts. Remove from oven. Top with shredded lettuce and guacamole if desired. Serve with salsa for dipping. This will make a lot of meat so you will have leftover meat.
