INGREDIENTS

  • 3 whole dried Mexican chilies seeds and stem removed
  • 1 quart low sodium store-bought or homemade chicken stock,
  • knorr bovril beef stock
  • 1 small onion, quartered
  • 10 medium cloves garlic, smashed
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 4 chipotle chilis packed in adobo, roughly chopped,
  • 5 limes juiced
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 1 whole chuck-eye roast (about 4 pounds), or 4 pounds boneless shortribs cut in large cubes
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 whole bay leaves
  • Kosher salt
    1. Place dried chilies on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on high power in 15-second increments until pliable and toasted-smelling, about 30 seconds total. Transfer to a 2-quart microwave-safe liquid measuring cup or bowl. Add 2 cups chicken broth, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave on high power until gently simmering, about 5 minutes. Remove from microwave. Add soaked chilies and their liquid to the blender along with fish sauce. Start blender on low and slowly increase speed to high. Puree until smooth, about 1 minute. Set aside.

      Place beef chuck in slow cooker.  Add all remaining ingredients. Ad enough beef broth or water to cover.  Cook High for 8 hours
