Delicious and rich Slow Cooker Lamb Barbacoa is a perfect supper for busy days, but I think it would make a great main dish for a dinner party.
I’ve been a huge fan of Chef Rick Bayless, so I was extremely excited to attend an event hosted by Negra Modelo featuring Chef Bayless recently in Phoenix. I attended the media meet & greet (before the event)…let me tell you that meeting someone that you’d never dream of meeting and being able to have several conversations with him was a dream come true.
Chef Bayless cooked this Slow Cooker Lamb Barbacoa for the crowd of attendees at the Negra Modelo event. The barbacoa is rich and full of the most amazing flavor. I’ve never had meat cooked like this with the use of beer, but it was so good. I am a huge fan of traditional barbacoa too, but I loved this version. I can’t wait to make this recipe at home for my family and friends. There was just so much flavor and it came together really fast that I know it will be good for home cooks.
Don’t let the list of ingredients or instructions scare you…I promise it’s easy! NO SLOW COOKER?
FOR THE LAMB:
FOR THE MARINADE:
Negra Modelo is an imported, dark lager characterized by it’s slow roasted caramel malts, a hint of sweetness, and it’s signature reddish color. Only the finest hops and exceptional yeast give it a balanced flavor and smoothe taste.
