Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what we expected Ok I have to be honest...this was not a favorite in our house! It was unanimously decided that this one gets a 3 out of 5. I really think that we were expecting something different based on the recipe name (Shredded Beef Tacos) There is not a "taco" flavor at all. Following the recipe exactly, we decided... 1. The meat tastes VERY good & would be perfect for a Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich on a toasted hoagie roll. 2. The sour cream "recipe" was also VERY good and will be made again...(on a true Taco night) 3. We are going to try this recipe again,, BUT we are replacing the Garlic Pepper and Simply Salsa Seasonings with Mom's Favorite Taco Seasoning with everything else the same!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy I cooked mine in the pressure cooker. I thought it needed more of a taco taste and smell, so in addition I added Wahoo Chili Seasoning. Was a big hit! The family did theirs on a wrap I did mine over a salad. Hardly any leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A little bland I was really excited to try this because I'm on the hunt for a great shredded beef for tacos. Even with 2 tablespoons of Simply Salsa mix it was bland. I added a sprinkle of garlic garlic & wahoo chili mix to pump the flavor. I'm glad I made it but I wouldn't make it again.
