Known in Latin countries as "Barbacoa", this beef chuck roast is smothered in chillies and seasonings then slow cooked in the oven, pulled apart and served with tortillas.
Just wanted to let you know that barbacoa is not a chuck roast; it is beef cheek meat. - 18 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Like the other person said, Barbacoa is beef cheek and is very good but has a very different flavor then a roast. Aside from that, this recipe looks really yummy - 24 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This recipe is pretty good. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because the meat needs to be browned before roasting, and because the final product didn't have that spiciness I like barbacoa to have. Next time I'll add more chilies. - 17 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
