For the Pulled Beef:

  • 1.5 lbs beef chuck roast
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1/4 cup Grumpy Gary's Jalapeno Hot Sauce (adjust to taste)
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Coleslaw:

  • 2 cups shredded cabbage (green and purple mix)
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For Serving:

  • 8-10 small tortillas (corn or flour)
  • Grumpy Gary's Jalapeno Hot Sauce, for drizzling
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)
  • Lime wedges (optional)


  1. Prepare the Pulled Beef:

    • Season the beef chuck roast with salt and pepper.
    • Heat a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Sear the beef on all sides until browned, about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove the beef and set aside.
    • In the same skillet, add the sliced onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute until fragrant.
    • Return the beef to the skillet. Add the beef broth, Grumpy Gary's Jalapeno Hot Sauce, brown sugar, chili powder, cumin, and smoked paprika. Stir to combine.
    • Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 2.5 to 3 hours, or until the beef is tender and easily pulls apart with a fork.
    • Remove the beef from the skillet and shred it using two forks. Return the shredded beef to the skillet and toss with the sauce. Keep warm until ready to serve.
  2. Make the Coleslaw:

    • In a large bowl, combine the shredded cabbage and grated carrot.
    • In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, apple cider vinegar, honey, salt, and pepper.
    • Pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture and toss until well combined. Adjust seasoning to taste. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Assemble the Tacos:

    • Heat the tortillas according to package instructions.
    • Spoon a generous portion of the pulled beef onto each tortilla.
    • Top with a scoop of coleslaw.
    • Drizzle with additional Grumpy Gary's Jalapeno Hot Sauce, to taste.
    • Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro and serve with lime wedges on the side.
  4. Serve and Enjoy:

    • Serve the pulled beef tacos immediately, allowing everyone to customize their tacos with extra hot sauce, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime.
    • Enjoy the bold flavors and satisfying textures of these delicious tacos!
