Mocha Spice Shredded Beef


2015/05/09 by nikkiledford

Brace yourself for an incredibly yummy slow cooker recipe! In fact, it’s so simple that I’m going to tell you how to make it in one sentence…

Rub the roast with spice mix and set it in your crock pot on high for 4-6 hours (low about 8 hours or overnight). Done!

Spice rub ingredients are listed below. A smokey BBQ sauce or bacon jam would pair great with this, but it’s sufficiently tasty by itself.


Mocha Spice Shredded Beef

3 lb. chuck roast
1 Tbsp. sea salt
2 Tbsp. coffee grounds
1 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Tbsp. dried oregano
1 Tbsp. smoked paprika
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
¼ tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. ground chipotle
zest of 1/2 orange

(optional: 1 Tbsp. coconut sugar)

  1. Mix all spices in a bowl and rub generously on your roast.
  2. Cook on high for 4-6 hours, low for 8 – overnight.
  3. Shred the meat and serve warm. It’s also delicious when crisped up under the broiler!
  4. Serve with cauliflower rice, fried plantains, or roasted yam wedges!

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌶 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad 🥑🍋🌶🥒
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. ☀️🥗☀️🥗☀️ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
