Mocha Spice Shredded Beef

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!
