Mexican Pulled Beef

  • ½ tablespoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • black pepper
  • 1 kg chuck beef roast or small brisket

Lime Cauliflower Rice

  • ½ head of cauliflower
  • zest and juice of half a lime

Extras (optional)

  • red capsicum
  • red cabbage
  • avocado
  • lime
  • fresh parsley or coriander optional


  • Make the beef. Mix spices together and rub over the outside of the beef making sure it is coated. Add to the bowl of a slow cooker with ¼ cup of water and cook on high for 6 hours.
  • Once beef is done, remove from liquid and pull using two forks. Sprinkle with salt to taste. 
  • Make the lime cauliflower rice. Grate cauliflower by hand or using a food processor. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a pan and fry cauliflower. Add lime juice, zest and salt to taste. Mix through and take off heat. Don’t cook too long as cauliflower will get mushy.
  • Assemble the bowls. Place cauliflower rice and pulled beef in a bowl with your choice of extras, including red capsicum and red cabbage. Serve bowls with avocado, fresh herbs if desired and a generous squeeze of lime.


Mexican seasoning mix makes a little more than you might need, but just store any left overs in a airtight container in the pantry.
Adjust the quantity of chilli powder to your tastes depending on how spicy you want it. 
In these photos I served the avocado just sliced on top, however it is also delicious mashed into a guacamole with a little salt, garlic powder and lime added.
