These easy Barbacoa Beef Bowls are a perfect way to use up leftovers and avoid the restaurant lines by making this fresh and tasty meal at home!
One thing you should know about me is that when I saw I’m going to do something, I do it.
Most of the time.
For example, when I posted my recipe for Crockpot Barbacoa Beef, I said that I would share my recipe for Barbacoa Beef Bowls with you in just a few days.
Well, here we are, a few days later, and here is my awesome Beef Barbacoa Bowl recipe!
If you are wondering, What to serve with barbacoa beef? Serve it over rice with whatever fresh veggies you like. You can’t go wrong with corn, black beans, green onions, tomatoes, avocados and some cilantro! It also pairs well with this Brazilian cheese bread recipe.

You can even skip the rice and serve it over your favorite salad greens to make a delicious beef barbacoa salad!
Aren’t these Barbacoa Beef Bowls just a thing of beauty? I don’t know why, but I love when my food is like a rainbow of colors and awesomeness. Wow, that might be the best simile I’ve ever written.
I COULD have just haphazardly tossed all of these ingredients together into a bowl and went to town on it, but it is much more fun to carefully arrange each element in a perfect circle of joy and contentment.
Then you get to use your fork to destroy all of the perfection, mash it all up together, and shovel it into your mouth.
Oh, HECK yes.
