Remember the Slow Cooker Guinness Shredded Beef I made on Tuesday? Well, at the end of that I post, I believe I promised you tacos, and tacos you shall have!

Keeping with the St. Patrick’s Day theme, I thought I would put the Slow Cooker Guinness Shredded Beef to good use by stuffing it between a crispy flour tortilla and topping it with a stout-infused mustard slaw.

Not only does the slow cooker do all the work, but these tacos are simply delicious. I plowed through four of them with gusto and would have kept going if my stomach hadn’t objected.

The beef is moist and tender with the bold flavor of rich, almost chocolate-y Guinness Extra Stout, but I must confess that the mustard slaw is responsible for taking these tacos to tasty town. It’s crunchy, tangy, and has just the right amount of zip.

I picked up a jar of Sierra Nevada Stout Mustard to create the crunchy mustard slaw. I had no idea Sierra Nevada went beyond crafting beer, but I’m glad they did, because their mustard was the perfect addition to this recipe. It’s slightly spicy with a hint of stout flavor in the background, which pairs nicely with the Guinness I used to make the shredded beef.
