Achiote Beef Tacos with Pomegranate Salsa Recipe

Slow roasted achiote beef is a perfect match for a bright and sunny pomegranate and jalapeño salsa. Gluten and dairy free! The beef takes at least 4 hours to roast so plan ahead. It tastes even better on the second or third day so roasting the beef on Sunday for weekday tacos is an excellent idea. Rewarm the shredded beef with a little beef broth or chicken broth in a covered frying pan over medium heat. Finely shredded cabbage, cilantro, and thinly sliced loquats are a real treat on top but you could also top the tacos with this stunner of a slaw.
