Add the chipotles in adobo, onion, garlic, broth or beer, apple cider vinegar, lime juice, cumin, oregano, ground cloves, salt, and black pepper to a blender and blend on high until smooth. Toss the bay leaves on top of the beef, pour the contents of the blender over the contents, stir., and cover Let the beef stand overnight to marinate. In the morning, add the crock to the slow-cooker, turn the temperature to LOW. Cook 8 hours on LOW or 4 hours on HIGH, or until the beef shreds very easily with a fork. Remove and discard the bay leaves. Use two forks to shred the meat in the sauces.
