Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned on all sides, 5 to 6 minutes total. Place onion slices in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Add the beef. Whisk broth and tomato paste into the remaining spice mixture and pour over the beef.
Cover and cook on High for 4 hours or Low for 8 hours. Shred the beef with 2 forks. Stir back into the liquid.
Meanwhile, toss rhubarb and sugar together in a medium bowl. Let sit for 10 minutes. Add bell pepper, jalapeño to taste, red onion, cilantro, lime juice and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and stir to combine.
Serve the beef with tortillas, the rhubarb salsa and lime wedges.
