Spicy Shredded Beef

Short Stop's Spicy Shredded Beef

Sarah at the blog Short Stop shares really delicious recipes.
I've bookmarked many of hers and they are always great.

Her version of Spicy Shredded Beef is delicious and one our family really likes.
We haven't always been big beef eaters, so I like to find different ways to serve it.
Thomas recently discovered Wendy's hamburgers and has found that his 6 year dislike of hamburgers is over.

You know I love an easy recipe that I can do ahead of time and this is one of those!

You trim a 3-4 lb chuck roast and place it in your slow cooker.
Then you blend a can of Hot Rotel, vinegar, lime juice, spices, and olive oil and pour it over the roast.
Then you add chicken broth and bay leaves and let it cook away!

I cooked my roast on high for about 4 hours then turned it to low to finish.
Then I used two forks to shred the beef right into the sauce.
At this point I let it simmer a little while longer and then serve up.

Thomas likes it in taco shells with lettuce, cheese, beans, sour cream and salsa.
David and I like it with corn tortillas and all the fixin's.
Brennan likes to eat his plain and then put the toppings in a tortilla and eat them separate. (?)
I think it would be fantastic on super duper nachos.

  1. Yum! I have a bunch of beef in my freezer that I need to use from buying a quarter of a cow last winter. I'm getting a half this year, so we'd better start eating more of it.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I love any and all slow cooker recipes!!!


Welcome to my table! So glad you dropped by. I love hearing from you.
