Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Beef

So here’s the deal: this was sooooo good we ate it before I even remembered to take a picture! My family came over to our new house for our annual Christmas celebration last night and I was planning on making carnitas for them. I bundled up my little baby on Sunday night and we headed to the store and wouldn’t you know it….no pork shoulder in stock. Really?? Yeah, I was not happy. So what they did have was an endless amount of chuck roast so I though hmmmm maybe I could use that Trader Joe’s Salsa Verde in my pantry on this instead of chicken like I did last time. And guess what! It worked!!! This was soooo moist and tasty. We made fajitas out of the meat but you could eat it over rice, salad or pasta. It is extremely versatile and guaranteed to impress the company. You don’t even have to tell them it took you one minute to put this in your slow cooker and hit the “on” button!!


3-5 lbs Chuck Roast

2 jars Trader Joe’s Salsa Verde (you can use any green salsa and the amount doesn’t really matter as long as you put in enough for the beef to cook in)


1. Cut up your roast into 3 inch chunks. Place in slow cooker

2. Pour the salsa verde over and mix it up to make sure the salsa is spread over all the meat.

3. Cook on low for 8 hours.

4. Take beef out and shred with two forks and serve!
