Braised Southwest Beef Roast Recipe

Seasoned with Southwestern zest, this lean beef roast is fork-tender and gets a little kick from salsa. "My husband, Phillip, and our two young daughters raise our own cattle and hogs on a farm just outside Freeburg, Missouri," writes Cathy Sestak. "This one of our favorite ways to eat beef. Enjoy!"
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 2-1/2 hours YIELD:5 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 beef eye of round roast (2 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 1-1/4 cups salsa
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 bay leaf

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder and oregano; rub over roast. In a Dutch oven, brown meat in oil. Remove from the pan.
  • 2. Gradually add broth, stirring to loosen any browned bits from pan. Stir in salsa, water and bay leaf; return meat to pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 2-1/4 to 2-1/2 hours or until meat is fork-tender.
  • 3. Set meat aside and keep warm. Bring pan juices to a boil. Cook, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes or until sauce is reduced to about 1-1/3 cups; skim fat. Discard bay leaf. Serve sauce with meat. Yield: 5 servings.
