Ingredients

  • 1 boneless beef chuck roast (2 to 3 pounds)
  • 1 large sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon adobo sauce
  • 1 envelope au jus gravy mix
  • 1 tablespoon Creole seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 6 French rolls, split
  • Guacamole and salsa, optional

Directions

Place roast in a 3- to 4-qt. slow cooker; top with onion. Combine the broth, water, chipotle peppers, adobo sauce, gravy mix, Creole seasoning, chili powder and cumin; pour over meat. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until meat is tender.
Remove roast; cool slightly. Skim fat from cooking juices. Shred beef with two forks and return to slow cooker; heat through. Using a slotted spoon, place meat on rolls. Serve with guacamole or salsa if desired and the cooking juices.
Freeze option: Freeze individual portions of cooled meat mixture and juices in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally. Serve on rolls with guacamole and salsa if desired.
Yield: 6 servings.
Editor's Notes: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face. The following spices may be substituted for 1 tablespoon Creole seasoning: 3/4 teaspoon each salt, garlic powder and paprika; and a pinch each of dried thyme, ground cumin and cayenne pepper.
