Picante Beef Roast Recipe

Before putting in the slow cooker, trim the fat from the roast to avoid greasy gravy. If your roast weighs 3 or more pounds, cut it in half to ensure even cooking. Margaret Thiel - Levittown, Pennsylvania

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 19, 2013

"Used a 2-1/2 lb chuck roast which I cut in half, rolled in flour, salt & pepper and seared. Popped it into the crock, poured the sauce on top and cooked for 8 hours on low. It literally fell apart! We really liked the gravy too. Served it w/ roasted potatoes, carrots and onions on the side. Will definitely make again."

"This was good...not as spicey as I expected though. If you like it hot I'd use hot picante and more taco spice."
