I created Picante Beef Roast because I love the flavor of taco seasoning and think it shouldn't be reserved just for tacos! My recipe couldn't be easier, and it works great with a pork roast, too. —Margaret Thiel, Levittown, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 1 beef rump roast or bottom round roast (3 pounds), trimmed
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) picante sauce
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water

Directions

  1. Cut roast in half; place in a 5-qt. slow cooker. In a large bowl, combine the picante sauce, tomato sauce and taco seasoning; pour over roast. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours or until meat is tender.
  2. Remove meat to a serving platter; keep warm. Skim fat from cooking juices; transfer 3 cups to a small saucepan. Bring liquid to a boil. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth. Gradually stir into the pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with roast.
