Picante Beef Roast
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Cook: 8 hours
This recipe is delicious! I made this for a family dinner and everyone loved it.
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.
This was simple to put together and made a great Sunday dinner.
Super easy ..super delicious!!!
I used a top round roast as I went for what looked best for roasts at our Meat Dept but will definately try with bottom round next time since there's a 30 calorie difference in 5 oz of meat. I also used "reduced sodium" picante, tomato sauce and taco seasoning. I cooked at 275* for 5 hours and it come out fork tender. The "Gravy" was amazing flavor with the roast. I'll definately be fixing this again.
Absolutely wonderful flavor - I did not brown the beef ahead of time, but don't think I needed to necessarily either. Sauce can stand alone without thickening agent if you're not serving potatoes or rice as a side.
MMMM. Delicious. And a great out of the pantry dish. Only thing I did different: I browned the meat before putting it in the crock pot.
Very good and soooooooo easy. We loved it!!
Loved it! We did not do the cornstarch and water part.
