I though I would never find a recipe that my guy would like, but this one he loved!  The beef is delicious with not just a spicy flavor, but a great flavor with a kick to it.

I found this recipe on allrecipes.com.  I am posting it here so I can easily come back to it to impress my guy again.

The Ingredients:

  • 1 (4 pound) beef bottom round roast or other lean roast
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 (7 ounce) can chopped green chilies
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 (7 ounce) can chipotle peppers in adobe sauce, or to taste
  • 1 cube beef bouillon

The Instructions:

  1. Trim the roast of any excess fat, and cut into four pieces.  Rub with black pepper, and place into slow cooker.  Add all ingredients.  Pour in enough water to cover 1/3 of the roast.
  2. Cover, and cook on High until the meat begins to fall apart, about 8 hours.  Add water if needed to keep the roast from drying out.
  3. Turn the slow cooker to Low, and remove meat to a large bowl with a slotted spoon.  Shred the meat into bite-sized pieces using two forks.  Return the meat to the slow cooker;  cook about 20 minutes to reheat before serving.

Cook’s Note:

If you’re unsure of how spicy you want this, start with 1/2 can chipotles.  If you cut the recipe in 1/2 (2 pound roast) keep everything except the chipotles the same.  Use 1/4 can chipotles.

We used this shredded beef in tacos and served with rice.  It really is good!
