Tex Mex Pot Roast and Beef Tortilla Soup

This recipe calls for a Chuck Pot Roast...BUT... this recipe is perfect for a goat/shoulder roast..slow cook with lots of moisture.


2 medium carrots, sliced
1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 medium onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp quick-cooking tapioca
1 (2-1/2 pound) chuck pot roast
1 (1.25 ounce) pkg Hy-Vee taco seasoning mix
1 (14.5 ounce) can Mexican-style stewed tomatoes, undrained
1 (16 ounce) jar Hy-Vee mild thick and chunky salsa
In a 3-1/2 or 4-quart slow cooker combine carrots, bell pepper, onion and garlic. Sprinkle tapioca over top. Rub roast with taco seasoning mix; place on top of vegetables.
Combine tomatoes and salsa and pour over roast in cooker. Cover; cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours or on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours.
Remove roast from cooker. Reserve one-third of beef.* Slice remaining beef and return to cooker. Serve beef and vegetables with a slotted spoon. Reserve remaining liquid.*
*Note: Shred beef or cut into chunks; place in a container. Transfer remaining liquid to another container. Cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Use in Beef Tortilla Soup.

  1. This dish is lovely. Ever since we visited my husband's brother in Dallas and had Tex Mex dishes, we were hooked. I would definitely try this. I like to make the dish with goat shoulder too. Thank you for sharing.
