This sounds like an awesome Mexican dish, serving it over rice and mixing some broccoli in it…YUM!! or make it a taco!! Another Gluten free beauty and a Crock-It Dish, can’t get any easier!! I tried this a few wks back, I slacked on the spice of it and wished I didn’t because it needed more so definetly follow the recipe!! I served mine over Broccoli!



  • 1 (4 pound) chuck roast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 1/4 cups diced green chile pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 (5 ounce) bottle hot pepper sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder


Trim the roast of any excess fat, and season with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place meat in hot skillet, and brown meat quickly on all sides.

Transfer the roast to a slow cooker, and sprinkle onion over meat. Season with chile peppers, chili powder, cayenne pepper, hot pepper sauce, and garlic powder. Add enough water to cover 1/3 of the roast.

Cover, and cook on High for 6 hours, checking to make sure there is always at least a small amount of liquid in the bottom. Reduce heat to Low, and continue cooking for 2 to 4 hours, or until meat is totally tender and falls apart.
