Chipotle Roast Beef

On Tuesdays I have class until 7:00 pm. And then I drive 45 minutes home. So needless to say, those days are complete craziness. I've been using my crockpot to fill the cooking void because while my husband makes dang good fajitas, he rarely wants to cook. As in, I think it's happened 5 times since we've been married. Two of which were during our honeymoon.

Anyhow, here's a great slow cooker recipe for you:

In your slow cooker, place your beef roast. You can use whatever kind of roast appeals to you.

Top it with the liquid from a can of chipotle peppers along with 3-5 of the actual peppers themselves. These bad boys pack quite a bit of heat so don't go too crazy.

Pour in about two cups of water.

Add garlic, marjoram, salt, pepper and some chopped onion.

Cover and cook on low for about 8 hours. The longer you cook it, the more tender and delightful it will be.

When it came time to pull this bad boy out, it was so tender that it just fell apart. Yay! :)

Chipotle Roast Beef
Serves 4

2 lb. beef roast
1 can chipotle peppers
4 cloves garlic
2 tsp. marjoram
kosher salt
black pepper
1 onion, chopped

In a slow cooker, place your beef roast. Pour in about two cups of water. Add about half of the canned chipotle peppers and all the liquid in the can. Top beef with garlic, marjoram, salt, black pepper and onion.

Cover and cook on "low" for approximately 8 hours, give or take a little time on either end.

Remove the tender beef from your slow cooker, leaving the chipotle peppers behind. Cut or shred and you're ready to serve!


  1. These look great. My favorite crock pot recipe is Autumn pot roast with sweet potatoes OR Hawaiian chicken.

  2. This looks just DELICIOUS!

    I would like to invite you to participate in Slow Cooking Saturdays Recipe Swap @ Crock Pot Recipe Exchange. I have scheduled themes each week and the upcoming themes are posted here

    Keep up the GREAT work and keep the crock pot recipes coming!


I love feedback from y'all and try my best to respond to as many questions as possible.
