I made tortas out of this shredded beef. I had almost 3 lbs of chuck. I made a mistake and got Anchiote molida instead of Ancho powder. Ooops! I was kinda worried about it all day cuz I cooked it in the crockpot. Didn't want to waste awhole roast but it was good. Topped with lettuce, sour cream, avacado, salsa, and queso fresco. Will use the leftovers for tacos tomorrow night. I would half the amount of water next time.

Amazing... we loved it!! I followed your recipe completely, just added a jalapeno. I seared the meat and sauteed the veggies and cooked it all in the crockpot for 7 hours. The last hour I pulled out the meat, shredded it and put it back in and left the lid off. The sauce thickened up beautifully, it was delicious! We ate it on corn tortillas alone because it needed nothing to go with it. Looking forward to left overs for lunch tomorrow! Thanks Juenessa :)

OMGoodness. What a delicious pot roast!! A nice change from the regular style standard pot roast. I used the crockpot also. Used regular chili powder and omitted the cayenne. I put the rest of the tomato sauce on the stove and reduced it a bit and added all the tomatoes and onions back to the shredded meat. Would be great as a filling for enchiladas, burritos, etc. We had it in warm corm tortillas with lettuce, cheese, cilantro and guac. This is so good!! Thanks for posting it !!
