Prepared in a pressure cooker (or not), this meat comes out fork tender. It is SPICY, so don't be afraid to cut back on the chipotles. YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!
- 2 -3 lbs beef roast (the pot roast cut)
- 1 onion (peeled quartered)
- 1 green pepper (seeded quartered)
- 5 -6 chipotle peppers, they are SPICY so adjust down if you dont like too much spice (canned in adobo)
- 1 cup fresh cilantro, rough chopped
- 5 -6 garlic cloves, smashed with edge of knife to peel
- 2 -3 teaspoons cumin, to your taste
- 2 -3 teaspoons oregano, to your taste
- 1 cup water
- 2 -3 teaspoons salt
- 2 -3 teaspoons pepper
- 2 -3 tablespoons olive oil
- Liberally salt and pepper roast then brown on all sides 5-8 minutes using olive oil in the bottom of the pressure cooker pan.
- While the meat is browning chop onions, green peppers, cilantro, and get garlic peeled/smashed.
- Remove roast onto platter. Drain excess fat/oil from pan. Put grate in bottom of the pressure cooker (don't worry if you dont have a grate), add meat, onions, green peppers, garlic, cilantro and chipotles. Season all with cumin and oregano to taste, add 1 cup of water. ** If no Pressure cooker don't worry, cover meat with water and simmer for 1 1/2 - 2 hours till tender.**.
- Close pressure cooker, bring to pressure, then reduce heat and cook at 15psi for 1 hour, let cooker cool down naturally.
- Remove meat from cooker to rest for 5 minutes, discard veggies (or if you prefer extra SPICY shred them up with the meat). Reserve a small amount of the liquid in pan.
- Shred meat with two forks (discard any fat/gristle), return to reserved liquid and keep warm on low heat until ready to use in burritos or tacos with your favorite fillings.
Now THIS is cooking with fire. So hot I think it burned off my taste buds. 5 dang stars!
My husband's favorite meal so far. I didn't use the chipotle peppers because of my toddler...I used some chipotle seasoning mix instead and everyone ate it.
this is delicious. i have made it several times and everyone loves it. i use the meat to make burritos or tacos with sour cream, guacamole, cheese, beans, salsa, and cilantro lime rice. better than the chipotle restaurant version and easy to make :) leftovers are great with quesadillas and even mexican omelets. i just now noticed after making this from memory that i never remembered the garlic - it's fine without garlic though.
