And is best when it cooks low and slow.
So it’s perfect for a busy day.
Skinny on Crock Pot Salsa Verde Beef
To keep it lean I used a rump roast instead of chuck, which is tasty too, but higher in fat.

Here’s another way to make Slow Cooker Mexican-Style Beef:
This simple crock pot salsa verde beef has only 3 ingredients and makes delicious shredded beef tacos!
- 2 pounds rump roast (or other lean beef roast)

- 1 cup salsa verde
Ideal slow cooker size: 3- to 4-Quart.
Place roast in the slow cooker. Sprinkle taco seasoning packet all over the roast. Pour the salsa over the beef.
Cover and cook on LOW 6 to 8 hours, or until beef is very tender and pulls apart easily with a fork.
Remove beef from slow cooker. Drain the liquid from the slow cooker and set it aside.
Shred the beef by cutting it into chunks and then pulling it apart with two forks. Discard any fat and place the shredded beef back into slow cooker.
Pour 1/2 - 1 cup of the liquid back into shredded beef.
Reduce setting to WARM until ready to serve.
