Mexican Beef - Asado a la Mexicana

Way back before the cooking blogs were so popular, I was reading and trying recipes from Yahoo cooking groups. There were groups for different cooking topics... Maybe they are still there even, I am not sure! I belonged to a crock pot group, ten years ago and got lots of great recipes. Namely this one! It never disappoints, and you can always dress it up more if you want, or keep it simple.

This is perfect for the hot weather we are having. Through everything in the crock pot and keep from heating up the kitchen! My favorite side dish with this is Cilantro Lime Rice, from Macaroni & Cheesecake. 

Asado a la Mexicana
4 lb. Beef Roast
4 Garlic Cloves, crushed
2 t. cumin
2 t. chili powder
1 c. fresh salsa
1 green pepper, cut into strips
1 onion, cut into strips

Place roast in slow cooker.  Cover with remaining ingredients.  Cook on low for 8 - 10 hours; until roast pulls apart easily.  Remove the roast from the slow cooker.  Shred beef.  With slotted spoon, remove veggies from crock and mix with beef.

Serve with tortillas, guacamole, salsa, sour cream, etc.
