The beauty of this recipe is you can really cater it to your specific tastes. It makes a great BBQ with or without added sauce, and you can control how mild or spicy you like it.

This is a family favorite for us year round, whether for summer birthdays or Holiday parties.

5 Min


8 Hr


4 - 5 lb
beef (or pork) roast
16 oz
jar of salsa
½ - 1 c
your favorite bbq sauce (optional)
2 pinch
salt and pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

Set Crock pot on low and add ½ the jar of salsa, a pinch of salt and pepper.
Put roast in Crock Pot and cover with the rest of the salsa, and another pinch of salt and pepper. No need to add water.
Add ½ to 1 cups of BBQ sauce (optional). I would recommend starting with the ½ cup at first, and add more later, if desired.
Cook on low for 8 hours. Do not remove the lid, there is no need to stir.
About 1 hour before serving, take two forks and shred the beef. Add additional BBQ sauce (optional). Recover, and let marinate until ready to serve.
