Crockin' Good Shredded Jalapeno Beef Roast
Diane Hopson Smith
So much you can do with this shredded meat! Use in a salad, fold up in a warm tortilla, make taco's, burrito's, enchiladas or make a gravy and serve over rice or mashed taters!
Make several different meals during the week and no one will be the wiser that you didn't slave in the kitchen all day.
Hope you enjoy and find many uses for this shredded roast.

7Serve over rice topped with a mushroom gravy.
I added sauteed onions and peppers to the shredded meat and heated in skillet over medium heat until good and warm. I made gravy using McCormicks "Au Jus Gravy" mix, adding 3 talblespoon all-purpose flour to mix and 3 cups of water (directions on back of mix).
