Cowboy Pot Roast - Dee Dee's
Diane Hopson Smith
This recipe is adapted from my 2005 Southern Living Annual Cookbook.
The original recipe calls for a 2 1/2 to 3 pound eye of round roast, I selected a 2 1/2 lb sirloin steak. The recipe calls for a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies, I used diced tomatoes with Habaneros. The original also called to drain the 15.5 ounce can of tomatoes, I did NOT drain. And, it called for cooking on high in a slow cooker for 5 to 6 hours, I prepared this dish on top of the stove in a cast iron dutch oven for about 2 hours.
Hope you enjoy!

How to Make Cowboy Pot Roast - Dee Dee's
- Remove steak from Dutch Oven, and cut into larger than bit size chunks; skim any fat from the Dutch Oven.
- Mash 1 1/2 cans of the pinto beans and add to the Dutch Oven; add steak chucks and stir until combined.
- Smimmer on med-low for an additional 10 minutes.
- NOTE: This is a very thick hearty dish. The heat in this dish is entirely up to you. I used a can of HOT Diced Tomatoes with Habaneros. This was pretty spicy! We served this over rice and had a slice of cornbread with it. YUMMY! Also, you could add cummin and garlic and come up with a really nice Chili.
