Cowboy Pot Roast

I found this recipe and although I love cooking with my crock pot, I prefer my meat to be browned a bit.

So before putting in crock pot, I brown the meat and found that it enhances both the appearance and flavor of the meat.

This makes more into a "stew" than just a "roast".

How to Make Cowboy Pot Roast

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, and next 4 ingredients in a medium bowl. Sprinkle roast with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Brown roast on all sides in hot oil in a large dutch oven over medium-high heat. Transfer roast to a 5 quart slow cooker. Pour tomato mixture over roast. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours or until very tender.
  2. Remove roast from slow cooker, and cut into large chunks; keep warm.
  3. Skim fat from juices in slow cooker. Mash 1.5 cans of pinto beans; add to slow cooker, and stir until combined. Stir in black beans and remaining 1/2 can pinto beans. Add roast pieces back to slow cooker; cover and cook on HIGH 20 minutes more. Top each serving with jalapeno pepper slices, if desired.
