Tuesday's Chipotle Beef $9.66

Tonight's Biggest Loser night ... let's get ready to see our friend Jillian by spicing things up with this super easy crock pot cooking meal!  Adapted from Master Your Metabolism by Jillian Michaels.

Chipotle Beef
2.5 to 3 lbs beef chuck roast$ 3.99
1 tsp salt (or less).
1-2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 can low sodium beef broth (or 1 boullion cube & 1.5 cups water).69
1-7oz can Chipotle Peppers in Adobe Sauce $ 2.49

lettuce salad of your choosing
grand total: $ 9.66
Salt/Pepper meat, place in hot non-stick skillet and brown meat on all sides.
Put meat, beef flavoring (broth or boullion) and peppers in crockpot.  Put on low for all day or high for four hours.
Remove from spicy sauce, cool slightly, and slice against the grain into thin strips.
"Serve over lettuce for a delicious spicy salad that doesn't need dressing".

This is a spicy dish - if you are serving someone with spice aversions, like kids, you can use half a can of peppers, or you can serve the salad with either lowfat sour cream or ranch dressing on the meat.  We've enjoyed both!  Hope you do too!

  1. I've probably made this roast three, maybe five times before. Ellie has liked it, but had spice aversion ... Jacob, well, if I had a 10 foot long fork I might get it to his mouth - and Jenna, this is a "go bed now" type of meal. NOT TONIGHT MY FRIENDS... Jacob asked for seconds, and Ellie was ALL OVER IT! I can't believe how much meat they ate tonight. There's gonna be a left overs shortage on Saturday with this dinner! I think I like it when that happens!
