This deliciously simple slow cooker beef chile verde is the perfect slow cooker main dish to feed a crowd!
- 2–3 pounds beef chuck
- 1 jar (12-16 oz) salsa verde or green enchilada sauce (try homemade or FODY Foods for low FODMAP)
- 1 can green chiles
- Salt & pepper – about 1/2 teaspoon of each
- Optional: 1 medium onion, sliced into wedges, 4 cloves minced garlic
- For serving: Mexican quick-pickled spicy carrots, sliced avocado, fresh cilantro, tortilla chips (I like Siete), cauliflower rice, limes
- Season the beef chuck all over with salt and pepper and place in the slow cooker.
- If using onions, slice into wedges and arrange around the beef in the slow cooker along with the minced garlic.
- Add the salsa verde or green enchilada sauce and the diced green chilis to the slow cooker, pouring them over the beef and onions to distribute evenly.
- Cover and cook over LOW heat for 8-12 hours until super tender.
- Shred the beef with two forks and serves as is, or in a number of ways: in quesadillas, as tacos, on nachos, or with eggs for breakfast!
My local Safeway has grass-fed beef chuck for $5.99 / pound, or grass-fed stew meat for $6.99 pound. I usually buy 100% grass-fed and grass-finished beef from Moink, which costs about $8.99 / pound. I usually buy salsa verde from Trader Joe’s for $1.99.
Nutrition label is for 2.5 pounds beef, 10 servings.
