Shredded Salsa Beef over Rice by Jackie

**Recipe adapted from Don't Panic, Dinner's in the Freezer

1 1/2-2 lbs beef chuck roast
1 Tblsp. oil
1 onion, chopped
1 (4 oz.) can chopped green chilies
1 c. chunky salsa
2 Tblsp. brown sugar
1 Tblsp. soy sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2-1 c. water


Place oil in skillet and brown beef on all sides. Place beef in crockpot. Add remaining ingredients and enough water to barely cover roast. Cover. Cook on low 10-12 hours until beef is tender. Remove and shred, using 2 forks to pull apart. Return meat to crockpot and stir to combine meat and liquid. Cool. Freeze flat in Ziploc Gallon-size freezer bag. Freeze enough rice for 6 servings in Ziploc quart-size freezer bag.

Serving Day:
Thaw completely. Reheat slowly in pan. Serve over cooked rice (see directions below).

Directions for cooking rice on stove top: Pour contents of rice bag into pan with 3 1/3c. water. Add butter and salt if desired. Stir and bring to a boil. Lower heat to simmer. Cover and simmer 20 minutes or until all water is absorbed. Remove from heat and stand for 5 minutes.

Directions for cooking rice in microwave: Pour contents of rice bag into microwave safe container with 3 1/3c. water. Add butter and salt if desired. Stir and cover. Cook on MEDIUM (50%) power for 20-25 minutes. Remove from microwave and let stand for 5 minutes.

Serve as a filling for tacos, burritos, chalupas. Serve with your favorite taco toppings.


  1. Our family really loved this meal. I loved that all I had to do was reheat the meat, but it still tasted freshly cooked.

  2. We loved this meal. It lasted for 3...THREE meals! There was plenty for us. The last one we made burritos and the kids really loved that. Great flavor!

  3. Yummy! Next time, we will try this as burritos.

  4. I made this again using beef stew meat (cut into small pieces instead of shredded) and ChiChi's Corn and Black Bean Salsa. Served over rice with Mexican cheese sprinkled on top. It was sooo good! I think next time I may add some frozen corn and a can of black beans.
