Oh, great – we got 3 crockpots for our wedding.  Fantastic, I don’t even know what to do with one crockpot vs. three!  Well, never fear, MarinateMeBaby is here!  All kidding aside, everyone of us had to learn how to cook.  We have all had to learn to utilize different equipment and cooking techniques, we hear you.

Here at Marinate Me Baby we try to provide you recipes that are easy yet yield an amazing amount of flavor.  This is one of those recipes.  Crockpots or otherwise known and sold as Slow cooker’s have had a bad wrap in the past.  The knock was they turned out bland, and un-eye appealing food.  Once you follow these simple recipes – you will find your family asking for 2nd’s and you’ll get requests like, “When are you going to make that spicy roast again?”

This roast is a roasted, garlic, chipotle masterpiece.  It couldn’t be easier.  I have followed the recipe to a T and the above picture is what I was able to yield.  I have also cooked it 2 more hours and used my meat rakes and turned it into the most amazing tacos, shredded beef enchiladas, and sandwich meat.  I am confident that you will also find so many different applications for this home run.

From book Southwest Slow Cooking


  • 3-5 Pound round roast
  • 6 Cloves garlic (cut into halves)
  • 2 10-oz cans diced tomatoes (undrained)
  • 2 chipotles in adobo sauce (seeded and chopped)
  • 2 Tablespoons adobo sauce
  • fresh cilantro


Step 1
Place the roast on a cutting board. Make 12 cuts, about 1-inch deep, in a random scatter approach on the top of the roast. Insert the halves of the garlic cloves into each cut, making sure that the garlic is pushed into the roast as far as it will go. Place the roast in the slow cooker. Then add the diced tomatoes with their juice, the chopped chipotles, and the adobo sauce. Cover and then cook on low for 8 hours.
Step 2
Remove the roast from the slow cooker and slice carefully across the grain with a serrated knife. Place the beef slices on a serving platter and drizzle the tomato-chipotle sauce from the slow cooker over the top. Garnish with cilantro sprigs. This is excellent with a a side of rosemary potatoes and a side salad.
