Ingredients & Cooking


  • 1 beef Shoulder Pot Roast, boneless (2-1/2 pounds)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) chipotle salsa
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
  • 12 flour tortillas (5 to 6 inch diameter)


  1. Heat oil in stockpot over medium heat until hot. Place beef Shoulder Pot Roast in stockpot; brown evenly. Pour off drippings; season with salt and pepper, as desired.
  2. Add broth and garlic to stockpot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover tightly and simmer 2-1/4 to 2-1/2 hours or until roast is fork-tender.
  3. Remove roast; cool slightly. Skim fat from cooking liquid; reserve liquid. Trim and discard excess fat from cooked roast. Shred roast with 2 forks. Combine shredded roast and salsa in 3-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes or until heated through, stirring frequently, adding enough reserved cooking liquid (up to 1/2 cup) to maintain a moist consistency, if necessary. Stir in cilantro, if desired. Serve mixture with warmed flour tortillas.
