This filling meal takes 30 minutes to prepare, and 3 hours to cook. Cook it on top of the stove in a large covered saucepan or Dutch oven. The kick comes from the Rotel Tomatoes with green chilies, and from the type of BBQ seasoning you use. If you want less spice, use regular diced tomatoes without the chilies. You can serve it over rice, buttered egg noodles, or in tortillas. It travels well in a crockpot if you want to bring it to a party.


Select ingredients:


  1. In medium bowl mix the flour and chili seasoning.
  2. Cut the chuck roast in quarters and dredge chuck roast in flour mixture.
  3. Heat oil in Dutch oven or large saucepan.
  4. Brown chuck roast in pan for 3 minutes on each side. Remove from pan.
  5. Sautee onion and garlic for 3 minutes in same pan
  6. Add both cans of tomatoes, chopped green pepper and black beans. Stir to mix.
  7. Arrange meat on top of the vegetables. Pour as much beer as you can over the meat, but make sure you can still put the lid on the pan. Bring to a simmer and cook for 1 hour. Stir and cook for another hour or two, stirring occasionally, until meat can be shredded with a fork.
  8. If there is too much liquid, remove lid and let evaporate during the last hour. Serve over rice, buttered noodles or on a tortillas. Can be garnished with sour cream or Greek yogurt. Bon Appetite!
