(For Friday Favorites we spotlight past recipes that you may have missed, and I think this Slow Cooker Red Chile Beef with homemade red chile sauce sounds delicious any time of year.  You can serve this in a tortilla, or eat the meat alone for a lower carb meal.)

Everyone who loves from-scratch recipes will love how this Slow Cooker Red Chile Beef by From Scratch to Plate uses a sauce that starts with dried red chiles that are soaked in water and pureed and then cooked with garlic, cumin, and salt for an authentic Mexican flavored sauce.  You can make the sauce while the chuck roast cooks all day in the slow cooker, or make the sauce the night before, cook the meat all day while you're at work, and shred the beef apart and heat with the sauce when it's time for dinner.

Ingredients for this recipe:
  • Boneless chuck roast
  • beef stock
  • dried New Mexico chiles
  • olive oil
  • garlic
  • cumin
  • salt
