This Green Chili Braised Beef recipe will be in your weekly rotation because it’s that easy and that delicious! It is made with 5 minutes of prep and a frozen roast. FROZEN! Not even thawed. This is so easy!

This is a dump and bake slow cooker recipe at its finest! You could prepare this dish in a slow cooker or a Dutch oven, or even a glass dish with a lid or inverted sheet tray (like I did here!). Most important thing is low and slow and keep it covered throughout cooking time.


Juice of 1 orange
Juice of 1 lime
Torn cilantro
1 generous handful
Green enchilada sauce
1 jar (15 oz)
Chopped pickled jalapeños
8oz (or more)
oasted green chiles
1 can (4 oz)
2 tsp for 2.5 lb roast. Go a bit less than 1 tsp per lb of meat if you are using an alternative cut
Cracked black pepper


  • Dutch oven or glass dish with lid


Preheat oven to 300°F.

Add all ingredients to a Dutch oven or glass dish with a lid.

Bake for 5 hours or so until fork tender.

Shred up, discarding excess fat (and snack on the marrow!). Use it for tacos or anything else, really. Enjoy!

P.S. Use a slow cooker instead if you want, but I don’t know the exact time. Low and slow until fork tender.
