Green Chile Shredded Beef Bowl with Avocado Salsa  

Ingredients for slow cooker beef:

3 pound chuck roast, well-trimmed of fat and cut into thick strips (can use a pre-cooked roast)

1 tablespoon taco or southwest seasoning

2 (4-ounce) cans diced green chilies with juice

 

Ingredients for cabbage slaw and dressing:

1 small head green cabbage, cut into very thin strips (can use a package of slaw mix)

1/2 small head red cabbage, cut into very thin strips

1/2 cup thinly sliced green onion

6 tablespoons mayo or light mayo

4 teaspoons fresh squeezed lime juice

2 teaspoons green tabasco sauce

 

Ingredients for avocado salsa:

2 large avocados, peeled and diced

1 medium Poblano pepper, diced very small

1 tablespoon fresh-squeezed lime juice

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro

 

 

  1. Rub strips of beef with the taco seasoning. Heat the oil in a large, heavy frying pan and brown the beef well on all sides. Put the strips of browned beef in the slow cooker and pour in the diced green chilies and juice from the cans. Cook on high for 3-4 hours, or until the beef shreds apart easily. (If you’re going to be out you can also cook this for 6-8 hours on low.) When the beef is done, use a large slotted spoon to remove it to a cutting board, leaving the liquid in the slow cooker. Shred the beef apart with two forks and put it back in the slow cooker to absorb the liquid and keep warm while you make the cabbage slaw and salsa. (If using a pre-cooked roast, place roast and juices along with taco seasoning and green chilies into a skillet and warm through).

 

  1. Place cabbage (or package of slaw mix), and green onions into bowl. Whisk together the mayo, lime juice and tabasco sauce to make the dressing. Toss to mix with cabbage mixture.
  2. Place all ingredients for salsa in bowl and toss lightly to mix.
  3. To assemble the bowl: place a layer of slaw, then a generous amount of spicy beef, topped by a couple of spoonful’s of avocado salsa.

Note: Grains such as brown rice or quinoa may be added to the bowl for extra flavor and nutrition! Additional vegetables, such as tomatoes, onions etc. may be added to your preference.
