This easy Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Beef is the perfect filling for tacos, burritos, and rice bowls and is perfect for meal prep.
I don't know about you, but this October has been crazy. While I normally can't wait for fall and all the cozy sweaters, pumpkin drinks, and chilly relaxing nights, for some reason this year it's been so incredibly busy. Every night it feels like the day is over before it even began. So to make things a little easier, I have been focusing on meal prep and making lots of multi-purpose dishes like this Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Beef. Essentially all it takes is some lean beef and store-bought salsa verde. You could stop right there, but I like to doctor my salsa up a bit with fresh onion, jalapenos, garlic, and spices. It makes it taste more homemade and since store bought salsa is never spicy enough for me, it kicks things up a bit. The after 8 hours in the slow cooker, you have fork tender beef that is packed with flavor and makes the perfect protein for quick and easy meals all week. Make tacos, tostadas, burritos, rice bowls, quesadillas, a a scramble (it's so good with eggs), or a kicked up beef stew with some added beef broth, beans, and veggies.
