I have made a recipe for shredded beef burritos in the crockpot, and was wondering if you thought it was any good? If so, how would you rate them? I have attached a picture of the finished product below. I have also included a recipe for the green sauce I used to serve with it.

Just a quick one here – a bit of a side note. I’m going to be going on a road trip next week, and I want to take a few things with me – a few different recipes. I wanted something quick and easy – a recipe I know my family will love – but also something that can be made ahead of time. I wanted it to be something that I could eat on the go – something that I could heat up whenever I want, but something that can be prepared in advance. So, I tried out the Crock-Pot shredded beef recipe from the Grilling Section over at All Recipes – and I have to say – it’s great! It’s so easy to prepare, and so tasty – it’s going to

When you need a quick meal to whip up, a Crock-Pot can help you out. But even though it’s a simple appliance, the results can be impressive. Here’s a recipe for a pork carnitas burrito that uses a little jar of salsa as the meat marinade. Once the pork has been shredded, you can mix it together with some cooked rice and beans for a filling meal that doesn’t take long to prepare..

I’m not sure there’s anything simpler than this shredded beef in the crockpot.

This is a version of a dish given to me by a friend’s mother during a ski vacation to Big Bear in the 1980s. Mrs. Loftus, thank you very much!

She added additional spices to the roast while it was cooking on the stove. I’ve discovered that jarred salsa has all of the spices I need. Add-ins like onions, cilantro, cheese, sour cream, salsa, olives, tomatoes, and other spices help to spice things up a little.

You can easily add refried beans to the burritos to stretch this shredded beef even farther!

This shredded beef dish has to be the simplest… ever. While the roast is in the crock-pot, add the salsa, and the final result will be properly seasoned. Wrap in a tortilla, top with any toppings you like, and eat!


  • 3 pound roast tri-tip (you can substitute with chuck, brisket, sirloin or bottom round)
  • 2 cups canned salsa of your choice (I had Pace Picante sauce available — it worked really well)
  • tortillas, sour cream, and cheese (and any other throw-ins that you like with your burrito)
  • a pinch of salt and pepper


The Tri-Tip cut appeals to me since it is extremely slim and waste-free. I tried grilling the beef before putting it in the crock-pot once. I omitted the searing step the second time and it didn’t appear to make a difference. I keep the wonderful juices from the roast for soups and stews after it’s done.


Step 1
Season the roast with salt and pepper before serving. In a crock-pot, combine all of the ingredients. Toss in some salsa. Cook on low for 8-10 hours, or until meat easily pulls apart.
Step 2
Remove the meat from the crock-pot and set it aside. Shred. To make your burrito, fill tortillas with meat, cheese, sour cream, and anything else you like. Fold and have fun!
