20 Go-To Beef Roast Recipes

20 Go-To Beef Roast Recipes

It is the time of year when grills get used less and less and slow roasting beef roasts happens more and more. So, since I have started searching for the beef roast recipes my family loves as well as a few new ones, I thought I would share 20 go-to beef roast recipes I plan on making sometime soon as well as a few pointers.

  1. Go buy a Crock Pot. Slow Cooker.
  2. When you are making a recipe that calls for a specific kind of roast, most of the time it can be interchangeable. For example, if the recipe calls for a chuck roast but you have a rump roast, as long as the pounds are similar go for it.
  3. Do Not trim all the fat off the beef roast before cooking it. Fat is a flavor conductor. You can peel the fat off after it cooks and also drain any fat off for gravy if you need it. Trust me, keep the fat on!
  4. Go for bone-in roasts. I think bones also add more flavor. After a beef roast has slow cooked all day, the bone falls right off the meat. So go ahead and buy that bone-in roast. No need to pay extra for having it removed. So, now onto the recipes!

Texas Queso Dip

Sometimes it is an eat chips and queso kind of day. This crock pot Texas Queso Dip is not that different from the Sausage Queso I have shared before. The main difference is spicy or hot seasoned sausage instead of ground pork or mild pork sausage.

Texas Queso DipThe recipe is out of the 303 Simple & Satisfying Recipes from Gooseberry Patch. And it is a cinch.

Simply brown a pound of hamburger. If you want to do it quick, be sure to check out my quick tip on browning hamburger. Just place a two-pound block of Velveeta, a can of tomatoes and chiles (or a can of diced tomatoes plus a can of chiles like I did) along with a half a cup of milk.

Crock Pot Texas Queso Dip

Just let the mixture cook on low for two hours in a slow cooker or crock pot. Stir occasionally to avoid it burning around the edges. Serve with tortilla chips.

Crock Pot Chipotle Shredded Beef

Naturally when I am reviewing a new cookbook I am drawn to the Mexican inspired recipes. When the recipe includes a beef roast and a crock pot, I am sold. Gonna try the recipe. This crock pot chipotle shredded beef did not disappoint anyone in the family.

slow cooked chipotle shredded beefThe recipe called for a chuck roast, but here is the deal, use whatever beef roast you have on hand or is on sale at the grocery story. It will all work the same. Place the beautiful beef roast in the crock pot.

beef chuck roast in crock pot

The original recipe called for cans of diced tomatoes, green chiles and chipotle sauce. I however had enchilada sauce instead of chipotle. It also called for chili powder and cumin. I had Penzey’s Chili 9000 which has cumin and other yummy seasonings and herbs. So, I used two tablespoons of it instead. Topped the roast with sliced onions and the canned goods before letting it slow cook all day. I omitted the beef broth the recipe called for originally.

Chipotle Beef Ingredients

After it has slow cooked all day, you should be able to peel any excess fat off the roast and then shred with two forks. Don’t trim the fat before cooking. Remember fat is the flavor conductor. You want it to cook with the meat all day to add flavor.

 The meat should be fairly juicy. Which made me relieved that I didn’t add the two cups of beef broth. You will get quite a bit of beef. This is a great recipe to eat twice.

The cooked meat will freeze nicely to pull out later or go ahead and make some beef enchiladas and use the meat for tacos or on top of Mexican Risotto.

Hunk of Meat Monday: Bowtie Pasta and Sausage

Have you ever become obsessed with something? So obsessed it makes the people you life with crazy. This bowties and sausage recipe brings to light two obsessions in the Beyer household: a pot and smoked sausage.

Bowties and sausage | Beyer BewareThe pot is my obsession. It is the Le Creuset Enameled Cast-Iron 3-1/2-Quart Round French Oven in cherry. Big enough for a one pot wonder for a family of 4 but small enough that I can actually lift it up with a meal in it. Obsessed. You may remember if you follow me on Instagram when I lost my mind at the Le Creuset outlet.
Le Creuset Outlet in South CarolinaAnd the smoked sausge…that would be my daughter. She is a healthy eater who finds higher end meats more desirable. I can’t say I blame her. Except for smoked sausage. She could eat her weight in smoked sausage. So, when I saw this recipe in the Good-For-You Everyday Meals Cookbook from Gooseberry Patch, I knew that at least one person in my family would be simply in love. And boy was I right. Big hit at the dinner table and once again it was a quick prep.

Simple ingredients with the smoked sausage, onions and peppers. Slice them all up and get them going in the skillet. Notice I have cheese filled sausage. Use what you like. All beef, jalapeño, skinless, not skinless, all will work just fine. Slice the sausage, pepper and onion up and get sautéing.

Sausage with onions and peppers While the sausage and veggies are cooking, get your pasta cooking. I have a favorite gluten free pasta that I used. The original recipe called for bowtie pasta. Again, use what you have on hand.

Quick Spicy Beef Burritos

We can all pretend that we are always ready to whip up a meal for our starving kids. But, after being on the road or on a plane for a month straight, I would rather everyone just make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

When I came across the recipe for quick spicy beef burritos in my latest Gooseberry Patch Cookbook I am reviewing on the way home from a week on the beach, I knew even my kicking and screaming bad attitude towards cooking right now could handle it.

Don’t we all have refried beans, diced tomatoes and chilies and taco seasoning in bulk? Or just me?

Of course, I always have literally hundreds of pounds of meat just laying around in one of my two chest freezers. I get the frozen pound of ground beef going with a quarter cup of diced onions.

If you are me and you are going with what you have, you will use run of the mill flour tortillas for the family.

Low-Carb Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

I love creamy casseroles in the winter time. The problem now is for the most part they have flour in the sauce or the pasta. But, this chicken cordon bleu casserole creation can be completely flour free.

Chicken Cordon Bleu gluten free

Now, of course, the bread crumbs I put on part of it have flour, but almond meal can be substituted for the bread crumbs or completely omitted. The sauce is a creamy, cheesy sauce that doesn’t have a lick of thickener in it. Simply mix cream cheese, butter, milk or cream and parmesan cheese together for the base of the sauce.

flourless alfredo sauceNow start layering the casserole. Start with shredded or cubed cook chicken. This is about 2 cups worth or 4-5 boneless skinless chicken thighs. Followed by 1 cup shredded swiss cheese. You can use monterey jack or mozzarella also. Then layer ham. The next time I make this, I will cut up the ham. Feel free to use cubed ham or lunch meat. Just make sure you cut the lunch meat up. Followed by the incredible sauce.

Cheesy Garlic and Brown Sugar Pork Chops

The only thing that may have made these baked pork chops better is a splash of bourbon. Inspired by the garlic brown sugar chicken recipe I make, the cheesy garlic and brown sugar pork chops were delicious and easy.

cheesy brown sugar garlic pork chopsI mentioned easy. The most complicated is dicing garlic. Honestly. A few simple steps and you are on the way to pork heaven. Season each side of the pork chops with brown sugar, garlic, salt and pepper with a dash of paprika and follow up with a drizzle of butter over the top of the pork chops. Use plenty of butter. Butter is a flavor conductor. It will run off and be left behind in the pan, but those pork chops will be juicy thanks to the butter.
