Crockpot Roast With Ancho Chilis

Calories 0kcal
Author Mommypotamus


  • 4 lbs beef roast (grass-fed if possible)
  • tbs unrefined sea salt
  • 3-5 dried ancho chilies (seeded and torn into little pieces - I find that using three produces a heat range typically comfortable for small children.)
  • 4 large onions (peeled and quartered)
  • 3 garlic cloves (crushed)
  • 1 tbs thyme
  • 1 tbs dried parsley
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 cup chicken broth (or substitute water)


  • Rub salt on the roast and place it in the crockpot to rest for 1/2 to 1 hour (this improves the tenderness of the meat).
  • In the meantime, chop onions, dice chili's, peel and crush garlic, get your stock ready and pull the spices off the rack.
  • When the roast has rested, place remaining ingredients in the crockpot and cook on low for 7-8 hours, or until tender.
  • Remove roast from crock pot and, if desired, make gravy with the ancho chili liquid. Here's how. (Note: I prefer to use arrowroot powder instead of cornstarch)
  • Enjoy!
