Salsa Verde Beef

Posted By Jessica Fisher On August 19, 2009 @ 2:04 pm In Meal Planning | 4 Comments

Sometimes my experiments in the kitchen go awry. I think up a good idea, but then upon execution, it hops off the track and the train wreck of a meal results in a trip to McDonalds or PB&J all around. Ugh, I say.

However, sometimes that doesn’t happen and we’re all so suprised and happy. Twice in the last two weeks I’ve seen great success with this recipe for Salsa Verde Beef [5]. It is amazingly easy and very inexpensive. It was so good I had to make it again soon so I could share it with you.

The first week we had it in chili. About an hour before serving, I stirred 5 cups of cooked pinto beans [6] into the crockpot and we ate it as Chili Burritos [7]. The crowd talked about it long after the dishes were done, so I knew I could make it again without fear.

(I’m being serious. I’ve had a mutiny on my hands at the dinnertable before.)

Then this week, I made Salsa Verde Beef [5] with a 3 pound roast (instead of 2#) and served it as tacos. Yummy! It was even good in a taco salad the next day. Definitely NOT a train wreck, this recipe works for me [8]!

Do you experiment in the kitchen? How does it go? Any successes?
