Lime Rice Beef

This is a recipe a friend gave to me months ago. She raved about it and said it has been passed around a lot. I am so thankful she shared this recipe, it is awesome! I love when I find a good slow cooker recipe. The beef has incredible flavor that is great to eat just plain...paired with the lime rice makes this a very unique dish. The beef is served with the rice on tortillas, but would be fine just served on the rice. -Kristin

2-3#'s chuck roast
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 t. pepper
1/2 t. salt
1 t. chili powder
1 T. mustard
1/2 c. ketchup
1 t. beef bouillon
1 c. salsa
1 can black beans, drained

1 c. white rice
2 c. water
1/2 T. butter
1 t. salt
juice from 2 limes

shredded cheddar cheese
sour cream

  • Place all ingredients in the first list into slow cooker and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Shred beef when done cooking with 2 forks.
  • When ready to eat, place the rice, water, butter and salt in saucepan. Bring to boil, reduce to a simmer and cook till water is all absorbed. About 15 minutes.
  • Turn off heat and stir in the juice from the limes. If the rice is too juicy just simmer for a minute or so and the juice will absorb.
  • Serve on a tortilla with the rice, beef, cheese and sour cream.
