This is so good and easy. A delicious Mexican meal that cooks in a crockpot – 2 of my favorite things. I adapted the recipe from The Ungourmet.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Salsa Verde Steak in the Slow Cooker
- 2-3 lbs. boneless round steak or another cut of beef
- 1 small can of salsa verde
- 1/2 cup chicken broth beef broth or water
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- 1 tsp. cumin
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 1 onion sliced
- flour tortillas
- cheddar cheese
- lettuce tomato, sour cream etc
- Put the steak and onions in the crockpot.
- Combine the salsa, broth and seasonings. Pour over the steak.
- Cook on high for 5-6 hours or low for 7-8 hours.
- Shred the meat and serve in the tortillas with the fixings.

This sounds so good and easy. Something I can use a lot of at this point in the holidays.
I hadn’t thought of doing mexican in the slow cooker – I always do pot roast – now I have a new easy idea to make dinner 🙂 Thanks!
This looks great! Thanks for all the yummy recipes, I was getting in a rut.
Like you I’m a homeschool mom. That means my kiddos are home for lunch. I’m curos what do you do for breakfast and lunch?
Anita, we keep it very simple for breakfast. Toast or oatmeal usually. Occasionally we do pancakes or muffins. For lunch we eat up the dinner leftovers or there’s always grilled cheese, cheese tacos, peanut butter or lunch meat. Sometimes I make soup or scrambled eggs. Every once in a while we have bagels and yogurt. I let the kids choose from what we’ve got. It’s pretty simple around here 🙂
Sounds like you do breakfast and lunch the same as I do. Have you ever done a run down on staples and considered putting a stables grocery list together. I’ve thought about it, but haven’t had the time to.

I just love the recipes you post-easy and yet still so yummy!!! Thanks-will make this tomorrow!
I can’t wait to try this. I am 4 months pregnant and finally want to eat again. The only thing I want is mexican food!!
This looks delicious and sounds as if it is calorie friendly. I’m definitely going to try it.
This sounds really yummy! I will definitely have to try this out.
I made this (with pork chops) for dinner the other night. My husband loved it. I served it with rice and a salad. He said it was a definite DO AGAIN! Thanks so much for all your ideas. We are actually accomplishing one of our New Year’s resolutions….to eat at home almost every night. THANK YOU!
I made this with bison sirloin steaks! Was very tasty! My kids loved it. Will definitely make it again. It is a lot lower in fat and calories with bison, something to think about. Wish I lived closer to my sister, Tiffany, and I could sample all these tasty recipes she posts!!

This recipe looks wonderful! I was wondering how much meat I should use for it though? I have 2 1lb round steaks, should I use both or just one?
Jessica, 2 lbs. of meat would work well. You can always freeze the leftovers.
Yum! I’m ready to eat this for lunch right now and it’s only 9 AM. 😉
I just put a frozen chuck roast in the crockpot to have this tomorrow night. I’ll add the onions tomorrow..hopefully it works out well that way!
Thanks for a fun unique recipe for the crockpot :o)
I have mine cooking now. Can’t wait to try it.
Perfect, I defrosted some steak last night and had no clue what I was going to do with it. Putting this together now. Looks yummy. Thanks!
This might be an ignorant question, but is the steak frozen or thawed when placed in the crock pot?
Abbie, I usually thaw steak a little bit in the microwave, but not all the way. It will work either frozen or thawed.
Can I use salsa instead of salsa verde?
Yes, it will be a little different but will still be good.
