Slow-Cooker Espresso-Sriracha Roast Beef
cup vegetable or beef broth
tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
tablespoon sriracha sauce
tablespoons instant espresso powder
3-lb boneless chuck tender roast
Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)
box (13.75 oz) Betty Crocker™ Mashed Potato Mix , made according to package directions for 4 to 6 servings (optional)
In a small bowl, combine broth, tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, sriracha sauce, espresso powder and minced garlic.
Place roast in slow cooker. Pour espresso-sriracha sauce over roast. Cover and cook on LOW 6 to 7 hours until cooked through and tender.
Transfer roast from slow cooker to a rimmed baking sheet; reserve sauce. Use two forks to pull apart meat into shreds. Place baking sheet under broiler for 3-4 minutes until edges of meat are crispy.
Return meat to slow cooker with sauce. Serve with sauce over mashed potatoes and sprinkled with chopped fresh parsley, if desired.
- For added heat/spice, double or even triple the amount of sriracha called for in the recipe.
