Shredded Beef Tacos

Shredded Beef Tacos

3 pound rump roast
1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups salsa
1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning

In slow cooker, place roast. In medium bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Mix well. Pour over roast.
Cover. Cook on low 8 to 10 hours.

Remove roast to a cutting board. Shred using two forks. Place shredded beef in large bowl. Add 1/2 cup of liquid from the slow cooker.  Mix well.
 Serve with tortilla shells and your favorite taco toppings. Makes 12 to 15 tacos.
This recipe only takes a few minutes to make, as you run out the door to start your busy day.  When you return home, your house will be filled with the delicious aroma of a home cooked meal.  

The beef is tender and juicy, with lots of spicy Mexican flavor.  If you like things on the mild side, use mild salsa and mild taco seasoning.  You can even cut back on the amount of taco seasoning you use and replace part of the salsa with diced tomatoes if you like it extra mild.
We have two foreign exchange students living with us and they love quesadillas, so with the leftover beef that is what we made.  I served the remaining liquid from the slow cooker as a dipping sauce.
