This easy, flavorful roast can be used to make shredded beef tacos, quesadillas, or simply eaten with mashed yams and sautéed dark leafy greens. For tacos, serve meat with homemade tortillas, guacamole, diced white onions, chopped radishes, chopped cilantro, and shredded cabbage. Use my oven directions below to slow-cook the roast for hours, or, if you have an Instant Pot, follow those directions instead to get this recipe done in 30 minutes! 

3 pounds beef chuck roast
1 small onions chopped
4 cloves garlic peeled
3 cups diced tomatoes
3 jalapeño peppers (or serrano peppers)
1 tablespoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 cups water
