Serve this flavorful and juicy beef over mashed potatoes, cauliflower rice, mashed cauliflower, a side of salad, roasted veggies, or anything you’d like. It’s naturally low carb, but versatile for the entire family.
Easy Salsa Pot Roast Recipe
There’s not even a recipe here! Just pick up these 2 items at the store:
- 3-4 pound beef chuck roast
- 1 (16oz) jar of salsa
You can additionally season the meat a bit with a little salt, pepper, or garlic powder. The ultimate flavor will greatly depend on the salsa you choose. We used the Pace Restaurant Style Salsa and it turned out amazing.
We also really enjoyed this pot roast over creamy mashed cauliflower to keep it low carb and keto friendly. If you’re not watching your carbs, you can pick up one of those store-bought packs of mashed potatoes for the easiest dinner you’ll ever make.
Just dump the salsa over your roast, cover with the lid, and cook on LOW for 4-8 hours depending on the ACTUAL temperature of your slow cooker. Mine cooks really fast on low! A 3 pound roast only takes about 4 hours in mine, but I think 6-8 hours is more typical.
If the beef is done, it will shred very easily. We just pull the roast out onto a large cutting board and use a couple of forks to tear it apart, and then place it back in the crockpot with all of the delicious juices.
This pot roast is not only incredibly easy to make, it's insanely delicious! Just dump a beef chuck roast into your crockpot with your favorite jar of salsa, and you've got the best family dinner recipe for busy weeknight meals.

Place the beef roast into your slow cooker and pour the jar of salsa over top. You can also sprinkle in a little salt, pepper, or garlic powder if you'd like.
Place the lid on and cook on LOW for 4-8 hours. My CrockPot cooks extremely fast, so it only takes about 4 hours in mine, but 6-8 hours is more typical.
When the roast is done it will shred very easily with a few forks. It may be easier to pull the roast out and shred it on a cutting board while removing any unwanted fat, and then place it back in your slow cooker and mix with the juices.
