31 Days of Slow Cooker Meals: Goulash

Slow Cooker Goulash

Goulash…what is goulash really?! I have this impression of goulash from what we used to make in when I lived in the Dominican Republic…an impression of ‘just dump whatever veggie in with the meat and toss in some kind of sauce and done. Goulash. I have no idea where that impression came from…but it stuck. It’s not really that, but sorta that.

Anyways, here is my slow cooker version. It’s delicious!

Shredded Beef Tacos with Mango-Avocado Salsa

Shredded Beef Tacos with Mango Avocado Salsa Recipe | 5DollarDinners.com

This is not the first time that I’ve shared a recipe with the mango-avocado combination and it probably won’t be the last. There’s the Grilled Chicken with Mango-Avocado Salsa. There’s the salad version with goat cheese and vinaigrette (which I have for lunch several days a week!). And there’s the pasta version, with Orzo too.

It might because all 4 of the boys will eat mangos and avocados. And ask for more. Or it might be that I just love the combination of a sweet ripe mango with a tender ripe avocado. Toss in a little lime juice, cilantro, salt and pepper and get the taco party started y’all!

This is a basic beef roast in the slow cooker…then top with fresh fruits kind of deal, simple, simple, simple. That’s the name of my cooking game friends!

Shredded Beef Tacos with Mango-Avocado Salsa

Yield – 4 servings

Preparation Time – 15 minutes

Cooking Time - 8 hours in slow cooker

Ingredients

  • 1+ pound beef roast, chuck roast or sirloin roast (whatever is on sale!)
  • 1 lime, squeezed or 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp salt and pepper, each
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 mango, seeded and diced
  • 2 small avocados, seeded and diced
  • 1 lime, squeezed or 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • Small bunch of cilantro, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Tortillas – flour or corn
  • Side dish ideas ~ corn on the cob, tex-mex style rice, refried beans (if you have 2 slow cookers!)

Directions

  • Place the beef roast in the slow cooker. Squeeze the lime juice over the top, then sprinkle with cumin, salt and pepper on top as well. Carefully pour the water around the beef roast. (I like to add water so that the environment inside the slow cooker stays nice and moist…I think it makes for more tender beef!) Set on low and cook for 8 hours. Once cooked, shred it with 2 forks.
  • Before dinner, mix up the mangoes, avocados, lime juice, cilantro and salt and pepper together in a bowl.
  • Add the slow cooked beef into the tortillas and top with the mang0-avocado salsa.
  • Prepare side dishes.
  • Serve Shredded Beef Tacos with Mango Avocado Salsa & preferred side dishes.
    

31 Days of Slow Cooker Meals: Sweet Potato & Chicken Curry

Slow Cooker Sweet Potato and Chicken Curry | 5DollarDinners.com

More chicken curry meals in the slow cooker. This meal is actually a regular part of our family rotation. The list of meals that we have repeatedly is very short, given that we are always trying new recipes for the website. But this one has been on the list for a few years and will remain. Mainly because everyone at the table polishes their plate. It’s rare for that to happen in a family with 4 little people who have distinct preferences. Perhaps this will be your family’s new regular meal?! Give it a try!
