"This is the easiest meal you'll ever make. Being a mom of 8 and working I wanted to find something I can make for dinner with no effort. Start your roast in the morning before going to work it will be done when you get home. You don't even have to defrost the roast. If it is a defrosted roast, put it in around noon, it will be done at 5pm. I've had so many people ask for my recipe, and this is the first time I've let it out of my kitchen. Serve with corn tortillas, lettuce, cheese, and any other toppings you prefer."

Yes, you really do put it in frozen! Chuck roasts work too, but NOT English-cut roasts (too fatty). This is just excellent, a favorite of our family - which includes 2 toddlers. I do modify i...

Ok, I just finished serving these tacos to my family and wow...I mean WOW! What's better than throwing a hunk of frozen meat into the crockpot with a few other ingredients and leaving for the d...

Turned out wonderfully. I used a bottle of Corona instead of white wine. I also recommend adding just enough water to cover the roast completely. Great recipe.
