Try-It-Tuesday Mango Chipotle Roast

We tried a recipe from Semi Homemade with Sandra Lee this past weekend and man was it yummy. It's definitely a "have again" meal!

I did do things just a bit different than she suggest so I'll add my two-bits in parenthesis.


1 3- to 4-pound boneless beef chuck roast (I would salt and pepper and seer this next time.)
1 tablespoon Montreal steak seasoning, McCormick® (I found a chipotle flavored one.)
1 package (16-ounce) frozen mango chunks, Dole® (I used dried, found by the raisins in store.)
2 medium red bell peppers, sliced into 1/2-inch strips
1 medium onion, sliced
1 jar (16-ounce) chipotle salsa, Pace® (I found a pineapple, mango, chipotle flavored salsa.)
1 can (11.5-ounce) mango nectar, Kern's® (This is by the non refrigerated juices, comes in a pop can type can.)

Hot cooked orzo or egg noodles (optional)


Directions

Sprinkle roast with steak seasoning. (And salt and pepper, we found it really tasted so much better with a little bit added.)
In a 5-quart slow cooker, combine mango, bell peppers, and onion. Place roast on top of fruit and vegetables.
In a small bowl, combine salsa and mango nectar. Pour over roast.
Cover and cook on LOW heat setting for 8 to 10 hours.
Transfer roast and 1/2 of the mango and vegetables to a serving platter. Cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.
Transfer remaining mixture in slow cooker to a blender. Cover; place a kitchen towel over lid. Blend until smooth.* (We put some of the reserved juice in a pot and boiled it a few minutes to let it thicken and reduce. Was delish!)

Serve with hot cooked orzo or egg noodles (optional). (We used orzo and I absolutely love the combo!)
