Rubbing the roast with Cajun seasoning before placing the meat in the slow cooker imparts great peppery flavor to every forkful.

Prep Time: 25 mins
Total Time: 10 hrs 25 mins
Servings: Makes 6 servings.

1 2- to 2-1/2-pound boneless beef chuck pot roast2 to 3 teaspoons Cajun seasoning* 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 14-1/2-ounce can Cajun-style or Mexican-style stewed tomatoes 1 cup chopped onion1 cup chopped celery 1/4 cup quick-cooking tapioca 1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic or 2 cloves garlic, minced Hot cooked rice
1 Trim fat from roast. Cut roast to fit in crockery cooker, if necessary. Rub Cajun seasoning all over meat. In a large skillet brown meat on all sides in hot oil.
2 In a 3-1/2- to 4-quart crockery cooker combine undrained tomatoes, onion, celery, tapioca, and garlic. Place meat on top of vegetable mixture.
3 Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 10 to 12 hours or on high-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours.
4 Slice meat; serve with sauce over rice. Makes 6 servings.

Look for Cajun seasoning in the spice section of your supermarket. Or, to make your own, mix together 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt, 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon ground red pepper, and 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper.

This mildly spiced meat and sauce also make a delicious hot sandwich. Using two forks, shred any leftover meat. Combine the shredded beef and remaining sauce in a storage container; cover and freeze for up to 3 months. When ready to eat, thaw mixture overnight in the refrigerator. Pour into a saucepan and heat through. Serve on hard rolls with sliced tomato and sliced green onion.
