    This slow cooker mojo beef and rice is an incredibly flavorful slow cooker meal that is melt-in-your-mouth delicious! Full of citrus flavor and a hint of spice! #HuntsDifference #ad

    I’m always on the hunt for flavorful and easy slow cooker recipes because I’m a huge fan of throwing something into a pot and letting it do all the work. I haven’t whipped out my pressure cooker yet but I’m sure this recipe for slow cooker mojo beef and rice would work just wonderfully in a pressure cooker.

    Not only do I love the simplicity of slow cooker recipes, I do love all the flavors melding together for hours on end. Nothing beats coming home from a long day at work and having your dinner practically begging you to devour it! Haha, that is one of many ways to be a winner in my book ;)

    This slow cooker mojo beef and rice recipe is one of those recipes where there’s a lot of tang initially because of the marinade but it totally mellows out as it cooks. It’s got a lot of citrus in it and it would pair so well with a mojito or margarita or two!

    I also used some Hunt’s Organic Diced Tomatoes in this recipe. I mainly used the diced tomatoes to top my individual bowl but I did add a bit into the marinade itself to give it some more flavor! I love that Hunt’s tomatoes has so many varieties of tomatoes out there, including their organic line. We all are very conscious of what we put in our bodies these days so the organic line is a great addition to the Hunt’s tomato family.

    Instead of using chemicals, like lye* Hunt’s peels all its diced, whole, and stewed tomatoes using steam from simple hot water (the process is called FlashSteam™), and it means that no chemical by-products get put back into the earth! Hunt’s tomato products are 100% natural and non-GMO, with no artificial preservatives. The tomatoes are all grown in California, too! Knowing this about Hunt’s makes me feel good about serving these meals made with Hunt’s tomatoes to myself, family, and friends!

    Ingredients

    • 2 pounds chuck roast
    • 1 1/2 cups fresh orange juice
    • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
    • 1/3 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
    • 10 garlic cloves, coarsely mince
    • Fresh oregano, coarsely chopped
    • 2 jalapenos, de-seeded and coarsely chopped
    • 1/2 cup Hunt's organic diced tomatoes
    • Kosher salt

    Instructions

    • Put the chuck roast into a large, resealable plastic bag.
    • In a measuring glass, add the orange juice, lemon juice, lime juice, garlic cloves, oregano, and jalapenos. Whisk.
    • Add the liquid to the plastic bag with the chuck roast then add the diced tomatoes. Close and seal the plastic bag, shake and rub the marinade around the roast then place in a container (just to make sure if it leaks, it doesn't leak all over your fridge) and place in the refrigerator overnight or at least 8 hours.
    • After marinading, add everything in the plastic bag into the slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours.
    • Shred chuck roast then with a slotted spoon, scoop out beef and place in a thin layer on a large baking sheet covered with foil. Keep the liquid.
    • Broil in the oven on high for 7-10 minutes (watching it carefully). This step is optional but I love the crispy burnt edges it gives and really brings out the flavor!
    • Serve shredded beef over white rice and spoon extra liquid on top.

  • Teresa says:

    How much fresh oregano did you use?

    • Julie says:

      Oh sorry! I used about 3-4 sprigs and pull the leaves off and chop!

  • Paulette Gleason says:

    I am renting a home in Fl. and they do not have a crock pot, but they do have a large soup pot. I think I could slow cook this in the oven for 8 hrs at 250 or 300 degrees. I am going to try it for my Granddaughters Birthday.

    • Julie says:

      That’s a great idea and alternative, Paulette! I hope it worked out for you.

  • Anna says:

    I appreciate you posting this recipe. I was really excited to try it. It’s a great concept, but after I fixed it I realized how much it was lacking. It needs some grazy or something to punch up flavor. It just wasn’t for me!

  • De says:

    What size crock pot would you recommend? Would this fit in a 3 or 4 qt crockpot, or does it need the big 6qt one?

    • Julie says:

      Mine was a 6 qt. but you can do a 4 qt…it will fit :)

  • Dawn Kragelund says:

    This is amazing! I didn’t marinade it but threw everything in crockpot. I had wanted to marinade but kept forgetting during my busy days. It still came out full of flavor. You are so right about the crisping up in oven! Perfection! I matched this with cuban rice with black beans. Made burritos w strained sauce left in crockpot. Putting this in my rotation for my big fam. Thx!

    • Julie says:

      Sounds so good!!

  • Moses Brodin says:

    Love this recipe! We use it quite often. I double the carrots and celery and add minced onion flakes to it and use Uncle Ben’s Wild Rice. After a couple hours check it to see if it needs a little bit more water added.
