Tequila Lime Roast in the Slow Cooker #Recipe

Hey ya’all, Danielle here again! I have a confession: I’m totally addicted to my slowcooker! For us busy women (or men), it’s just a huge lifesaver. Throw a bunch of stuff in then forget about it a few hours, resulting in a delicious, homemade dinner? I’ll take it! This Tequila Lime Roast was so simple, and hubby loved it for his Father’s Day dinner!

Since my hubby and I are huge foodies, I get kind of nervous on holidays that revolve around him, such as his birthday or Father’s Day. I would hate to ruin a meal on his special day! This year for Father’s Day he wanted a tender and juicy roast with lots of flavor. I automatically thought of using tequila, and went from there to make this so dang juicy and fall-apart amazing!

Honestly, I never used tequila for a red meat before, so was a bit hesitant to try it. I couldn’t believe the flavor, though! Seriously, this will have you begging for seconds (or thirds, as he did)! The other wonderful part? Slow-cooker = super easy for you!

    Wow very unique and different flavor from what my family is use to but we love to try new recipes. And I love slow cooker recipes, the meat is always so tender and soft. And you can set it in the slow cooker and do other things, huge time saver.

    I’ve never come across a Recipe with Tequila and Roast in the same recipe. The fact that you cook it in a Slow Cooker is even better. This Roast looks so delicious – it makes your mouth water. I pinned it to my Food Board so I wouldn’t lose the recipe so I could share it with my Mom. Thanks.
