Servings and Ingredients

Serves 6
1 ½ lbs. boneless beef chuck shoulder roast, trimmed
Hy-Vee salt
Hy-Vee ground black pepper
1 tbsp. Hy-Vee Italian seasoning
1 (12-oz.) jar Hy-Vee mild banana pepper rings, drained
1 c. Hy-Vee Short Cuts tri-color bell peppers
1 c. Hy-Vee Short Cuts chopped white onion
1 c. baby carrots
1 c. Hy-Vee gluten-free beef broth
4 c. Hy-Vee Short Cuts cauliflower rice
Hy-Vee Short Cuts sliced green onions

Things To Grab

  • 3-to-4-quart slow cooker
  • Large skillet
  • 4 serving plates or airtight containers
  • Ladle


  1. Place beef with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning in a 3-to-4-quart slow cooker. Add banana peppers, bell peppers, white onion, carrots, and beef broth. Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 hours or LOW for 8 hours, or until meat is tender.

  2. Sauté cauliflower rice with a few teaspoons of water in a large skillet over medium heat until softened. Season, to taste, with salt and black pepper. Divide between 4 serving plates or airtight containers for storage.

  3. Remove beef from slow cooker, shred into large pieces and place back into the slow cooker with remaining juices. Using a ladle, top cauliflower rice with beef and cooking juices. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

    Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
    Shave 10 minutes off the prep time by using Hy-Vee Short Cuts riced cauliflower—no washing the food processor, either. Look for riced cauliflower and riced broccoli in the produce department.
