Are you making this? 
4 lbs chuck roast
2 cans spicy tomato sauce; (recommend El Pato brand)
1 cup white wine
3 tbls garlic; ( sounds like a lot but it's perfect) crushed
salt and pepper to taste
1 bunch cilantro leaves; (chopped)
1 bunch green onions; (chopped)

Original recipe makes 12



Pour the cup of wine in your slow cooker and add the roast. Season to taste with salt & pepper. Pour the tomato sauce over the roast, then the crushed garlic. Cook 9 to 10 hours on low. 30 minutes before you're ready to use the meat, shred it with 2 forks as best you can in the slow cooker with the juices. Stir in the cilantro and green onions. Cook for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, drain the meat in a colander. Put the meat in a pan and finish shredding it until it's where you like it.

The meat is now ready to use in any shredded beef recipe.

This is a good basic recipe that I use because my wife doesn't like things to spicy. Feel free to add chopped chipotles in adobo to the meat after it's drained for a little more punch [I posted this recipe.]
