No joke, this crock pot meal will change your life. Not only is it so easy to make but the beef comes out so tender unlike when you order beef fajitas at a Mexican restaurant and sometimes the beef comes out chewy and tough. It is THAT good! My kids beg for this meal!
  • 2lbs of flank steak OR beef sirloin tip (any lean beef cut will do)
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 large poblano pepper or 2 jalapeños (if you can take the heat), seeded and diced
  • 2 color bell peppers, seeded and chopped
  • Homemade Spiced Rub:
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • ½ teaspoon of black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons of chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon of onion powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon of cayenne pepper (add ¼ if you like the extra kick)
  • For Serving:
  • fresh avocados or homemade guacamole, lime slices, fresh cilantro, non-grain tortillas, romaine, chopped cherry tomatoes, etc.
  1. Prepare ingredients from salt to cayenne pepper in a small bowl and then rub your aromatic spiced rub on all sides of your beef.
  2. Place your spiced rub beef at the bottom of the crock pot.
  3. Chop all your onions and peppers and place over the beef in the crock pot.
  4. Cook on low for 9 hours and enjoy. I know people get uneasy about leaving a protein in the crock pot all day that does not have a lot of liquid because they think it will burn, but I can assure you it will NOT burn. The vegetables and beef will emit a lot of juices in the cooking process which will give it enough to keep it moist. The last thing you can say about this meat is that it is dry; scouts honor!
  5. When you get home or at the end of the cooking time, shred the beef and mix your veggies and enjoy. I serve mine with big romaine lettuce wraps to substitute for a tortilla. I have also served it over my Cilantro lime cauliflower rice and eaten as is. Don’t forget to top it with fresh avocado. I usually make homemade guacamole with just avocado, cilantro, fresh squeezed lime juice and a little salt)
  6. Eat up and enjoy!
