Steak Carnita Meat in the Crockpot

Serves 6-8

For the spice rub:
1 T. chili powder
1 1/2 tsp cumin or smoked cumin
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, or more to taste
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 lbs flank steak
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped

Serving Options:
Corn tortillas
Shredded lettuce
Grated cheese
Sour cream

Mix all of the spice together in a small bowl for the spice rub. Rub the spices into each side of the steak, using all of the mixture. Place the spice rubbed-steak in the bottom of the crock pot. Place the chopped onion, bell pepper, and jalapeno on top of the steak. Cook for on low for 7 to 8 hours. After the cooking time has lapsed, remove the steak from the crock pot and shred with two forks. Serve immediately or return to the crock pot for a few hours until you are ready to eat. Serve on corn tortillas with your favorite topping.

Flank steak is generally tougher, and therefore cheaper piece of meat. It’s a great candidate for the crock pot. Use what you have on hand or what’s on sale… if it’s a leaner cut of meat you may need to add a bit of beef stock at the end to make sure it doesn’t dry out before cooking.
