IntroductionSo so easy, but it tastes so so good (and good for you!) So so easy, but it tastes so so good (and good for you!)
1 3/4 lb flank steak
7.5 oz tomato sauce (low sodium -- half of a 15 oz can)
1/2 c water
3 cloves garlic
1 onion, quartered and sliced thin
1 red pepper, quartered and sliced thin
1 green pepper, quartered and sliced thin
3 bay leaves
1 t ground cumin
1 can (15.5 oz) diced tomatoes, low sodium
1/2 t pepper
3 T red wine vinegar
Add tomato sauce, garlic, cumin, water, bay leaf, pepper, and vinegar to the bottom of a crock pot and stir.
Layer onions in bottom of crock pot.
Add beef atop onions, and be sure the liquid mixture is spooned atop the steak so it doesn't dry out (just a bit spooned, or press the steak down so it flows over).
Add the peppers atop the steak and the diced tomatoes evenly atop all that.
Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. Once cooked, remove the meat from the crock pot and use two forks to shred before returning to the pot.
Serve over rice or alone.
Number of Servings: 6
