Number of Servings: 8


    2 tsp chicken better than bouillon mixed with 1 1/2 cups water
    1/4 cups apple cider vinegar
    1 Tbsp ground cumin
    1 tsp paprika, mild-flavored, preferably smoked paprika
    1 tsp table salt
    1/2 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
    1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, or more to taste
    3 pounds raw lean sirloin, trimmed of any fat
    2 medium red onions, thinly sliced into rings
    2 large sweet red peppers, seeded, cored and chopped
    2 medium apples, peeled, cored and shredded through the holes of a box grater
    3 medium stalks celery, thinly sliced
    3 medium garlic cloves, minced
    1/2 cups cilantro, leaves, packed, chopped


* Whisk the broth, vinegar, cumin, paprika, salt, black pepper and cayenne in a 5- or 6-quart slow cooker. Submerge the meat, then add the onions, red peppers, apples, celery and garlic, making sure the vegetables are under, between, and over the steaks.

* Cover and cook on low until the meat is fork-tender, about 8 hours.

* Transfer the meat to a cutting board; set aside for 10 minutes. Shred the meat with two forks, pulling it into strands along the grain. Return to the slow cooker; stir in cilantro. Set the slow cooker on warm and serve within 4 hours. Yields about 1 1/4 cups per serving.
