Description

Tasty little beef carnitas tacos made in the crockpot! For best results, enjoy with a margarita.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE BEEF:
  • 2 pounds Flank Steak
  • 1 whole Yellow Onion, Diced
  • 1 whole Green Bell Pepper, Stem And Seeds Removed Then Diced
  • 1 whole Red Bell Pepper, Stem And Seeds Removed, Then Diced
  • 1 whole Jalapeno Pepper, Seeded And Chopped
  • FOR THE SPICE RUB:
  • 2 teaspoons Chili Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • ¼ teaspoons Onion Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Black Pepper
  • FOR THE ASSEMBLY:
  • 1 package Corn Tortillas, 8-10 Count Package
  • Optional Garnishes: Diced Avocado, Chopped Cilantro, Salsa, Lime Wedges

Preparation

Mix together all of the spice rub ingredients in a small bowl.

Rub the spices all over your flank steak. Be generous here! Then, place your steak at the bottom of your crockpot.

Cover the steak with the chopped onions, bell peppers and jalapeno pepper. Turn heat on LOW and cook for 8 hours.

After 8 hours, remove meat from crockpot and shred it with a fork. It should be incredibly easy to shred. You can either stick the shredded meat back in the pot for another hour or serve as is.

To serve, heat your corn tortillas in a skillet over medium heat. Spoon some carnitas on a tortilla then top with salsa, avocado, cilantro and a squeeze of lime.

Enjoy with a margarita for best result.

Made these recently and they are good! I ended up with a top round cut instead of flank steak as it was a bit more economical, but I think I’ll go with the recommended cut next time. Mine shredded beautifully, but it wasn’t as tender as I’d hoped–though that might be to a longer cook time than intended. But the flavor was fantastic and it was so easy! Definitely a keeper. =)
