About

Hands down this is my FAVORITE way to prepare flank steak!!! It has the same tender, fall-off-the-bone feeling of a short rib, without the fat and extra calories of a ​fattier piece of meat. Slow cooker recipes like this are almost TOO EASY folks! Seriously, throw everything together, cover, let some time pass by and then enjoy a lip-smacking dinner. It’s pretty much a no-brainer. Enjoy!


Serves 8

2 pounds flank steak

olive oil spray

2 medium Tomatoes, seeded and chopped

2 yellow onions, chopped

1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped

1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped

2 tablespoons Garlic, minced

2 tablespoons Dried Oregano

1 tablespoon ground cumin

2 teaspoons smoked paprika

1 teaspoon sea salt

½ teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes

lime (for garnish)


Directions
1

Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly coat with the olive oil spray. Add the flank steak and sear on both sides, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer the steak to a plate.

2

Deglaze the pan with the broth, scraping any drippings from the bottom. Set aside.

3

Combine the remaining ingredients together in the slow cooker. Add the steak and pan drippings. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours, until the steak is fall-apart tender.

4

Remove the meat and let it rest for 5 minutes. Shred with two forks then serve with the tender veggies and a squeeze of fresh lime. Enjoy!
