Crock Pot Salsa Steaks

READY IN: 4hrs 10mins
Recipe by Actressdancer

This was a throw-together dish that resulted from defrosted meat, no fresh veggies, and a deep desire to break out my crock pot. The meat was falling apart tender (enough so that my 14 month old could eat it with no problems) and the juice was perfect over mashed potatoes. I'm sure you could use more steaks that what I did for the amount of juice, but this is typed out just as I made it.

This was delicious! The meat was so tender and flavorful. I did make a few adjustments; I added 2 tbsp. beef bouillon and reduced the vinegar to one tbsp of red wine vinegar My DH had his in a tortilla, I had mine over brown rice. The juice was great on the rice! Thanks for posting, made for Spring PAC 2013
