This tasted and smelled terrific! I did put 1/4 cup of DH Mexican beer in and used lime juice instead of lemon. I never thought to make fajita meat in the crockpot, but certainly will do it again!
Very good, and easy. Only cooked for a total of 2.5 hours on high and the steak was perfect. Also, this freezes great!
I prepared this dish in my Nesco roaster which has a "slow cook" setting and the meat cooked faster than the directions indicate. I used red vs. green bell peppers as I like the taste better. Next time, I will add a little more fajita seasoning; however, the dish was great!
