- Remove and discard bay leaf. Tear steak in shreds using the two-forks method. Return shreds to cooker; stir in olives and chopped cilantro and serve.
This was delicious. Like Chef #798119, I used bell pepper instead of cubanelle. Served over yellow rice tossed with peas. Top with more capers if you are not a chopped green olive fan. Delicious!
Great crock pot recipe. Excellent flavor, easy. Made pretty much exactly as written (used standard red bell pepper instead of cubanelle and rice wine vinegar instead of cider vinegar). Will definitely make again.
