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!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients except steak, alcaparrado and cilantro in a 3½-qt or larger slow-cooker. Top with steak; turn steak over to coat with mixture.
  2. Cover and cook on low 8 to 10 hours or until steak is very tender. Transfer steak to a cutting board.
  3. 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.
