    1. 1
      Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

      Transfer beef to a slow cooker.
    4. 4
      In a large bowl, mix together the beef broth, tomato sauce, tomato paste, onion, bell pepper, garlic, cilantro, olive oil and vinegar.
    5. 5
      Stir until well blended.

      Cover, and cook on High for 4 hours, or on Low for up to 10 hours.
    8. 8
      When ready to serve, shred meat and serve with tortillas or rice.
    9. 9
      If freezing ahead: Don't brown the meat, just put ingredients in a ziploc bag and place in freezer, flattened. (I like to fit it into a bowl that will fit into the crockpot, but you don't have to.
    10. 10
      To cook from frozen: Thaw in refrigerator if desired (or put in frozen). Cook as directed above. If cooking from frozen add time for thawing.

      This turned out quite nice. I had just a little over 1 lb of meat - not sure exactly what kind of beef - but I used pretty much the full quantity of veggies, and omitted the tomato paste. I used a red pepper instead of green. I changed to procedure to deglaze the skillet with the broth (used chicken broth). I suspect that "someone" added some hot sauce, as mine was spicier than I thought it would be. It was very nice with a warm flour tortilla. I added the cilantro to the shredded meat. I got three servings with 1 lb of meat and the additional vegetables.
