Rita, this was fantastic! I had about 2 1/2 lbs. of flank steak but I still stuck with your amount of spices and stuff. I used crushed red pepper (a bit less than stated) and just 1 chipotle, to appease my family's sensitive stomachs. They all LOVED it and want me to make it again next Sunday :) So easy and so good! We had it on flour tortillas with sour cream, slices of avocado and grated white cheddar cheese. This is going into our favorites file! Thanks so much!
This was terrific. Very spicy, though, but we all loved it. I started it at noon time, so did it about 3 hours on high and another 1 or so on low. Shredded beautifully. Yum.
Fantastic!! I made exactly as described with only one small exception. I left the rubbed steak in the fridge overnight prior to putting in crockpot the following day. Served on rolls to sister-in-law's family who is excetionally picky, fully expecting (& hoping) to have lots of leftovers but they all loved it!!! No leftovers this time, and the standby hot dogs/hamburgers that we always have for them were not eaten. They did say it was quite spicy, next time I will probably not aded the red pepper for them. However we loved it. thanks for a great recipe!
