Southwest Steak & Beans (Crock Pot)

READY IN: 9hrs 30mins
Recipe by Sassy in da South

A yummy crockpot recipe that we serve over rice. As usual make sure you cut the flank steak against the grain for the best results.

What a wonderful recipe! Such an easy dish to pull together. The results are flavorful; the meat is tender; and the beans go great with rice (and the leftover pot likker). My family also enjoyed this spooned into taco shells and ladled the leftovers over Frito's Corn Chips. Thanks so much for sharing. I'll definitely make this again. Long live the Crock Pot!
