DIRECTIONS

  • Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Brown the flank steak on each side, about 4 minutes per side.
  • Transfer beef to a slow cooker.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the beef broth, tomato sauce, tomato paste, onion, bell pepper, garlic, cilantro, olive oil and vinegar.
  • Stir until well blended.
  • Pour over flank steak in slow cooker.
  • Cover, and cook on High for 4 hours, or on Low for up to 10 hours.
  • When ready to serve, shred meat and serve with tortillas or rice.
  • 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.
  • 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.
