I think everyone knows how much I enjoy crockpot recipes! I love when I can find good crockpot recipes, I should say! I made this as part of a Mexican themed birthday celebration for a friend.
I thought this was really good, although I would up the seasonings next time I make it. I thought it could use a tad more salt, and my husband thought it needed a little more taco seasoning. I would definitely make it again though! I served this with diced avocados, fresh homemade salsa, sour cream, and shredded cheddar cheese on warm flour tortillas.

Source: adapted from Can You Stay For Dinner?
1 lb. beef flank steak, thinly sliced
1/2 medium onion, sliced thinly into strips
1/2 cup medium salsa
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 green peppers, sliced into thin strips
flour tortillas, salsa, avocados, sour cream, cheese
- Thinly slice the flank steak and place it along with the sliced onion in the base of a slow cooker.
- Mix the salsa, cilantro, lemon juice, garlic, chili powder, cumin, and salt in a small bowl and pour over to evenly cover. Cook on the lowest setting for 10 hours.
- One hour before the beef is done cooking, add the sliced bell peppers to the slow cooker so that they may soften slightly.
- Serve the beef, onion, and peppers in warmed flour tortillas with any toppings you like.
