crock pot carne asada

More tacos! Always, I want more tacos. I could and definitely would eat tacos every night. Even Ed was happy about this because it's beef!
It's a pretty simple recipe too. The seasonings are cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper.
The real key to this recipe is to use a cook slice of beef. This is a flank steak with nice marble of fat but it's lean at the same time. The perfect steak for tacos.
Yep, that much seasoning. It wont be over powering, I promise.
Diced tomato, diced onion, diced garlic and diced jalapeno. Only one thing left before you leave it alone for a few hours...
One can of beef broth. Now, say goodbye for a little while.
4 hours on high or 8 hours on low, and here's what comes out. The smell is amazing.
Shred with two forks before plopping into a tortilla. Ed did this shredding! Nice boy.
Oh yes. All I need now is a little squeeze of lime and... maybe a few napkins.
