Ingredients
Crock Pot Beef Carnitas Tacos
  • 2 lbs Flank Steak or Iron Steak
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped (optional)
Spice Rub for Beef Carnitas Tacos

Instructions
Crock Pot Beef Carnitas Tacos
  1. Mix together all spices in a small bowl. Rub the spices all over your flank steak—be generous and rub it into the meat. Then, place your steak at the bottom of your crock pot.

  2. Cover the steak with the chopped onions, bell peppers and jalapeno pepper. Turn heat on LOW and cook for 8 hours.

  3. After 8 hours, remove meat from crock pot and shred with a fork. It should be incredibly easy to shred. 

  4. To serve, heat your corn tortillas in a skillet on the stove. Spoon some carnitas on a tortilla then top with salsa, avocado, cilantro and a squeeze of lime.

Endive and Avocado Salad
  1. Whisk together the mustard, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper to make a vinaigrette. 

  2. Remove a half inch from the stem end of each endive, discard the core, and cut the rest across into 1-inch chunks. Cut the avocados into large dice or wedges. Toss the avocados and endive with the vinaigrette.

  3. Season to taste and serve at room temperature.
