Slow-Cooked Steak Fajitas Recipe

Having grown up in the great state of Texas, I would suffer greatly if I were unable to eat a Mexican-style meal at least once a week. These steak fajitas go together in a snap and taste fantastic. My secret weapon is the crockpot!

Flank steak is a “pricier cut” of the cow, so the plus with this recipe is the fact that the added ingredients are usually inexpensive. That gives you a chance to serve a premium cut of meat even on a budget.

This steak fajitas recipe is also Gluten Free if you choose a gluten free salsa. Just check the labels.

My crockpot is a real secret weapon in the kitchen and it makes light work of meal prep. These steak fajitas come out very tender and are great in a variety of dishes.

Try them on tortillas, in taco shells, on a baked potato, or even on top of a fiesta style salad.

Ingredients:

  • 2 to 2 1/2 pounds flank steak
  • 1 medium onion
  • 14 oz jar of salsa
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 each – red and green bell pepper

Instructions:

  1. Cut flank steak into strips and place in crockpot.
  2. Cut onion into strips and put on top of the meat.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix salsa, cilantro, lime juice, garlic, and seasonings. Pour over meat & onions and stir to coat the meat.
