Slow Cooker Recipe For Cuban Beef and Peppers

Sunday Slow Cooker: Cuban Beef and Peppers

After falling in love with a Cuban-inspired crockpot chicken, tonight I'm cooking along the same vein with a beef and pepper braise that conjures up images of dinner in Havana.

I'll serve the fork-tender flank steak and bell pepper medley over steamed white rice, avocado, and my favorite herb, cilantro. Ready to make your own one-pot Latin meal? Then keep reading.

Slow Cooker Recipe for Cuban Beef and Peppers 2010-03-12 13:18:02

Ingredients

  1. 1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes, drained
  2. 2 red bell peppers, sliced 1/2 inch thick
  3. 1 onion, cut into 8 wedges
  4. 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  5. 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  6. Kosher salt and black pepper
  7. 1 1/2 pounds flank steak, cut crosswise into thirds
  8. 1 cup long-grain white rice
  9. 1 avocado, sliced
  10. 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves

Directions

  1. In a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker, combine the tomatoes, bell peppers, onion, oregano, cumin, 1½ teaspoons salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Nestle the steak among the vegetables. Cook, covered, until the meat is tender and pulls apart easily, on high for 4 to 5 hours or on low for 7 to 8 hours.
  2. Twenty-five minutes before serving, cook the rice according to the package directions.
  3. Using two forks, shred the beef and mix it into the cooking liquid. Serve with the rice and top with the avocado and cilantro.

Serves 4.
