Slow Cooker Flank Steak Tacos

I have been making a lot of tacos lately because I can make the meat in advance, do some chopping and make a Mexican slaw during nap time, and dinner is easy breezy come 5:30. Yep, we are on the "let's eat before bedtime train" over here. This recipe using the slow cooker is so easy. No browning beforehand, no laundry list of steps, and not a huge amount of ingredients. This meat is delicious. So juicy and tender when it comes out and perfect after a long day. Just add a margarita and you are set. 

Slow Cooker Flank Steak Tacos
serves 4-6
From: Eat Live Run

2 lbs flank steak
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
for spice rub---
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
for serving---
corn tortillas
avocado slices
your favorite salsa

Mix together all spices in a small bowl. Rub the spices all over your flank steak---be generous here! Then, place your steak at the bottom of your crock pot.
Cover the steak with the chopped onions, bell peppers and jalapeno pepper. Turn heat on LOW and cook for 8 hours.
After 8 hours, remove meat from crock pot and shred with a fork. It should be incredibly easy to shred. You can either stick the shredded meat back in the pot for another hour or serve as is.

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.
