Crock-pot Shredded Beef Tacos

It's that time of year when my my husband travels a lot.  It's super hard to get off work, get the kids and cook dinner to eat by 6:00.  Being this is the month to be thankful - I'm so thankful for my crock-pot!

I specifically looked for crockpot recipes this week due to hubby's travels and found 3 that I wanted to try out.  The first one was from Eat.Live.Run ( If you haven't checked out their website, you should.  They have a lot of really good recipes.  So this is what I do...I find a lot of different healthy recipes from all over. I make them and if they pass the test, I post them on my blog to share with others (always giving credit where credit is due).  I tweak some of the recipes a bit if I feel they need it.  Like this one, the recipe called for 1 tsp of salt.  It needed more, so I added another 1/2 tsp and they were perfect.  This one passed the test. This recipe has a tiny little kick to it, so my kids didn't really dig it, but me and hubby chowed! And - it was even better the day after!  I had these for lunch today and after sitting in the seasoning all yummy!

This one is Gluten Free and super easy to prep and make.  If you like crock-pot recipes, you should really try this one.  I ate tacos while my hubby made a burrito.  Super yummy recipe! and simple to put together! Hope you enjoy!


2 lb Flank Steak
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped

Spice Rub

2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper


Mix together all spices in a small bowl.  Rub the spices all over the flank steak front and back (be generous!)

Place the steak in the crockpot.  Cover the steak with the chopped onion and peppers.  Cook on low for 8 hours.  At the end of the 8 hours, your flank steak should easily tear apart with a fork.

Serve with your favorite toppings.  I chose cilantro, avocado, lettuce and line.  My husband added some cheese and sour cream.  You can make this into burritos, tacos or open faced tacos.  If you are Gluten Free, make sure you use corn tortillas!
