WELCOME

Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

STEAK FAJITAS

1 (1 1/2 lb) beef flank steak
1 can (14.5-oz) diced tomatoes with garlic & onion
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded & chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 med onion, sliced
1 med green bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
1 med red bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
1 tbsp minced fresh cilantro
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tbsp water
12 (6-in) flour tortillas, warmed
3/4 cup sour cream
3/4 cup your favorite salsa

Slice the steak across the grain into thin strips and place in a 5-quart slow cooker. Add the tomatoes, with the liquid, jalapeno, garlic, coriander, cumin, chili powder, and salt. Stir to blend ingredients and then cover the cooker. Cook on low for 7 to 8 hours. Add the onion, red and green peppers, and the cilantro; cook another hour or until the meat is tender.

Combine the cornstarch with the water and stir until smooth. Gradually stir the mixture into the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 30 minutes or until slightly thickened. Using a slotted spoon, spoon about a half cup of the meat mixture down the center of each tortilla. Add a tablespoon of the sour cream and a tablespoon of salsa to each. Fold the bottom of the tortilla up over the filling and roll tortilla up.

Yield: 12 fajitas
