Crock Pot Steak Fajitas

March 20, 2012

In our quest to add diversity to our dinner repertoire, I have turned to Pinterest.  (You can check out my Food page here).  If you haven’t checked out Pinterest yet, I would highly recommend it.  Just don’t start if you have somewhere to be.  Tonight’s dinner was found while goofing off planning this week’s dinners.

Here is the recipe

Ingredients

1 pound thin steak, cut into strips

This isn't my picture, I forgot to take one.

1 green pepper, cut into strips

1 medium onion, cut into strips

1/2 cup beer (or water)

1 tsp. chili powder

salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Place all ingredients into crock pot, cook on high for 4-6 hours.  Serve in corn or flour tortillas with cheese, salsa and sour cream (or whatever you like with your fajitas).

I also heated up some refried beans as a side dish.

These were incredibly tasty, the only complaint we had was that they were too watery.  Next time I will take the steak, green peppers and onions out of the crock pot and drain them before serving.  Other than that, they were excellent.

This is also one of those crock pot meals that can be made ahead of time and put in the freezer.  Just put all the ingredients (except the beer) into a Seal-A-Meal bag or freezer bag and place in the freezer.  Then, when you need a quick easy meal, it can go straight from freezer to crock pot along with the beer and a few hours later, dinner is served!  It couldn’t be any easier.
