Slow Cooker Carne Asada

  • Cooking Time:

  • Servings:



2 lbs. beef stew meat
1 c. lime juice
1 c. chopped, fresh cilantro (divid­ed)
2 T. white vine­gar
2 cloves gar­lic, minced
1 T. sug­ar or Ste­via
1 tsp. of chipo­tle gran­ules
2 T. liq­uid smoke (divid­ed)
1/4 c. olive oil
2 T. sea salt crys­tals
1 T. black pep­per

I start­ed crav­ing Carne Asa­da after a recent trip to LA.  Chef Aaron Sanchez is on bill­boards all over the city telling us all how well Carne Asa­da goes with that Bud Light we’re drink­ing. (or is it Bud Light pairs well with the Carne Asa­da we’re eat­ing?!) Either way, although Carne Asa­da is usu­al­ly grilled to per­fec­tion, I knew I could come up with a great recipe for the slow cook­er.  Hint: Don’t skip the liq­uid smoke, that’s what gives it the grilled fla­vor!

  1. Pre­pare the Mari­nade: Com­bine lime juice, vine­gar, olive oil, gar­lic, 1/2 cup of the cilantro, sug­ar, chipo­tle, 1 Table­spoon of the liq­uid smoke,sea salt, and black pep­per in a ziploc bag.
  2. Place meat inside the bag of mari­nade and seal.
  3. Refrig­er­ate the meat/marinade for 1 hour.
  4. Remove mar­i­nat­ed meat from bag; dis­card mari­nade.
  5. Sauté mar­i­nat­ed meat over med-high heat in a non­stick pan until all sides are browned.
  6. Place browned meat, jalapeño, pep­pers, onion, chilies and remain­ing liq­uid smoke in the slow cook­er.
  7. Cov­er and crock on low for 8 hours.

Serve on tor­tillas with pico de gal­lo, cilantro, lime, and if desired, a Bud Light!

Can you mar­i­nate the meat overnight or do it have to be an hour
