  4. Trans­fer the browned flank steak.
  5. Adding all the remain­ing ingre­di­ents.
  6. Mix well, com­bin­ing all the ingre­di­ents with the steak.
  7. Cov­er. Cook on Low for 6 hours.
  8. When done remove the flank steak and shred.
  9. Once shred­ded place back in the slow cook­er, and again com­bine all the ingre­di­ents with the steak before serv­ing.

SERVE with rice and beans, or in a tor­tilla.

Keep it a bit health­i­er by serv­ing over roast­ed bites of sweet pota­to .… YUM


I think the 2 T of salt should have been. 2 tsps. It was way too salty. Oth­er­wise, I think it would have been good.
