Raz’s Slow Cooker Fajitas

Fajita 03

For a lovely weeknight meal that will make the house smell lovely without making the kitchen look like a disaster, try our signature slow cooker fajitas. This one-pot meal (two if you’re counting the crock pot) will be gobbled up before you can say 1-2-3.

Serves: 8
Hands on time: 30 minutes
Total cook time: 6 hours

Ingredients:

2 pounds beef chuck, excess fat removed
10-12 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
2 large onions, chopped
2 large carrots, diced
¼ cup peanut oil
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sriracha
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1/3 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 cup filtered water

For shells:
8 mini tortillas
Cooking spray

For topping:
Perfect Guacamole
Salsa
Shredded lettuce
Grated 4 cheese mix
Light sour cream

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons peanut oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add 6 cloves of crushed garlic and 2 chopped onions. Cook for approximately 5 minutes or until aromatic and translucent.
  3. Add diced carrots to the mixture above. Season with salt and pepper and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Turn off heat and place mixture in slow cooker.
  4. Prepare the marinade. Add 4-6 remaining crushed garlic cloves, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, sriracha, white vinegar, and remaining 2 tablespoons oil of peanut oil.
  5. Score the beef chuck in a few areas to allow the marinade to soak in. Marinade for at least 5 minutes, and try to get as much of the marinade onto the meat as possible.
  6. Heat the same sauté pan from above over medium-high heat. Sear the meat for 3-4 minutes on each side, and then place in slow cooker along with onion, garlic, and carrot mixture.
  7. Put 1 cup of water into sauté pan and scrape all the remaining bits and pieces out, and then add to slow cooker.
  8. Cook on high for 5.5 hours. Remove meat from slow cooker once done and shred into pieces. The meat should shred easily.
  9. To prepare the tortillas, place in a muffin tin & spray with cooking spray. Twist tortilla to create shape as pictured above, if desired. Bake in preheated oven for 7 minutes or until brown.
  10. Top with guacamole, salsa, shredded lettuce, grated cheese, and light sour cream.
