Slow-Cooker Shredded Steak


This comforting one-pot Slow-Cooker Shredded Steak is reminiscent of Cuban ropa vieja but without the hassle of searing it on the stove. An eight-hour braise in a slow cooker yields tender, juicy meat, soft enough to cut with the edge of a spoon. Flavored with garlic and cumin and cooked with tomatoes, bell peppers, and onions, this version adds a handful of pimiento-stuffed green olives and a drizzle of brine from the jar for a dish that will delight your taste buds. For best results, make this dish with thin cuts of beef like skirt steak or flank steak.  

The recipe is easy to make. Combine all the ingredients, except for the olives and brine, in your slow cooker, cover and cook on low heat setting for 8 hours. Once the steak is done cooking, coarsely shred the meat, then stir in the olives along with their brine. Serve over steamed white rice. Enjoy!
