Shredded Beef and Bean Slow-Cooker Tacos

Shredded Beef and Bean Slow-Cooker Tacos

Prep Time 5 minutes Cook Time 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low

Nothing is better than coming home after a long day to a fully cooked meal, and this dinner is not only satisfying but delicious! I make this recipe a lot for weekday meals and for when we have company over because it's so incredibly simple - it's always a crowd pleaser. Tender savory beef and black beans wrapped in a tortilla never disappoints!

What you'll need

  • 1 pound flank steak, fat trimmed
  • 1 1/4 cup beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed
  • optional add-ins: 1 cup diced tomatoes or 1 can green chilies
  • tortillas

How to make it

  1. Add beef broth, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and salt to a slow-cooker and stir to combine. 
  2. Place the flank steak in the slow-cooker and cover with the lid. Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours.
  3. After the steak has finished cooking and is falling apart, transfer it to a cutting board. With a fork shred the meat. Return it to the slow-cooker and add the beans. At this time you can add tomatoes or green chilies, if you desire,  to boost the flavors. Stir to combine and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until the beans are warmed through. Serve on tortillas.
