Crock Pot Carne Asada

Crock Pot Carne Asada
I often make Carne Asada for my meat loving family. This usually entails Searing meat, then putting it in the oven for hours. With the weather being so great, I really did not feel like having the hot oven on for hours. So I decided to give the old slow cooker a go. This worked out perfectly. If you can chop a few vegetables and measure a few spices. You will find this recipe to work great for perfect Carne Asada every time. The best part is, it works with any steak cut of beef. It actually works great with chicken as well. Throw it all in the pot and it is ready by dinner. It makes the perfect filling for Burrito's, Taco's, Tostada's, Nacho's, Chimichanga's etc..

1 (10.5 ounce) can beef broth
3 diced tomatoes 
2 jalapeno peppers chopped
1 sweet onion, chopped 
4 cloves garlic, minced 
2 pounds Steak 
2 tablespoons ground cumin 
2 tablespoons chili powder 
2 teaspoons salt 
2 teaspoons freshly cracked black pepper 
In small bowl, combine the cumin, chili powder, salt and black pepper.

Sprinkle the spice mixture over the beef so that it is evenly coated and place in the crock pot Prepare all veggies by cleaning and chopping them. Place them in the crock pot.
Add Beef Broth and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
Shred the meat with 2 forks and drizzle with some of the braising liquid to keep the meat moist. Cover until ready to serve.
