Cinco De Mayo and Mexican Beef

Mexican Beef in the Crock Pot

I have had this recipe for years and don’t recall who gave it to me. I am entering it into a cooking magazine contest that requires “spring crock pot recipes.” What is more springy than Cinco De Mayo?? Let me know what you think of it. Enjoy, and hand it down!

  • 1 boneless round steak or sirloin (about a pound or two)
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 T chili powder
  • 2 T mustard
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 16 0z can diced tomatoes and green chilies
  • 1 16 oz can black or red beans

Put the garlic, pepper, salt, chili powder, and mustard in a bowl and mix together. This will make a paste. Spread both sides of the meat with the paste. Place in crock pot and cover with onion, tomato, and beans. Low for 6 to 8 hours or until tender.

Serve alone or with sour cream, avocado, jalapenos, cheese….whatever you like. If eating grains, you can serve it on a bed of spanish rice.


About Comfort Cooking On Island Time

There are two things I can't resist; an old recipe handed down and passed around, and the beach. Growing up in the midwest I was introduced to true comfort food but always dreamed of a different landscape, and climate. Recently I acquired a 50 year old beach house. While stumbling after the great cooks of my past, I am focused on a future with cool waves and gently breezes......and watermelon rind pickles of course!
