1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin

¼ teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons soy sauce, preferably the low-sodium variety

1 large onion, cut into slices

 

 

Crockpot Fajitas Steps

Directions

1. Start by placing  1/2 of your onion slices on the bottom of the crockpot. Place flank steak on top of onions. (the onion ‘base” will keep the meat from drying out)

 

2. Next, mix together the chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper. Sprinkle on top of the flank steak. 

 

3. Pour soy sauce over the top of the steak and season and spread minced garlic  evenly over top of meat.

 

4. Top  with the rest of your sliced onions, green chilies and bell peppers. Cover and cook on HIGH for 5-6 hours until meat can easily be shredded with 2 forks. 

 

Have fun topping the  fajitas with your favorite fixings! We love guacamole, salsa, cheese and Greek yogurt!

Here is what I used to make this YUMMY dip!  

 

Comments

  1. This looks so yummy. I shared it on stumbleupon.

  2. These look great, can’t way to try!

  3. Desiree says:

    Does this recipe need any liquid? Other than the little soy sauce?

  4. Jannelle says:

    I’m making these tonight! My family loves recipes from you Corey! Thanks for sharing them!

  5. I just had these tonight. I used round steak instead of flank because that is all we had. They were super yummy!

  6. I just made these and they were AMAZING! thank you so much. The whole family loved them. My sister is a very picky eater and she even got seconds! :)

  7. I am going to try this with chicken rather then steak. Do they stay juicy with only the soy sauce as liquid? If i’m doing chicken, should I add in a little water? Thanks!!

    • There will be less fat for sure to keep things moist. The onions and peppers will release some liquid, but you might want to add some water or broth to be on the safe side. Let me know how it turns out ;)

    OK so my 2 year old’s Dora fiesta party is this weekend and I want to double this recipe. Will you advise as to how much longer I should plan to cook this. I don’t want to mess up the fiesta food!!!! I’m looking at your cool ranch crockpot chicken also and wondering about the time if I double that one. Thank you so much!!

    • I personally have never made a double batch of these, but if I were going to, I would up the cooking time by 1-2 more hours. (depending on if you are going to cook on HIGH or LOW) IS there anyway you could barrow a second crockpot and just have 2 going at once?

  9. Could you do this with chicken?

  10. Once the time is up…do you shred right in the crockpot with the veggies still in there or do you take veggies out then shred? My husband is going to love these.. In the crockpot right now!

  11. Hi! I want to try these for a dinner party but I leave the house too early to get back to turn the crock pot off after 5/6 hours. How long would you recommend if I cook on Low?

  12. I’m not sure how to rate this recipe just yet. My first attempt was a disaster. Followed the recipe. Was a little skeptical about the 5 to 6 hours on high but that’s what was called for. The first couple hours it smelled great. At hour 5 it wasn’t smelling as good. Checked it and turned it off. Yes the meat was easily separated with a fork but it crumbled rather than shredded. Dry cardboard like texture. The vegetables had totally disintegrated into an unrecognizable glop. The whole pot looked more like a Sloppy Joe recipe than Fajitas. Maybe “high” on my crockpot is higher than most. In any case I think I’ll try it again on “Low”.

  13. Michele B says:

    I would love to try this, however, flank steak has gotten so expensive since fajita’s became so popular. 1-1/2 lbs of flank steak is close to $20 and when it only feeds 4-6 people, that is just way too expensive. They look and sound delicious though! I wonder if any other cheaper cuts of meat would work?

  14. I used 1.25 pounds of pre-cut “meat for stir fry” labeled @ the grocery store and meat ran me about $8 vs the $17 1.25pnd flank steaks. Seeing as these cuts are naturally not as tender or flavorful, I added 1/4 c of low sodium beef broth, cooked on low for 8 hours & the meat was very tender & soaked up the flavors well. Delicious! Thanks for the recipe :)

  15. Made this tonight & it was delicious! I didn’t have a can of green chilies on hand, so I substituted a couple spoonfuls of diced jalapenos, and I added 1/4 cup of tequila. My husband raved about how good dinner was! Thank you for the recipe!

  16. Marianne says:

    Hi, do we add water to this at all? Wouldn’t the meat dry out without any water?
