Carne Asada

This is definitely one of those "set it and forget it" recipes - don't you just love that about summer? You throw a few ingredients into the crock pot in the morning, go about your business throughout the day, and dinner's ready when you are! This is great to use in tacos, burritos, tostadas or served over rice. Please note that you couldn't feed an army with this recipe since it only uses a pound of beef strips, but it's a great meal for a family of 4!

Carne Asada

1 1/2 lb. of sirloin strips (I found lean beef cut into strips for stir fry)
½ c. Pinot Noir Wine
5 garlic cloves
2 jalapenos, seeded
1 small red onion cut into chunks
¼ c. cilantro leaves
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 ½ tsp. ground cumin
¼ tsp. ground cayenne
1 Tbsp. chipotle paste
2 Tbsp. lime juice
1 ½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper

Lay strips of beef in bottom of crock pot. Pour wine over the top.

Combine remaining ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse several times until mixture forms a paste.

Spoon mixture evenly over meat in crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours or until meat is fully cooked and tender.

Great to use in tacos, burritos, tostadas or spooned over rice.
