Crock-Pot Carne Asada Lettuce Wraps


    Carne Asada

    • 2 lbs steak ( I used boneless sirloin, but you can use any cut you choose. Tougher cuts are completely fine, since the slow cooking will make them very tender.)
    • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
    • 2 tbs minced garlic (about 4 cloves, chopped)
    • 2-3 tomatoes, chopped
    • 1 4oz can of fire roasted diced green chiles (I got mine at Trader Joes)
    • 1/3 cup beef broth
    • Juice of 2 limes
    • 2 tbs chili powder
    • 1 tbs cumin
    • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
    • Salt, to taste
    • Pepper, to taste
    • Granulated garlic, to taste

    Suggested Toppings

    • Lettuce leaves (butter lettuce, romaine, iceberg)
    • Avocado, sliced
    • Salsa verde
    • Fire roasted salsa
    • Hot sauce
    • Lime wedges
    • Cilantro


    1. Rinse off your steak and pat it dry.
    2. Liberally cover it with salt, pepper and granulated garlic on either side. Set aside.
    3. Chop up your onions and tomatoes.
    4. In the bottom of your crock-pot, add your beef broth.
    5. Place your steak on top of the broth and cover your steak with the onion, tomatoes, garlic and green chilies.
    6. Add in your lime juice, pouring it evenly over the whole mixture.
    7. Add in your chili powder, cumin and cayenne evenly over the whole mixture.
    8. Set your crock-pot on a low setting and allow to cook for 6-8 hours.
    9. Once it is done, shred your beef by using two forks. It should shred very easily.
    10. Serve up on a lettuce cup with your favorite sauces and toppings!
    11. Enjoy!
