CROCK POT STEAK FAJITAS

This here Crock Pot Steak Fajitas is what we ate for 2 days last week. 

If you are as busy as a bee, and if you don’t mind juicy and tender meat that literally shreds itself, this is your kind of recipe. Unless you’re a vegetarian, then, I guess this is not your kind of recipe. 😀 

But, if you love your meat, and your peppers, and your onions, AND fajitas!? Turn on the crockpot and git ‘er done!

Also? Make sure you use your favorite Salsa because, essentially, we’re cooking and marinating the entire meat in said salsa. It better be good, you know?

These slow cooked Beef Fajitas are great for those Saturday afternoon get togethers when you don’t have any idea when anyone is arriving but you don’t want to be cooking when they get home. 

The Crock Pot was one of the first major kitchen appliances that I bought and I am in love with it. It solves all problems. I throw all the ingredients in the pot, turn it on, and 6 hours later we got dinner!  Like this awesome recipe for Spinach and Feta Crock Pot Lasagna 😋

HOW TO MAKE STEAK FAJITAS IN THE SLOW COOKER

  1. You’ll want to get started by cutting the  flank steak into 6 equal portions and place in your slow cooker. 

  2. Next, add the onions and peppers to a 6.5-quart (or larger) slow cooker. Then, pour in the tomato salsa and add beef broth.

  3. Add fajita seasoning and mix everything together.

  4. Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours or on LOW for 6 to 8 hours.

  5. Shred the cooked beef, then, stir it back into the slow cooker. Serve.

Fajita Toppings Ideas:

  • Salsa
  • Sour Cream
  • Salad Leaves
  • Grated/shredded cheese
  • Sliced Jalapenos
  • Cilantro
  • Sliced Avocado

How Long Can I Leave Food In the Crock Pot?

  • As with food cooked any other way, cooked crock pot foods should not be left at room temperature any more than an absolute maximum of 2 hours. 

How Do You Store Leftovers In A Crock Pot? 

  • I like to store my leftovers in shallow containers and refrigerate them within two hours.
  • One of the best parts of your crock pot meal is the leftovers, but make sure you are storing them safely and eating them in a timely manner to reduce your risk of food poisoning. No one wants that. 😐 

How Do I Freeze These Crock Pot Fajitas? 

  • Store all leftovers in a freezer-safe glass container or large Ziploc freezer bags.
  • Label it and keep in the freezer for 2 months.
  • To defrost, completely thaw in the refrigerator before reheating. 

How To Reheat Food in The Crock Pot

  • We love this Crock Pot Beef Fajitas recipe and we always end up having it 2 days in a row. Do not reheat food in the slow cooker because it takes too long to reach a safe temperature. Use the stovetop or microwave for reheating.
  • However, you can use a slow cooker to keep food hot up to 2 hours before serving.

  1. Great. I used London broil because that’s what I had. Ended up with shredded beef which suited me and my husband just fine!

  2. Hard pass!!! Very disappointed. Maybe with a skirt steak or a sirloin but Flank Steak doesn’t belong in fajitas. Wrong texture and wrong flavor for fajitas. Thank you for the try but being from Texas I would say this is far from being fajitas. My apologies for being brutally honest but I just felt like this idea would have been better with beans and ground beef and maybe some chorizo and made kind of a stew out of it.
