These Slow Cooker Carne Asada Steak Tacos are so full of flavor and so easy to make. I was appalled at how simple this recipe was to throw together, and serve for dinner.
My husband was also appalled by the flavor. A lot of slow cooker dishes taste similar, but this one was so simple and so delicious.
It came together in a matter of minutes and tasted absolutely amazing. If you have never tried making steak in your slow cooker, we highly recommend starting with this recipe, because you can’t go wrong.
It’s quick, simple, and delicious. Plus, all you have to do, is throw it in the slow cooker, and dinner is done. This recipe is for busy moms and dads, or a parent that just needs the night off from cooking.
could i make this recipe using a different meat?
For this recipe, I have only made it using beef steak. However, you could use any cut of steak, or switch it up and try a completely different meat.
We do recommend steak, because it creates such an amazing flavor combination with the peppers and other toppings, but chicken or pork would also be delicious.
Depending on the meat you choose, the cooking time may vary, but should all be in the range of 8 hours on low.
could i make this into a freezer meal, and freeze the aioli sauce?
I would recommend just dumping all the ingredients into a gallon-sized freezer bag (raw meat and all), then stick it in the freezer.
When you are ready to use it, remove the bag from the freezer and place in the fridge for 24 hours to allow it to thaw.
Then dump it all in the crock pot and cook as directed. As far as the aioli, I have not had much luck freezing mayo-based sauces – they tend to get clumpy and weird when you thaw them.
I think that you could make the aioli a week or two in advance and keep it in the fridge, but I wouldn’t feel good about much longer than that. It is best when made fresh.
