  • 2 Tbsp bacon fat or oil/butter of your choice
  • 3 lbs cubed beef (I used a rump roast, but use what you have!)
  • 1 large onion (diced)
  • 2 bell peppers (sliced)
  • 1 jalapeno pepper (diced)
  • 1 15 oz can Rotel or canned tomatoes
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp montreal steak seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp beef boullion
  • 6 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tsp epazote
  • 2 tsp Mexican oregano
  • 1.5 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • In a large pan over medium-high heat add bacon fat, onion, jalapeno, and bell peppers. Cook until onions are brown and bell peppers have softened.
  • When vegetables are ready remove them from the pan and add to the bottom of the Crock-Pot.
  • Using the same pan return to medium-high heat add remaining bacon fat, cubed beef, and 1 tsp salt.
  • Stir and brown on all sides. When your beef has browned add the minced garlic to the beef and continue to cook until garlic is fragrant. (1-2 minutes).
  • When garlic is ready turn your pan to high heat and add 1 cup chicken broth to the pan making sure to scrape the bottom to pull up all of those delicious browned bits stuck to the bottom.
  • Add your seasoned browned beef mixture to your Crock-Pot.
  • In a small bowl combine cornstarch and water, mix until smooth. Set aside.
  • Add remaining ingredients; including cornstarch mixture to your crock-pot and stir well.
  • Cook on low for 8-10 hours covered or until beef is tender and a gravy has formed.
  • Taste for flavor, and adjust as needed to your preference.
  • Enjoy in tacos with lettuce and tomato, with rice and beans, or side dish of your choice!
