How to Make slow-cooker mexican beef tips


  1. Place beef tips in bottom of a 5-quart or larger
    slow cooker. Sprinkle spices over beef. Add both
    cans of tomatoes, with their juice, pouring them
    directly over the tips. Cover slow cooker. Cook
    on low for 8 to 10 hours.

    Stir well, and serve immediately, or store according
    to directions in the note below. Makes about 10 cups
    beef and liquid.

    Note: The beef will hold on low in the slow cooker
    for up to two hours before serving.
    Or prepare beef completely up to 48 hours ahead
    and refrigerate. Then re-warm on the stovetop over
    medium-low heat for 15 minutes or until heated
    through, or re-warm in the slow cooker on low for
    45 minutes to an hour or until heated through.
    You may cook the beef completely and freeze it
    (with cooking liquid) in an airtight container for
    two to three months. Thaw in the refrigerator
    overnight and reheat according to the directions

    This is perfect for dinner served over rice, but the
    quantity and adaptability makes it great for future
    lunches (or dinners) down the road. Here's a short
    list of the possibilities for the moist, flavorful beef
    for lunch at the office or dinner:

    *Over shredded lettuce for taco salad (with or
    without the shell and all the normal taco fixings.)
    *As a filling with Monterey Jack cheese for quesadillas.
    *As a topping for nachos or tostadas.
    *Filling for burritos or tacos (soft or crunchy).
    *As a filling for a Mexican version of a Philly cheese-
    steak sandwich paired with Monterey Jack cheese.
