Ropa Vieja (Fajita-like Beef) **Untested**

If you've never had flank steak, this sounds like a great recipe to try it with. I'm sure I'll try it sometime soon... Flank steak is cheap, and the crockpot is easy... sounds like a winner...

Ropa Vieja

1 large onion, sliced into thin rings
1 large green bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
2 celery stalks, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 c red wine vinegar
2 TBS Worcestershire sauce
1.5 TBS ground cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
9 dashes hot pepper sauce
1 (2 lb) flank steak
1 c vegetable broth
3 bay leaves
1/2 c chopped fresh cilantro

Combine onion and pepper sauce in a large bowl. Transfer half of the mixture into 5 or 6 qt crockpot. Place steak on top of mixture. Spoon remaining mixture over steak. Pour broth around steak and then tuck in bay leaves. Cover and cook until steak is tender. 5-6 hours on high or 8-10 hours on low.**
