This easy recipe has all the elements for a simple dinner the family will love. Slow cook the steak in advance, then when you’re ready to eat, fill the tortillas and let them at it!

Ingredients

Beef stock

1 cup(s), (250ml)

Orange(s)

1 large, squeezed to make ½ cup (125ml) juice

Chilli powder

1 tbs, Mexican

Lean beef blade steak

450 g, (buy 500g), fat trimmed

Corn tortilla

224 g, (8 x 28g)

Coleslaw, without dressing

200 g

Tomato(es)

2 medium, roma variety, deseeded, finely chopped

Red onion

½ medium, finely chopped

Fresh coriander

¼ cup(s), chopped

Lime(s)

1 medium, wedges, to serve

Instructions

  1. Combine stock, orange juice and chilli in a 5.5L (22-cup) slow cooker and season with salt. Add beef and turn to coat. Cover with lid. Cook on high for 4 hours (or low for 8 hours) or until steak is fork tender.
  2. Transfer steak to a cutting board, shred using two forks then return to cooker.
  3. Heat tortillas following packet instructions. Divide steak evenly among tortillas, then top with coleslaw, tomatoes, onion and coriander. Fold tortillas in half to enclose filling. Squeeze over fresh lime wedges to serve.

Notes

The slow-cooked steak is freezer friendly. Simply transfer steak mixture to a reusable container, cover and freeze for up to 2 months. Defrost in the fridge overnight and reheat in a saucepan over low heat on the stovetop until thoroughly heated.
