Method

Step 1

Season beef steak with salt and black pepper on all sides.

Step 2

In a large nonstick skillet, heat canola oil over medium-high heat. Add seasoned meat and brown on both sides, for 3 minutes per side. Place browned beef in a slow cooker. Stir in sliced carrots.

Step 3

Add 1 tablespoon of canola oil to the skillet along with garlic, onions and green bell peppers. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring, until vegetables are softened and start to caramelize. Pour in dry white wine and cook, stirring and scraping any browned bits from the bottom, for a further 1 minute. Turn off heat and transfer mixture to slow cooker.

Step 4

In a medium mixing bowl, combine tomato puree, tomato paste, dried ingredients, and 2 teaspoons kosher salt. Mix well. Pour tomato mixture over beef in the slow cooker.

Step 5

Cover slow cooker and cook on high-heat setting for 6 hours or until beef is tender. Just 30 minutes before, stir in green olives and vinegar.

Step 6

Turn off slow cooker. Using tongs, transfer meat to cutting board. Shred beef with two forks. Pour sauce over shredded flank steak. Serve over cooked rice with black beans and lime wedges.
