  • 1 carrot, peeled and sliced lengthwise
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 whole head of garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) dry white wine
  • 2 cups (500 ml) tomato puree

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 cup green olives, pitted and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar

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 purée, tomato paste, dried ingredients, and 2 teaspoons of 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 the slow cooker. Using tongs, transfer meat to a cutting board. Shred beef with two forks. Pour sauce over shredded flank steak. Serve over the cooked rice with black beans and lime wedges.
