Flank steak that is rubbed in spices and slow cooks with peppers, jalapeño, and onions all day to tender and juicy perfection! This recipe is easy and will become a family favorite!
I made these carnitas when I first started my blog. They were an instant family favorite. But… my photography needed a makeover. Here is the picture before:
I remember trying to take this picture. I had only been blogging for three months! It was in the hallway on the stairs. I didn’t know how to use my camera or turn off the flash! So I covered the flash with my hand and took the picture! ? I think it is safe to say I have come a long way. And learned how to use my camera a little better!
Anyway. Now that you have had a good laugh and realize that anything is possible, let’s talk about these carnitas.
If I am going to make shredded beef it has to be perfect. I don’t want the beef to be dry or chewy. It has to be melt in your mouth tender and full of flavor. That is why I LOVE this recipe!
A flank steak slow cooking all day in a spice rub with a combination of peppers, jalapeño, and onions. The beef creates its on juices while it cooks and is so unbelievably tender. It doesn’t get much better than that!
This recipe is the perfect way to make beef carnitas for your family. You will not believe how amazing the flavor is and it is so tender. This is one of my husbands favorite recipes. In fact, he is devouring two as we speak.
The beef is so flavorful and juicy that it tastes great by itself. You can add minimal toppings to add some fresh flavors like avocado, diced tomatoes, or even some cilantro. These are AMAZING! I know that you are going to LOVE them just as much as our family does. 🙂
