Crockpot Vaca Frita               Serves: 4  

Notes: Goes great with balck beans, white rice and maduros


1) Season the meat with salt and pepper and place in the crockpot.
2) Add dry white wine and bay leaves
3) Add beef broth and cook on high for 4-5 hours. Or low for 6-8 hours.

This next part only takes about 15 minutes:

4) Remove the cooked meat from crockpot. It should shred easily at this point.
5) Add the garlic to the cooling meat.
6) Squeeze the lime onto the meat.
7) In a large skillet, sauté the sliced onion, sliced bell pepper and parsley in the olive oil until the onion gets a little limp, but not completely transluscent. Add the meat, and the cumin, stir-frying until the meat is hot again and slightly crispy on the edges.
