Chipotle @ Home

The Spouse has been craving flank steak lately, so I decided to just crock one for fajitas. While the meat was crocking, I decided to just go all out. The result was Chipotle/Qdoba @ Home.... for not as much trouble as you'd think!

Seasoned Flank Steak
2 pkgs taco seasoning
beef broth
red wine
fresh cilantro, minced

Add about 1 cup of beef broth and 1/2 cup red wine to crockpot. Mix in the taco seasoning and cilantro. Place flank steak in. Add broth and red wine to cover. Cook on low for 5 hours. Remove flank steak and shred. Separate fat from seasoned broth. Replace flank steak and decanted broth in crockpot and keep warm.

Cilantro-Lime Rice
1 cup uncooked rice
2 1/4 cups water
1 tsp salt
juice of 1 lime (about 1 oz)
~2 tsp fresh cilantro, minced

Combine all ingredients in a 3 quart pan. Bring to a boil, stir once, reduce heat, cover and simmer 45 minutes or until rice is done.

I also served up black beans, sauteed onions and red and green peppers, cheese, more fresh cilantro and salsa verde. Yum!
