Ingredients
Slow Cooker Caribbean Beef
  • 0.5 kg of Beef: Can use a variety of cuts; cheap steaks; boneless roasts
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 jalapeƱos, deseeded and chopped {*this is to my personal taste}
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp packed brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp thyme leaves
  • 2 tsp ground allspice
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • ¾ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
Mango Salsa
  • 2 mangos, cut into ½ cm cubes
  • 2 shallots, diced into small pieces
  • ½ cup loosely packed chopped cilantro
  • ¼ cup lime juice
Assembly
  • 6 inch flour tortillas (1 package of 10)
  • Greek yogurt
Instructions
Slow Cooker Caribbean Beef:
  1. Place all ingredients except beef into a food processor, puree until smooth. Scrape into slow cooker; place beef on top and smear with the sauce.
  2. Cook on low for 5-6 hours, until beef is cooked through and tender. Remove from sauce, shred with two forks. Stir sauce in with shredded beef to taste. We used ½ a cup of sauce for a 0.5kg roast.
Mango Salsa
  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Cover until ready to serve.
Assembly
  1. Spread tortilla with beef. Top with Mango. Add a dollop of Greek yogurt, if desired {not photographed}
Notes
I added 1 jalapeƱo at a time to the food processor to get the perfect amount of spice.
