:: Crockpot Concussion Beef

________________________________________

Crockpot Concussion Beef 
(to have in tortillas or tacos)
based on this recipe

500g of gravy beef
1 tin of tomatoes, juice and all
1 jar of nice quality salsa
1 cup of chicken stock
1 diced onion
3 cloves of garlic, crushed
a tablespoon of cumin
a teaspoon of paprika : smoked or not
a teaspoon of dried mixed herbs
1 teaspoon of brown sugar
a slosh of sherry vinegar or other nice vinegar
Lots of ground black pepper (or lovely white pepper!)
Some salt
Some olive oil

NB : I add chilli to my own, because my kids are not super spicy, but you can add chilli when you cook it if you like... and some beans would be nice too!

Mix all these things together, drizzle with some olive oil and put in a heavy based pan in a low oven for 4 hours.
Or in a slow cooker for 6 hours on high : if you use a slow cooker you will need to remove the meat and reduce the sauce down at the end.

Pull the beef apart with two forks and serve in tortillas with some of its sauce and lots of avocado, tomato, lettuce, jalapenos and extra salsa!  Cheese is nice for some people too, so add cheese if you like!
