1 1/2 pound flank steak
12 ounces beer
3/4 cup orange juice
3/8 cup lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
8 flour tortillas
1/2 cup salsa
8 teaspoons low fat sour cream

Recipe Directions for Slow Cook Beef Carnitas

  1. Place the steak, beer, orange juice, fresh lemon juice, salt and fresh ground pepper in a 5- or 6-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook until the steak is fork-tender, 4-5 hours on high or 8-10 hours on low.
