New Recipe Night - Crock Pot Carne Asada

Crock Pot Carne Asada
 3 lbs beef stew meat
2 cans diced tomatoes with green chilies
salt and pepper to taste
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup chopped onion
1 diced bell pepper
3 Tbsp flour
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 cup water

Place stew meat, 1/4 cup water, salt and pepper in crock pot.  Cook on high an let simmer for 1 1/2 hours.  Drain juice from tomatoes into measuring cup.  Add tomatoes, garlic, green pepper and onions to crock pot; stir and let simmer on high for 30 minutes.  Add cumin, oregano and chili powder to crock pot and stir.  Blend juice an enough water to equal 1 1/2 cups liquid and flour.  Stir into meat/veggie mixture.  Let cook on low for 3-4 hours until sauce is nice and thick.  (If you like runnier gravy, 3 hours is good)  Serve with rice and warm tortillas.

It was pretty good, I don't think I let it cook long enough.  It will probably be great tomorrow after the flavors meld a little more.  I also think I need to let it cook a little longer, because the meat was a little tough.  Lots of potential just a little tweaking needed.
