Steak Burritos Recipe

Steak Burritos Recipe

In Portland, Maine, Valerie Jones spices up flank steak with convenient taco seasoning packets. Slowly simmered all day, the beef is tender and a snap to shred. Just fill flour tortillas and add toppings for a tasty, time-easing meal.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 8 hours YIELD:10 servings


  • 2 beef flank steaks (about 1 pound each)
  • 2 envelopes reduced-sodium taco seasoning
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 10 flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped seeded plum tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream


  • 1. Cut steaks in half; rub with taco seasoning. Place in a 3-qt. slow cooker coated with cooking spray. Top with onion, chilies and vinegar. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours or until meat is tender.
  • 2. Remove steaks and cool slightly; shred meat with two forks. Return to slow cooker; heat through.
  • 3. Spoon about 1/2 cup meat mixture near the center of each tortilla. Top with cheese, tomato and sour cream. Fold bottom and sides of tortilla over filling and roll up. Yield: 10 servings.

"Decent, but not my favorite. Needs a little more flavor, somehow. A little tweaking and it could be really good. It was very tender."

"These were so easy and delicious! I used venison instead of flank steak. After it was done cooking in the crock I shredded it and added some taco flavored rice (I pre-cooked it by Lipton) then graded some pepper-jack cheese in them before rolling them up. My husband takes them to work and warms them up for lunch. Thanks for the great recipe!"

"To finish up the leftover meat, I like to spread refried beans on a tortilla, top with the meat mixture, a little mexicorn and some cheese. Then, top all of that with another tortilla and lightly brown in olive oil on both sides for quesadillas. It's another delicious way to enjoy these!"

"Next time try a chuck roast in your crock pot with a small can of enchilada sauce and s 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of cummin powder and 1-2 cloves of crushed garlic. When cooked, shred meat for tacos or burritos."
