Slow Cooking Thursday - Fajita Stew

It's Slow Cooker Thursday again! Please stop by Sandra's blog Diary of a Stay at Home Mom to check out all the other participants recipes!

I love cooking in my slow cooker. I like no brainer throw it all in the pot recipes! I like coming home from work at 6 or 6:30 and smelling the food already done. All I have to do then is set the table... Simple, Easy! Luv it! Today's recipe comes from my love of Mexican food. I am always up for spicy food.

2 1/2 lbs boneless beef top round steak
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
14 oz can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 oz envelope of fajita seasoning mix
1 red bell pepper, cut into 1" pieces
1 green bell pepper, cut into 1" pieces
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup water

Trim excess fat from beef and cut into 2" pieces. Combine with onion in a 3-4 quart slow cooker. Mix together fajita seasoning mix and undrained tomatoes and pour over beef. Place peppers on top. Cover crockpot and cook on low for 7-9 hours until beef is tender. Combine flour with water in a small bowl and stir well to mix. Add gradually to crockpot and stir well. Cover slow cooker and cook on high for 15-20 minutes until thickened, stirring occasionally. Serve stew with hot cooked rice or hot couscous. 8 servings
