Carne asade has never been easier! This slow cooker carne asada is easy to throw together, and it’s perfect for making carne asada tacos. The meat falls apart is and is full of incredible flavor!
I always like to try and make birthdays special.
It doesn’t mean we do anything super exciting, but I like to make the person feel like they are so important and loved.
Why wouldn’t you want to on the day a loved one was born?!
So, I always let the person whose birthday it is choose what kind of cake they want and what they want for dinner.
For Forrest’s birthday in May, he chose a S’mores Cake (SO good) and carne asada tacos. I was a teensy bit stressed about that because I’d never made it before. I thought I’d have to do it on the grill, and I don’t really work well with grills.
However, in the end, I decided to make it in our slow cooker. It turned out great!
I looked at several different recipes and combined elements from each. We ended up serving them on corn tortillas with an avocado and Greek Yogurt sauce, cheese, salsa, tomatoes, and lettuce.
My family came over for dinner, and everyone really enjoyed it. I was happy that it turned out well in the slow cooker, and I really can’t wait to make it again!
