Servings: 12
Prep Time: 15 mins
  • 2    tablespoons   canola oil
  • 1      flank steak (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 1      medium onion, chopped
  • 1      green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1      sweet red pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2    teaspoons   chili powder
  • 1/2   teaspoon   ground cumin
  • 1/2   teaspoon   salt
  • 1/2   teaspoon   pepper
  • 3      cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2   teaspoon   dried oregano
  • 1    14 1/2ounce can  fire-roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1/2   cup   reduced-sodium 99% fat-free beef broth
  • 1    7 1/2ounce package  soft corn tortillas
  •     Lettuce, diced red onion, shredded cheese (optional)
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat in pot of a pressure cooker (To buy a Fagor 6-quart pressure cooker, $125.95, visit or call 800-678-5752). Brown steak 5 to 6 minutes, turning once. Remove to a plate.
Reduce heat to medium and add remaining tablespoon oil to pot. Stir in onion, peppers, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in garlic and oregano; cook 2 minutes more.
Return steak to pot with any drippings, and top with tomatoes and beef broth. Lock lid in place. Over high heat, bring up to pressure, about 7 minutes. Lower heat to maintain pressure; cook 35 minutes.
Quick-release pressure by setting under cool running water. Open lid away from you, letting any excess steam escape.
Remove steak to a cutting board and cut across grain into 2-inch strips. Return sauce in cooker to medium heat and simmer, uncovered, 15 minutes. Meanwhile, shred meat with 2 forks and return to pot. Serve shredded beef and sauce on corn tortillas. Top with lettuce, diced red onion and cheese, if desired.
