Cuban Braised Beef- 21 Day Fix Approved

Cuban Braised Beef- 21 Day Fix Approved!

21 Day Fix Approved Cuban Braised Beef

Flank steak is one of my favorite lean meat choices for my red container on the 21 Day Fix.  Beef contains more iron in it that chicken and sometimes I just need it!  This is a great 21 Day Fix approved recipe that has tons of flavor and can be made ahead of time! I changed it up and used the 21 Day Fix Smokey Southwestern Seasoning mix.  Can you say YUM!

Serves 4

1 1/2 pounds flank steak, cut in half crosswise
1  28-ounce can diced tomatoes
1 large onion, cut into wedges
2 red bell pepper, sliced
1 1/2 teaspoons Smokey Southwestern Seasoning powder
kosher salt and black pepper
1/2 avocado sliced or diced

Option to serve over brown rice or quinoa


  1. Place the steak in a large saucepan. Add the tomatoes, onion, chili powder, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Simmer, covered, until fork-tender, about 2 hours OR put everything in your crock pot on low for 3-5 hours. 
  2. Using two forks, shred the beef and mix it into the cooking liquid. Serve over rice or quinoa and top with the mango, avocado and cilantro. 

If you are following the 21 Day Fix, use your red container to portion out a heaping serving the beef and your yellow to portion out your rice.  Top with 1 blue of avocado.  This counts as 1/4 of a green with the veggies per serving as well.
