Slow Cooker Carne Asada Tacos

I have always been a fan of Carne Asada. I had my first taste of it at a friend’s graduation party and I have loved it ever since! And this recipe makes really good Carne Asada.

These are meant to be for tacos, so they aren’t sliced. I used two forks and shredded the meat and that worked really well!


CrockPot Carne Asada Tacos

  • 3 pound flank steak
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • Juice of one lime about 2 tablespoons
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  1. Add flank steak to bottom of slow cooker
  2. Whisk together remaining ingredients
  3. Pour over steak in slow cooker making sure all meat is covered with juice
  4. Cover and cook on low for 7-9 hours or until tender
  5. Remove from slow cooker and slice
  6. Serve immediately or return to slow cooker on keep warm and let soak in juices

Instant Pot Spaghetti

I have always been a fan of spaghetti. It’s a wonderful mix of flavors and you get to eat it with noodles!

My mom has been making this recipe for as long as I can remember, so it didn’t really have an official recipe.

Until now!

We made this a few days ago and actually measured the spices in, and it is the best I’ve ever had! I’ve literally been eating it for three days straight. (I’m actually eating right now while writing all of this)

Now, let’s not wait any longer. On to the recipe!

(This is done in an instant pot, but it can be done in a slow cooker as well.)

World’s Best Spaghetti Sauce


  • 2 pounds of ground turkey or beef
  • 29oz tomato sauce(I use Hunt’s)
  • 14.5oz diced tomatoes(again, Hunt’s)
  • Generous Tbsp garlic powder
  • Generous Tbsp onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp oregano
  • 1 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  1. Brown the meat on a stovetop or in your instant pot(If you are browning a higher fat meat, drain the meat before browning)
  2. Drain the diced tomatoes
  3. Add in all the other ingredients
  4. Set instant pot to high pressure for 30 minutes. (Or 4-6 hours in the crock pot)
  5. Prepare your favorite noodles and enjoy the heck out of your meal!


Baked Salmon

Yes, I know. Baked Salmon doesn’t really work as a dessert. However, Monday Munchies is going to be a bit of both from now on! I am going to earn a half credit for cooking and blogging this year, so food will be weekly, and treats will be whenever I remember to blog! 😉

This salmon is extremely good and extremely easy! I forgot to take a photo of it(because I was too busy eating it), so the one you see is from the original blog’s recipe.

Baked Salmon

Put your salmon on a foil lined baking sheet.                                                       Drizzle with olive oil salt and pepper.

Put the salmon in a cold oven turn onto 400 degrees and set the timer for 25 minutes.                                                                                                                                            After 25 minutes you will have perfect flaky delicious salmon.

A big thank you to the original recipe creator!
