This recipe really couldn't be any easier. It's a great 'throw in and go' crockpot recipe. Come back a few hours later and you've got lunch/dinner ready to go. Simple ingredients, too!
Try this dish over some cauliflower rice and steamed green beans on the side for balance. Add some freshly sliced avocado on the side if you're looking for more fat. Enjoy!

3 tsp adobo seasoning
2 tsp black pepper
1 (16oz) can tomato sauce (make sure aren't any added sugars in the ingredients)

1/2 medium yellow onion, sliced into 1/4 inch thin strips
15 green olives plus 2 tablespoons of brine
1 bay leaf
Season beef with adobo and black pepper
In a crockpot layer half of the beef with peppers, onions, and olives and pour half of the tomato sauce, and then do the second layer with the remaining ingredients
