  1. Select BROWN/SEAR, then press START/STOP. Pour 2 tablespoons of olive oil into the Crockpot® Express XL Pressure Multicooker. When hot, sear the beef steaks on both sides until nicely browned, then set aside.
  2. Combine the 3 tablespoons of olive oil, all the spices and onion in the Crockpot. Cook until the onion is brown and spices fragrant. Add the beef, water and salt then press START/STOP. Secure the lid ensuring the steam release valve is in the seal (closed) position.

  4. To make the salsa, combine all the salsa ingredients in a bowl and mix gently. To make the guacamole, combine all the guacamole ingredients in a bowl and mix gently.
  5. To serve, place all the beef, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, cheese and rice in individual bowls at the centre of the table so everyone can design their own burrito bowls.
