Step 1 In a medium bowl, whisk together the lime juice, beef broth, and Maggi. Season the beef with salt and pepper and place into the slow cooker. Pour the lime and maggi mixture over the beef.

Step 2 Add the tomatoes, bell peppers, onion, garlic, oregano, and diced tomatoes to the slow cooker. Stir together.

Step 3 Cook on low in the slow cooker for 8 hours. Then shred the beef using two forks and serve. I usually like to let the shredded beef hang out in all the cooking liquid/sauce for about 30 minutes before serving. Just keep the slow cooker on low.
