Prepare the tomato paste by mixing well with a small amount of water to tomato sauce consistency.
In a large skillet, heat the oil or lard, brown the meat. Place the meat, onion, bell pepper, tomato paste and seasonings in the crockpot. Cook until the meat is fork tender (usually about 4-5 hours).
Remove from sauce w/a slotted spoon, making sure to let as much of the sauce as possible drain. Place in a bowl or on a plate and pull to shreds with the back of a fork.
Serve on a locarb tortilla or on a bed of lettuce. Side with pico di gallo, sour cream, if you wish.
