Method

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Sprinkle beef with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper; cook until browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Transfer beef to a slow cooker.

Add onions to the skillet and cook, stirring until browned, about 6 minutes. Stir in garlic and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

Transfer onion mixture to the slow cooker. Add tomatoes with their juices and nestle in cinnamon sticks.

Cover and cook until meat is fork-tender, 8 to 10 hours on low or 4 to 5 hours on high.

Remove meat from the pot and slice it thinly against the grain.

To serve, spoon sauce over meat and sprinkle with mint.
