When I saw the words “Crock Pot Steak Dinner!” on Pinterest last week, I was surprised and rather doubtful. While I’ve seen some amazing things done with a crock pot, an entire steak dinner…all in one crock pot?
I decided to try it. I mean, it couldn’t be that bad, right? I break out the crock pot every Sunday night and prep for Monday’s dinner. Around here, Mondays tend to be kind of rough, so it’s always nice to come home after a stressful day and walk in the house to the smell of a finished dinner!
Here’s the instructions:
- Line the bottom of the crock pot with foil
- Place a thick (at least 3/4-inch) steak in the bottom, and cover with at least 1/2 cup of steak sauce (my husband will only use A1 at our house!)
- Add another layer of foil
- Add in potatoes (foil wrapped) and FROZEN corn cobs (foil wrapped)
So basically, as you can see, at this point it looks like a crock pot full of foil!
- Cook on low for 6 hours
So I just popped the lid on, plugged her in, set it, and headed off to work. Doesn’t get any easier than that!
When I got home…
There you have it, folks! An entire steak dinner, right out of the crock pot!
Steak: it borders on medium-well, so if you want something more rare, just adjust your cook time
The pin also said you could try with thick pork chops or chicken, and use a BBQ sauce!
On that note, I’m not sure how to give credit where the pin is concerned. It’s a cell phone screen shot of a status from a place called Parga’s Junkyard, and it’s not linked to anything…so, I guess thanks to Parga’s Junkyard for this idea!
What do you think? What would you put in the crock pot along these lines to make an entire dinner?
