A Winner…and a Crock Pot Steak Dinner!

First of all, the winner of the $30 Amazon gift card to celebrate the third birthday of The Road to Domestication…Zoe Monteleone! Zoe, send me an email to Kristen@theroadtodomestication and I will hook you up!

And now…

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…

Entire Steak Dinner...in the Crock Pot!

 

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
Corn: perfect!
Potatoes: perfect!

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?

  1. That sounds so yummy! I love making things in my crock pot – especially on school nights when the kids have activities after they get home and I don’t have much time to cook!

  2. Now I’ve seen it all! :) Steak in the crock pot? Never would have thought about it. But it’s really neat that you have the entire dinner ready when you get home! Pinning!

  3. Wow what an awesome idea! Although I’m a vegetarian and cannot partake of the meat – I’ve got a new way to prep veges (gotta keep the little munchkins interested). Great post!

    • I know, I don’t love steak, but my husband does, so there you go LOL And my Crock Pot is a 7-quart one.

  4. I’m with your husband. A1 is the way to go!

    I have never seen a crock pot meal quite like this with everything wrapped in foil! I am pinning this and trying this ASAP! This is so cool! And it looks good too!

    • First of all, Amanda, welcome back to the blogging world! I hope this comment means you’re feeling great!!! And I know, this was a new one for me…I’m glad it all worked out well!

  5. I have never thought to make steaks in the crock pot before, for some reasons steak and grill area a combination of words for me. Being that we do not have a grill yet, I might have to give this a try as I miss steak.

    • I know, I was worried the first couple of times LOL So I leave it in the Crock Pot on the stove. It tricks my mind into thinking that if it gets too hot, it’s a stove, so it should be able to take it LOL

    • I don’t buy them often because my hubby gets them almost every time we go out LOL But he liked this one!

    • I know it! I always find these great crock pot things on Pinterest, and then you have to make 15 more things to go with what’s in the crock pot, no thank you!

  6. I have never tried steak in the crock pot, but I love the idea! I am going to do this on a busy weeknight when I want a yummy steak dinner, but know I won’t have time to cook one. Pinning!

  7. This looks awesome! I will be trying this soon, although I think I’ll substitute something else fro the corn… I wonder if broccoli and cauliflower would work??

    • Oh dear…yes, you’re right, this is probably not for you LOL But you can do all kinds of great things with potatoes in the crock pot, for sure!
