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)

Entire Steak Dinner...in the Crock Pot!

 

So basically, as you can see, at this point it looks like a crock pot full of foil!

New Product Try-Outs: Crock Pot White Chicken Chili

Well, you know me, when I find a fantastic product I do love to share it! And this one is no exception.

We all love our Crock Pots, right? I find that, especially on Mondays, when it’s hard to get back into the swing of things after the weekend, it’s easy to throw stuff in the Crock Pot or slow cooker and come home to a nice dinner. One less thing to worry about after a long day! But I’ve found something that makes it even easier than that…

Do you have a Crock Pot?

If your answer is no, stop reading right now and go get one! I’m serious! They’re that wonderful!

Since I work full-time and do lots of other things on the side, sometimes it’s hard to find time to cook. Although I really enjoy cooking (it’s pretty much my “me” and “creative” time), there are days when time is simply not on my side. On those days, I break out the Crock Pot.

Here’s the kind I have.
