Flank Steak Crock Pot Dinner

Flank Steak Crock Pot Dinner

It only took 7 months to find a great recipe that just so happens to be 21 day fix approved, simple, takes less time to dig out your crock pot then it does to put the ingredients together.  I truly love cooking with Flank steaks due to how lean of a cut of meat it is.  Flank is a relatively inexpensive, thin, trapezoidal shaped, lean, very specifically grained steak.  We buy all of our red meat generally from a local farmer however I purchase our flank steak from Wegman’s (most grocery stores carry this cut).

HOWEVER every time I cook with it, It never turned out very moist.  And let’s face it our taste buds will determine if it’s a hit or if our husbands say “this is good make it again”. 


Mom’s if your thinking I don’t have time to cook healthy and I have a family of picky eaters try this.  In the last few months my time in the kitchen has been limited but I still want to provide a healthy meal.  Monday’s and Wednesday I work outside of the home for our traditional business and the day is full to say the least so the crock pot is to the rescue.
So it's this simple:
Crock pot- low heat for 6 to 8 hours depending on your crock pot.
Place 1 lbs Flank steak in crock pot
2 cups of water
3 tablespoons of olive oil
1 packet of Grill Mates Montreal steak marinade

From that I walked away and came home to a house smelling amazing paired with sweet potatoes and green beans.  Family meal everyone loved!!  Try it let me know what your family thinks of it.

  1. Hi, do I follow the instructions on the marinade mix packet, and then add to the crockpot or do I just add the marinade mix from the packet into the crock pot? Thanks!
