I love a crockpot meal. I love a flank steak. Why in the world had I never thought to put these two wonderful things together? Beats me, but now that I finally have you can see the magic. This is a super easy recipe that is also super clean. I’m talking only veggies, flank steak, which we all know is a wonderfully lean cut of meat, a little apple cider vinegar and you are basically DONE. The end result is a flavorful, so tender it will just fall apart, steak with tender vegetables all in one pot. And a pot that you haven’t paid a bit of mind to since the time you hit the “on” button. Again, magical! Here’s what you do:
Flavor Crock Pot Flank Steak
What you need:
2 lbs or more flank steak, cut into about 4 pieces
1 red bell pepper and one yellow bell pepper, cut into strips
1 cup matchstick carrots
1 onion, chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped
2-4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 14 oz can diced tomatoes
1 14 oz can diced tomatoes with onions and garlic
1 T apple cider vinegar
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp ground cumin
salt and pepper to taste
What you do:
Place the flank steak in the bottom of a crock pot and cover with the rest of the ingredients. Cover and cook low for about 8 hours. Keep on warm until ready to eat.
With two forks, shred the pieces of flank steak into loose chunks. I did this while the meat was still in the crockpot, but you can remove it if easier and just add the meat back for serving.
This was a GREAT meal to have on a busy weeknight – after a long work day, full day of after school activities or sporting events, or just a day you don’t want to be in the kitchen too long! As you can see I served with a side of sautéed spinach, and we all know how quickly you can whip up the spinach! As always, use whatever vegetables you have on hand! I hope I’ve given you an idea to help make your weeknight easier – AND healthier!
Have you cooked flank steak in a crockpot? Am I just that late to the game? Do you just love a crockpot as much as I do???
ENJOY YOUR DAY!
