Slow Cooker Sunday: Flank Steak with Sweet Potatoes, Mushrooms and Carrots

Nothing is better than the way your house smells while cooking this in the slow cooker all day. It is mouth-watering.

I’ve recently started experimenting with different slow cooker recipes and have found that I really like the way flank steak cooks in the crock-pot. I’ve also found the secret to not drying out the meat. Use plenty of liquid! I’ve found that when the meat is not fully covered with liquid it tends to dry out and be a bit tougher.

This recipe is so simple and it turns out delicious. It’s also pretty healthy for you because there are plenty of veggies and no added oil or fat. It’s also very filling and satisfying. Perfect Sunday meal that cooks all day while you watch football!

Ingredients:
1 lb organic grass-fed flank steak
1-2 cups of organic baby carrots
1 small package of organic mushrooms
1 small organic onion, sliced
1 clove of organic garlic, minced
1 medium to large organic sweet potato, cut into bite size pieces
4 cups of organic beef stock
salt & pepper
1 teaspoon of Savory Salute seasoning from Trader Joe’s (you could also use Italian Seasoning or your favorite seasoning mix)

Directions:
Salt and pepper both sides of the steak. Line the bottom of the slow cooker with half the veggies and place the steak on top. Cover the steak with the other half of the veggies. Cover the steak and veggies with the beef stock and mix in the teaspoon of seasoning. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-5 hours.

I didn’t leave myself enough time to cook it on low so I cooked it on high for about 3 hours and then turned it to low for another 3.

Yum. The perfect Sunday dinner. The beef is so tender and the veggies are delicious after soaking up all that beef stock. You can also make a couple changes based on your preferences. You could use regular potatoes or switch out the veggies that you want to use. You could also buy a larger steak if you’re feeding more people. Just be sure to adjust the stock so you have enough.
