Slow cooker meals are perfect for busy people! These slow cooker steak sandwiches are ready to assemble and eat after the steak has slow cooked all day while you're busy being busy.
I love my slow cooker. Its ridiculous, but I pine for it all summer long and use it far too often in the winter, because for some mysterious reason, the Crock Pot is off limits during the warmer months. It's perfect for getting out the door and having supper on the table and ready when you walk through the door (not to mention that awesome smell of delicious that fills your home).
That is until you're sitting at work for four hours not sure if you actually turned the slow cooker on or not. Go me.
I know, the suspense is killing you right? It was for me. Luckily I had indeed remembered to actually turn it on and we didn't have to order out for supper tonight.
Slow Cooker Steak Sandwiches
a la me and my pantry
- 2 lbs top round, London broil or flank steak cut into ¼" to ½"inch slices
- salt and pepper
- ½ bell pepper, sliced
- 1 small onion, sliced
- ¼ cup beef broth
- 1 tbs tabasco (we use Chipotle Tabasco)
- 2 tbs A1 Steak Sauce
- 3 tbs Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teas Montreal Steak Seasoning
- ¼ teas garlic powder
- ½ teas onion salt
- ¼ teas red pepper flakes
- 4 steak rolls
- 4 slices of provolone cheese
Season meat with salt and pepper. Place sliced pepper and onion in the bottom of a slow cooker. Layer meat on top. Whisk beef broth through pepper flakes in a bowl. Pour over the meat and vegetables.
Cook on low for 4 hours. Serve on toasted rolls with provolone or cheese of your choice.
Handsome started school again tonight. He has late evening classes three nights a week, so I have to get back into the swing of late night meals.
What's great about this slow cooker dish (much like those granola bars) is the versatility. Change a few spices and you have great fajita meat waiting for you. Substitute the beef for poultry. Use soy sauce instead of steak seasonings, add some garlic and serve over rice for a quick Asian inspired dish. Can't go wrong. 🙂
