“This is an AWESOME IDEA!” A steak dinner in the Crock-Pot!
And not the kind where everything takes on the same flavor but a true steak, potato and corn on the cob dinner. How might this be done you ask? Well it is quite simple and only 4 ingredients are needed. Yep, ONLY 4 ingredients! Steak, potatoes, frozen corn on the cob and steak sauce. I guess it’s 5 if you count the foil.
Now I cleaned it up just a smidge….. The only major change was using organic steak sauce. I wanted to avoid all those processed sugars and preservatives. And you really could use your own homemade sauce or marinade. That is what I will try next time.
Simply place one or two 3/4 inch steaks in the bottom of a Crock-Pot. I like to use rib-eye, they seem to be the most moist. But I have used a London broil too, a bit drier but so tender it falls apart. (London-broil is pictured here – it was on sale and I couldn’t pass it up)
Back to my recipe. After you place your steak in the Crock-Pot pour 1/2 cup steak sauce on top, and cover it with a layer of foil. Push that foil down, right on top of the steak, tucking it in all cozy and keeping the juices away from potatoes and corn.
Next wrap 4 small to medium potatoes in foil (wash and poke them with a fork first). Place them on top of the foil covered steak.
Finally wrap 4 or 5 nib-let size frozen ears of corn in foil and add them to the crock pot.
Cover the pot and cook it on low for 6 hours. That is it! Leave for work and come home to a steak dinner!
I think I will try the same method with chicken covered in barbecue sauce…and maybe sweet potatoes….
Note: On the Portion Fix Plan make sure and portion out your servings! I always add a salad or green veggie to this meal to round it out. For me I do 1 red (meat) 2 yellow (potato and corn) and add in a salad or green veggie for a green. When I am short on yellows I skip the corn.

Hi! This is Donna. I am a grandmother, mom, wife, and a teacher. I also love cookbooks, love to bake and really enjoy food! At age 56 I have developed a love of fitness after losing 46 pounds on the 21 Day Fix! I have always struggled with my weight! When menopause struck and things got totally out of control… My weight only went up not down. My muffin top turned into a bakery shelf. I desperately wanted to lose weight and improve my health. I wanted to be able to play and keep up with my beautiful grandchildren. Nothing I tried worked until I found the 21 Day Fix. Now instead of a tight size 16 I wear a comfortable 8 and even some 6’s! At age 56 I am in the best shape of my life. My current goals are to improve my strength and to continue toning my body. I along with my daughter, Danielle, am here to help you reach your own fitness goals! You are never too young or old to become fitter, healthier, and stronger!
