Can You Cook Steak in Your Slow Cooker?

Yes! Slow cooking steak is a wonderful way to make savory and tender fillets each time. Slow cooking steak for hours on end allows for the flavors to fully saturate the meat, resulting in a truly mouth-watering, delectable dish. Whether you're looking for a simple recipe or a slightly more elaborate steak dish, both can be seamlessly made in a slow cooker.

As these recipes call for searing the steak first, it's a great opportunity to take advantage of the Crock-Pot® 6-Quart Slow Cooker with Stovetop-Safe Cooking Pot. This innovative slow cooker condenses two steps into one, allowing for the versatility of searing, browning or sauteing ingredients directly in the slow cooker's double-duty DuraCeramic® cooking pot. With one flawless move, you can bring your browned steak from the stovetop, right back into your slow cooker without missing a beat. This also makes cleanup easier as there's no need to dirty extra pots and pans.
