Cooking dinner in a crock pot saves time and energy. Your dinner can cook while you are out doing other things or at work and when you arrive home you have a meal waiting for you.
This recipe for flank steak is delicious. Because flank can be a tough piece of meat, the long cooking ensures tender meat.
You will need:
1 (1 1/2-pound) flank steak, cut in half
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 large onion, sliced
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup water
1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 1/4 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Brown the flank steak in a pan with some oil and when it browns on the outside, place it into the crock pot.
Saute the onions in the same pan and oil.
Now add your water to this pan and stir to loosen up cooked bit left behind...hopefully not burnt ones.
Add the rest of the ingredients and pour it all over the flank steak in the crock pot. Cover and cook for 8 hours.
Now all you need do is make rice, potatoes or noodles and a vegetable and dinner is ready.
