The Ohio Beef Council Sponsors This Flavorful Delight
Before we dive into the recipe, I want to give a shout-out to the Ohio Beef Council for their support. Their mission to promote the goodness of beef aligns perfectly with this mouthwatering creation. So, let’s get started on this incredible culinary journey.
Unleashing the Power of the Crock Pot
If you’re craving a beef and broccoli-style dish but don’t want to hassle with pre-searing the meat, you’re in luck. This slow cooker recipe has got you covered! Not only is flank steak a fantastic source of protein, but when cooked in the crockpot, it becomes incredibly tender. The best part? We’re taking it up a notch by adding a medley of vegetables, making it a complete and easy dinner solution.
The Art of Cooking Flank Steak in the Crockpot
Now, let’s delve into the process. First, slice and chop your ingredients. When cutting the flank steak, keep in mind the importance of cutting against the grain for that melt-in-your-mouth tenderness. Freezing the meat for an hour beforehand makes slicing it a breeze, allowing you to achieve those perfect, thin strips.
To enhance the flavors and thicken the sauce, we’ll toss the steak strips in cornstarch. Remember, as the dish cools, the sauce will continue to thicken, giving it that irresistible consistency.
