Complete Steak Dinner in a Crock Pot

This most excellent and simple to make supper comes courtesy of 5 Dinners in 1 Hour.

The only problem I had with this recipe was self-made.  I love baked potatoes.  Really, really LOVE baked potatoes.  So, when I purchase bakers, I typically buy HUGE potatoes.  Problem is, they weren’t cooked all the way through when everything else was ready.  I tossed the three of them into the microwave for about five minutes, though, and solved that problem!

OH, and also, I put my steaks in FROZEN and started on HIGH for 4 hours, then turned to LOW for the remaining 2 hours.  You know me, I can’t follow directions perfectly, I always have to do something different!


steaks (I purchased 4)

1/2 cup A1 Steak Sauce (or Heinz 57)

baked potatoes, 1 per person (caution: not too big!)

corn on the cob (I used fresh, original recipe says you can use frozen)


canola oil spray

butter spray

Place steaks on bottom of crock pot.  Pour steak sauce over top.

Take a layer of foil, spray it with canola oil and set oil-side down on steaks.

Wrap potatoes in foil, set them on top of steaks.

If using frozen corn, wrap individually in foil, set along side of potatoes.


Set on LOW for 6 hours.

Now, if you were like me and used frozen steaks, here’s what I did:

Set frozen steaks on bottom of crock pot and cover with steak sauce.  Cover with layer of foil (sprayed side down).  Set foil-wrapped potatoes on top of steaks.


Set on HIGH for 4 hours.  At the end of 4 hours, remove potatoes and slide steaks around to separate them.  Top with potatoes.

Set on LOW for 2 hours.  Then, if you have fresh corn, spray with butter spray and wrap individually.  Set on top of steaks and potatoes.  Let cook for about 20 minutes.



Let the steaks rest for 5 minutes before serving.


My potato sort of exploded when I squeezed it open to butter LOL

  1. […] made this on April 13 and wasn’t 100% happy with the way it turned out, so decided to try it again.  I’ll […]

  2. Going to throw this down with boneless skinless chicken breasts and BBQ sauce for dinner tonight. Really excited to try it out!

  3. I am doing this today. I used a nice, thick London Broil. Think it will turn out ok? I also got some of the new Montreal Seasonings steak sauce. Can’t wait to see how it turns out!

    • Erica, how did it turn out?

    • My family loves the Montreal Seasonings!! They really add a nice flavor!!

  4. I loved this. I used a thick London broil for this as well and used Montreal steak rub. It worked great.It was nice and tender and not over-done.

    • So glad that it turned out for you! My son is crazy for that Montreal steak rub 🙂

  5. Made this tonight with chuck steak and it was wonderful. Steak was fork tender and so tasty. Corn was crispy tender. I buttered mine before wrapping in the foil. Will definitely make again and was thinking of trying with pork chops and sweet potatoes.

    • Marilyn, I’m glad it worked out well for you! I love the pork chop and sweet potato idea 🙂

  6. I made this dinner last night. I used pork chops and it was delicious. The corn was so tender and even better I thought than fresh corn. I did it on high for 4 1/2 hours. Making this again for sure.

    • That’s great, Linda!

  7. I followed the recipe and my steaks were frozen. So I am going to leave them on low around six hours and check them when I get back from work!

    • Jacci, how did they turn out?

  8. I made this meal for my family and they loved it. My daughter says to me mom can you make it again tomorrow. Thank you.

    • Yay, Evelyn! I’m so glad it turned out so well.

  9. I have two cowboy steaks. How long do you think I’ll have to cook them for?

    • Same amount as the other steaks is what I’m thinking. Let me know how they turn out.

  10. my family enjoyed this so much. it was requested again. i made it using a different cut of steak. still awesome !!!!

    • Great!

  11. I made this and my steaks were terribly dry. I followed the recipe exactly. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    • Patricia: Try adding more sauce or about 1/4 cup of water to the sauce (will be more like gravy). The secret is to cover the meat.

      • Connie,

        Thank you so much for your reply. I will try that.:)

  12. I’m going to try this with Ribeyes, has anyone tried it that way?

    • No, but I bet they’d e wonderful We love ours rare so wouldn’t let them cook as long as originally stated.

  13. How did the steak turn out cooked wise…were they medium or well or medium well? My husband and I like our steaks just well done. Thinking about making this today and am considering the cooking times. Thanks!

  14. Usually the leaner the steak the dryer it will be when done try to leave some of the fatty part on.
