Slow Cooker Steak and Mushrooms




½ tsp salt
½ tsp thyme
½ tsp black pepper
¼ tsp garlic powder
1 ¼ pound flank streak
1 red onion, sliced
2/3 cup beef broth
1/3 cup red wine (such as merlot)
¼ tsp tomato paste
2 tsp olive oil
1-8oz package of cremini mushrooms, sliced
1-8oz package of white mushroom, sliced
1 Tbsp flourSlow Cooker Steak and Mushrooms


Spray a broiler rack with nonstick spray. Preheat your broiler. Mix the salt, thyme, pepper and garlic together and rub mixture over the steak. Transfer the steak on the broiler pan and broil until lightly browned, about 5 minutes per side. Broil about 5 inches from the element.

While the steak is under the broiler scatter the red onion on the bottom of your slow cooker. Top with the steak. Whisk the broth, wine and tomato paste together and pour over the steak. Cover and cook until the steak and onions are fork tender, 4-6 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low.

About 35 minutes before the cooking time is up, heat the olive oil in a skillet. Add mushrooms and cook over medium high heat for about 8 minutes, stirring frequently. Cook until the mushrooms are lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle with the flour and stir constantly for one minute. Stir mushroom mixture into the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high until the mixture simmers and thickens, about 25 minutes.

Transfer the steak to a cutting board and slice across the grain.Slow Cooker Steak and Mushrooms Serve with the mushroom sauce.Slow Cooker Steak and Mushrooms

That looks so good! I love steak and mushrooms together. I never thought to use my slow cooker to make it though. Pinned.

I made this tonite, left out the wine, added a little Worcestershire sauce, and added a large yellow onion, small carrots (last hour) and yukon gold potatoes on the bottom. Awesome, I did do my skirt steak (couldn’ find flank) on high for 4 hours, nice and tender. Adding a link back on my blog, thanks!!!
