crock pot shredded bbq beef (flank steak)

Patty Cassatt


Came up with this receipe on a whim and it was a hit. Never used flank steak in a crock pot before and was not sure how it would come out and after eating this I will use flank steak in the crock pot not only because I enjoyed it but because the hubby really wanted seconds and kept telling me it reminded him of his favorite bbq restraunt.

4 to 6 people


15 Min


8 Hr


1 pkg
beef flank steak(1 1/2 to 2 lbs)
3 large
onions (i like sweet ones) cut into nice pieces
1/2 c
water, cold
1 bottle
sweet baby rays bbq sauce (or your favorite)
3 clove
garlic (chopped, fresh or pre-chopped)

Directions Step-By-Step

pour water into crock pot add bbq sauce and stir to blend
rough chop onions into nice pieces..they will shrink during the cooking process (I used 3 time i might add 1 more we love onions)
add onions to mixture in crock pot
chop 3 fresh cloves of garlic or use 3 table spoons of pre chopped garlic and add to crockpot
add your flank steak to the pot and make sure the steak is covered by the bbq sauce/water mixture (you can add alittle more water if needed)
cook for 8 hrs on low
stir..this will help the flank steak shred
I served ours over mashed potatoes and served with fresh green beans..for left overs I toasted some onion rolls with a little butter in the oven and made shredded bbq beef sandwiches
