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.
