Crockpot Flank Steak with a Kick!

Flank Steak with a Kick is a fantastic recipe for your slow cooker! Flank Steak on its own isn’t extremely tender, however with you combine it with the spices below and allow it to cook all day in your crockpot, it falls apart with the poke of a fork! While my husband and I love spicy, we are just beginning to slowly introduce more recipes with a subtle spice to our toddlers. The chili powder in this recipe does the perfect job of adding that ‘subtle kick’ without it scaring away those who do not like spicy! This steak recipe is perfect for tacos, sandwiches, salads, with rice, or even by itself! This is the perfect slow cooker recipe for families with children of all ages! 


  • 1 flank steak (about 1-1/2 lbs.), (cut it in half if you have a small Crock pot)
  • 1 Tbsp. oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 can (4 oz.) chopped green chilies
  • 2 Tbsp. vinegar
  • 1 tsp. chili powder (or with chipotle chili powder)
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper


1. First, brown the steak in a pan on the stove before placing in the crockpot.

2.  In the same skillet, sauté onion until lightly brown. Gradually add the water and remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Pour over the flank steak.

3. Cover and cook on low for about 8 hours or until the meat is tender. Slice meat and serve with the onion and pan juices.



The ‘I’m In a Big Hurry’ Method: 

1. Toss everything into the crockpot, put the lid on and cook on low for 8 hours!

{Yes, I have done this a few times and it turned out great as well!}
