Thursday, April 30, 2009

There's nothing I love more than barbecue! But who has enough time to grill out that often?

So I let my slow cooker do the work for me!

I discovered this tasty recipe in Weight Watchers In Good Time: 123 Slow Cooker Recipes to Come Home To.

I hope you enjoy it!


  • 2 (1.25 pound) flank steaks

  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar, divided

  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 (6 ounces) can of tomato paste

  • 1 cup chopped onion

  • 1 cup ketchup

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 2 tablespoons molasses

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard

  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard

  • 12 (2.5 ounce) sandwich buns with sesame seeds, split

  • 24 red onion rings

  • 36 dill pickles


  1. Trim fat from steaks; cut each steak in half crosswise.

  2. Combine 1 tablespoon brown sugar and pepper; stir well.

  3. Rub steaks with sugar mixture.

  4. Place remaining brown sugar, tomato paste, and next 9 ingredients in a 4/5 quart electric slow cooker; stir well.

  5. Add steaks, turning to coat.

  6. Cook on high heat setting for 1 hour.

  7. Reduce to low heat setting and cook 7 to 8 hours or until steak is tender.

  8. Remove steak from slow cooker, reserving sauce in cooker.

  9. Shred steak with fork. Return shredded steak to cooker; stir well to coat with sauce.

  10. Spoon 1/2 cup steak mixture onto bottom half of each bun; top each with 2 onion rings and 3 pickle slices.

Yields 12 Servings. 8 points/serving.

Hmmm ... makes me want to get out my slow cooker (I guess they don't call them 'crock pots' any more, eh?)
Hugs and blessings,
