  1. Season the flank steak with salt and pepper and place into a slow cooker. Add the carrot and onion; season with thyme and bay. Pour in the water.
  2. Cook on High for 4 hours; turn the steak over and press down into the liquid. Continue cooking until a fork easily passes through the meat, about 4 hours more.

Since this is the first time I have made this recipe, I followed the directions exactly. That was a mistake. I'm sure the cooking time is off. * hours on high for a 3 lb piece of meat produced a stringy mess. Parts of it had to be discarded because they were impossible to chew. Maybe this would work on low for 8 hours.


After i made this, i decided that Flank Steak is one thing that DEFINATLY should NOT be made in a slow cooker. I think you're better off just marinading for a couple hours then making it in the oven or on the grill.


This turned out great! I would add more onions and carrots next time. The cook time is off. I cooked about 2.7 lbs of flank steak in the crock pot for about 5 hours on low. It was tender considering the type of meat, and cooked to perfection. DEFINITELY do not cook on high for 8 hours! I was at home and was able to keep an eye on it. The taste was perfect. This was my first time cooking flank steak and would probably just buy chuck roast next time because it is more of a tender cut and is cheaper from what I can tell. Not sure of the benefit of flank over chuck. Taste wise, not overpowering, but throw in some extra veggies.
