I'm not a fan of ground beef, but I like the flavor of sloppy joes. This recipe incorporates the flavor of the classic sandwich with the lean cut of flank steak and the ease of a slow cooker.

Directions

  1. Sprinkle the beef flank steak with steak seasoning on both sides. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat until the oil shimmers, and place the flank steak into the hot oil. Quickly brown the steak on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Set the beef aside.
  2. Stir brown sugar, onion, red bell pepper, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, tomato sauce, and tomato paste together in a slow cooker until the brown sugar dissolves. Place the flank steak into the slow cooker, immersing it in the sauce. Set the cooker on on High and cook 4 hours, or set on Low and cook 8 hours.
  3. To serve, shred the meat with 2 forks, or remove the meat, chop, and return to the sauce. Toast buns, and serve the sloppied steak on the toasted buns.

this was REALLY good!! About 3/4 way through the cooking time I took the steak out to chop it and almost threw it out, the sauce looked so watery and lacked flavor. but i went ahead and chopped the meat up and let it cook another hour and a half. so glad i did because it ended up being delicious. DH loved it. Only thing I did different was double the tomato paste, because i had a can and didn't want to waste it. also added an extra tablespoon of sugar to balance out the extra paste. Would have rather had it over noodles or rice instead of sandwiches, but that's personal preference and i will make it that way next time. thanks for sharing.

Honestly, I'm not crazy about crock pot recipes, but this is one I most likely will make again. The shredded meat remained tough after 7 hours on high, so I cooked it another 1-1/2 hours. IMO the tomato flavor really dominates the sauce, almost overpowering the flavor of the beef. I think some fresh chopped garlic and maybe even a little soy sauce would add some tang to this. Served on AR's Hamburger Buns along with cole slaw and baked beans. Overall, a solid crock pot recipe.

I tried this last night and it had great flavor. I did shred the meat and let it warm for about an hour before serving. The only other change I would make is taking the steak out, slicing it and then shredding. It was a little hard to eat but again, the flavor was very good.
