Can I cook steak in a slow cooker?
Short answer, absolutely! When you cook steak in the slow cooker, you can pretty much guarantee more savory and tender meat. You may have heard that it is better to sear steak before putting it in a crock pot, but this only speeds up the cooking time. In some cases, it can also add a caramelized flavor. You can even make Slow Cooker Tri Tip, or Slow Cooker Steak Bites.
With all the ingredients in this recipe, you won’t have to worry about there not being enough liquid or flavor. Crock pot steak is super easy and delicious comfort food and is sure to become a family favorite! This is one of those slow cooker meals that will be one of your most favorite recipes.
- Steak: Sirloin steak that is cut into cubes.
- Red Potatoes: These small potatoes cook perfectly without getting overly mushy.
- Corn on the Cob: If you can grab some fresh corn from the local Farmer’s Market, even better! You’ll only need two to three as they’ll be cut into half or thirds. You may also want to try my slow cooker corn on the cob recipe.
- Butter: A must-have to cook the steak, corn, and potatoes and to help mix the seasonings while slowly cooking.
- Seasonings: Garlic, thyme, salt and pepper, onion powder, rosemary, and paprika combine to create a tasty flavor.
Step One – Add the halved corn to one side of the slow cooker.
Step Two – Add potatoes to the other side.
Step Three – Add the cubed steak in the middle.
Step Four – Add the melted butter, chopped garlic, salt, pepper, paprika, thyme, rosemary, and onion powder to a small bowl. Mix until well combined.
Step Five – Pour the seasoned steak seasoning mixture over the steak, potatoes, and corn.
Step Six – Cook on LOW for 5-6 hours or until the potatoes are tender.
- You can switch up the cut of steak you use (see options below in FAQs).
- If you’d like a gravy to pour over the steak and potatoes, consider whipping one up with onion soup mix and beef stock. To make it thick, add a cornstarch and water mixture until you get the desired thickness.
- Adding more vegetables is another great idea for making this meal even more hearty. Carrots, broccoli, and sliced bell pepper are just a few that pair well with this steak and potatoes meal.

For this recipe, no. The melted butter mixture will keep anything from sticking during the slow cooking process.

No. The red potatoes are small and will naturally soften during the cooking time. If larger potatoes are used, cut them in half or quarter.
