I started making this layered dinner when we were just married. I had a 6 quart crock pot, far too big for only two people. I was putting a poor quality cut of steak into slow cook one morning and there was all this space leftover. I thought I'd try putting in the potatoes (I was using sweet potatoes.) and corn too. It was such a flavorful meal and so well cooked. My husband couldn't believe we walked in the door to it that night. I liked it because it wasn't just a soup or stew in the slow cooker and this led me to try lots of other meals too. I'll be posting more about that later in this series.
Now, I have a crock pot that has three interchangeable crocks in 2, 4, and 6 quarts. If I'm making this meal sans the corn, I use the 4 quart crock. If you're a smaller family, just adjust the amount of food and use a smaller crock.
I have a recipe coming for a whole chicken using this method!
5 steaks (or 1& 1/2 pounds)
1/4 cup Worchestireshire sauce
2 tablespoons tequila
1 tablespoon A 1 steak sauce
1 teaspoon garlic & pepper seasoning
(or any combination of spices or marinade you'd like, just not too much liquid!)
5 ears of corn
Mix Worchestireshire sauce, tequila, A1 sauce, and garlic & pepper seasoning (or whatever you're using for marinade) in a bowl.
Pour over steak.
Wash and wrap potatoes in foil. Place in crock pot on top of steak.
Shuck, wash, and wrap corn in foil. Place in crock pot on top of potatoes.
Set on high for 6 hours or low for 8.
Easy peasy, right?
