well, here i am at work today and the girls wanted to come to my place. perfect! i can clean up a little, do some dishes and make dinner! i decided on steak sandwiches tonight because we have so much venison in the freezer, and last night was more of a potluck dinner. i expect the kids to come home starving today because it’s “winter fun day” at school, so i want to fill their bellies!
i found a recipe online, but tweeked it according to what i have in my pantry. crock pot’s are the best because it makes dinner for you while you are doing whatever else you need… perfect for busy families.
here’s the recipe!
add 1 1/2 to 2 lbs of steak to crock pot with 1 1/2 to 2 onions, sliced.
in separate bowl, mix 1 cup of ketchup, 1/2 cup water and 1/3 cup lemon juice.
add to bowl 2 TBSP apple cider vinegar, 3 TBSP brown sugar, 1 tsp mustard and 1 tsp salt.
optional add: 1/3 cup worchestershire sauce [i used 1/4 cup duffy’s bloody mary seasoning sauce]
sprinkle on hot sauce, chili powder and black pepper to taste.
cook for 6 hours on high in crock pot.
after completed, shred steak with fork or serve in pieces. serve on rolls.
it’s that easy!
prep literally took me 10 minutes and the hardest part was cutting the onions! we all added some marinade to our sandwiches… just to add a little something… and as a side note, we used venison steak, but any steak you enjoy will do!
