Cook It In The Kitchen: Crock Pot Steak Hoagies

I like to cook because as I've gotten older I've found it to be a pretty relaxing hobby. I tackled crock pot steak hoagies for the second or third time recently.

  • Eye of Round Steak thin (4-6 pieces of steak)
    *This could honestly be any kind of steak, but the bigger and thicker, the longer you'll have to cook it.
  • 2 10-12 oz. bottles of steak sauce
    *I went with the Kroger brand but if you want to splurge on A1 or something else, go for it.
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • Seasoning salt to taste (I just coated the top of all the ingredients with each of these three)
  • 1 cup of water or beef broth
    *You can substitute the steak sauce for a container of beef broth if you'd like for a more cheesesteak like experience
  • 2 green peppers
    *My wife isn't huge on peppers but if you want different kinds, add away
  • 1 onion (optional)
    *My wife isn't big on onions either so I tried fried and raw onions and I found the raw ones to be the best.
  • 1/2-1 clove of garlic or 1/2 tsp-1 tbsp of minced garlic
  • Hoagie buns
  • Shredded or sliced cheese of your choice
I threw everything but the bun in the crock pot in the morning and cooked it on high for about 7 hours; mostly because I was home all day and I could stir it occasionally. If you want to set it on low and forget about it for about 8 to 10 hours, you should be fine. I was just wanting to get the steak as tender as possible.

I wouldn't recommend any condiments unless you really want them; the steak will be flavorful enough. I've been putting the raw onions on the bottom, the steak on top, and a sprinkling shredded cheese on top.

Be ready to make a mess too, if you manage to eat this cleanly, you didn't enjoy it enough.
