I have a london broil that needs to be used, and it's too cold outside to grill. Could I do it in my crock pot? Does it need to be totally thawed first?

I put 3 frozen chicken breasts 1/2 cup of water, a 8 oz block of cream cheese, and a packet of dry Italian dressing seasoning, in the crock pot. I cook it for 3 to 4 hours. It tastes really yummy with broccolli and green beans.

I love London broil in the crock pot, because it turns into GREAT shredded beef. I have done it with onion, green chiles and taco seasoning (rub the broil with the taco seasoning) for a mexican style shredded beef and it was VERY tender and delicious! I would probably add a little tomato sauce to it too, next time, to up the flavor.

Oh yeah, you can definitely still use it. Even if it's a little discolored, at this stage that's likely just oxidization and won't change the taste.

I ended up throwing mine in the crock pot with some beef stock, wine and seasonings-- not sure if I would do it that way again. It peeled apart with a fork, but was pretty dry since the liquid didn't really seem to penetrate. Way too dry to eat alone. I transferred the liquid to a sauce pan and heated it with some cream, sour cream, and Thicken Thin, and turned the whole thing into beef stroganoff (served over noodles for DH).

Next time I think I would brown the steak in a pan first and season it, and then put it in the crock pot without liquid and then turn it into shredded beef for tacos or whatever like KrystaLyn suggests.

Shredded Mexican Chicken

*note: I have a huge crockpot so I make a huge batch of this you can adjust accordingly to your crockpot, it would be really hard to screw this up!

bag of frozen chicken breasts
1 jar of salsa
6 cloves of garlic, minced (use more or less depending on your garlic preference)
spices: cumin, chili powder, cilantro (dried or fresh), paprika, oregano, salt and pepper
chicken broth (1-2 cans) - *can substitute with water if you don't have broth on hand.

Place chicken (thawed) in crockpot with salsa, broth, garlic and sprinkle spices and cook on high 4-6 hours when cooked through and tender shred with fork and return to juices. Serve with cheese and sour cream or on lc tortillas.

Pepperoncini beef


Any size pot roast (chuck roast or shoulder/butt)
1 clove chopped garlic
Sea salt and white pepper to taste
1 jar pepperoncini peppers
1/2 cue beef stock

Rub the roast with salt and pepper
Use a small amount of olive oil in the crock
Place roast, garlic beef stock and jar of peppers in crock
Cook 6-8 hours or until tender

*I usually add a dash of green tobacco for a spicier kick

As far as I know this has maybe 2 carbs all told. Enjoy!

GoJenGo, or anybody that might know:

For this recipe below, (it was posted early on in this thread), it lists 1 1/2 C Beef Boullion...........does she mean 1 1/2 cubes or 1 1/2 cups? I've only used boullion in cubes before,........do they sell it as a powder or a liquid, or something? Sorry to sound so stupid, but I was slightly confused when I read it. And this dish sounds sooooo good, that I want to make it. I appreciate any insight anyone may have on this.

Crockpot Beef Stroganoff

Lo Carb Beef Stroganoff in Crockpot

2 lb round steak
1 1/2 C beef bouillon
1 tsp salt--1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 lb fresh mushrooms
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1 C sour cream

Cut steak into 1/4 in strips. Coat with salt and pepper. Drop into the bottom of a crock pot. Mix garlic, salt, and bouillon. Pour over the meat. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or until tender. Turn control to high. Add mushrooms. Cook on high 15 min or until slightly thickened. Stir in sour cream. Turn off heat & serve.

Linda you can just reconstitute the bullion cube with water per the directions on the container. Usually 1 cube plus 1 cup of water for 1 cup of liquid bullion.

You can also just buy the liquid version ready to use.

It is usually on the soup aisle Linda =)

There is also bullion paste and I've seen commercials recently for a concentrated bullion gel too.

So it was okay, but very tender and shredded great - I made it into a taco salad with lettuce, mayonaisse, salsa and guacamole.
