Crock Pot Flank Steak with Goat Cheese & Almonds

The long days of summer are upon us. As the temperatures rise, kids are home from school, and you are worn out from long days, it’s easy to push cooking aside.

Instead of grabbing a quick meal from the place down the street, crank up the crock pot and sink your teeth into this tasty flank steak with goat cheese and almonds!

Marinade:

1/2 cup raw honey
1/2 cup gluten-free soy sauce
1 1/2-3 lb flank steak
Combine all ingredients and marinade overnight.

 

Filling:
3/4 cup goat cheese with fig (can also use plain goat cheese or feta)
1 apple chopped (ok to leave skin on)
1/3 cup chopped almonds
Combine all ingredients.

 

Place steak with marinade into crock pot while preparing filling.  Lay steak on a platter or cutting board to assemble with filling.  Spread filling on top of the steak.  Roll up from one side and secure with twine and place seam side down in crock pot.  Cook 6-8 hours depending on your crock pot.  Slice and serve, and you can garnish with additional cheese sprinkles.

 

Enjoy!

  1. Quick question…and I didn’t watch the video so perhaps this was addressed in the video and I just didn’t see.

    I know from grilling flank steak that it is crucial to cut against the grain when slicing and serving, or else you end up with a piece of meat that is impossible to chew. When crocking rather than grilling do you also find it necessary to cut against the grain?

    It looks delicious and I am curious to try the flank steak cooked this way. Typically we grill it and serve on top of an asian noodle stir fry with red peppers and cabbage.

    • Kate – I’ve never paid attention to the way I cut flank steak either after grilling or from the crock pot. I think the reason for this is that when we grill flank steak it is in a marinade for 24+ hours before grilling. When it is in a crock pot for 6-8 hrs it is very tender. The meat either grilled or crock pot isn’t chewy if I cut with or against the grain.

      Hope this helps you out and you are able to enjoy your your next flank steak.

  2. Sorry to be so negative but this was my experience with this recipe:

    I went against my mom’s advice (she has worked in the beef industry for 30+ years) and made this according to the recipe. It was awful. The meat was dry and stringy. We had to throw an expensive dinner in the trash. I should have listened to my mom. She told me that flank steak should not go in the crock pot. It’s a very expensive piece of meat and does not need to be slow cooked. Save your crock pot for tough, cheap meat.
