“I made this tonight when I wasn't sure what else to make. I used flank steak. This is more appropriate for sandwiches and serve on big, crusty onion rolls. YUM! Instead, we had this on rice... no rolls. :( It came out mighty tasty. It's a semi-homemade recipe, using bottled BBQ sauce. You could also spoon the leftovers over a baked potato or pasta. The recipe can be expanded for more servings or potlucks.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb flank steak, sliced on the diagonal (thin)
  • 12 medium red onions or 14 cup diced shallot
  • 1 small tomatoes, diced
  • 34 cup prepared barbecue sauce (I used Hickory-Brown Sugar flavor)
  • 14 cup pasta sauce (I used Traditional Prego)
  • salt and pepper
  • flour, see NOTE at the bottom of directions (optional)


  1. Slice steak in thin pieces.
  2. Place in crock-pot (I grease mine with a little olive oil--1 Tbsp).
  3. Chop onion and tomato.
  4. Add on top of beef.
  5. Pour the two sauces over beef and vegies.
  6. (You could add a little salt and pepper, at this point, but I wait until it's done to see if it needs it.).
  7. Cook on HIGH,1-2 hours; LOW 4 hours. (I cooked mine on HIGH) for a little over an hour).
  8. Serve on rolls, rice, baked potatoes, pasta -- YOUR choice. It's good stuff, even though it's not totally homeade.
  9. NOTE: You might want to add 1/2 - 1 Tbsp flour (give it a quick stir) about 1/2 hour before it's done, if you like a thicker sauce. When I made this as a topping for rice, it came out kind of thin. I think I will add the flour next time when I have this for sandwiches.
