The only thing I regret about this recipe is the fact that I completely failed at taking attractive photos of it. Steak is a favorite in my house and when this sucker came out of the crock pot, Rich and I couldn’t wait to get our hands on it. So much so that we ate most of it before I realized I hadn’t yet taken any photos for my blog!

I ended up taking photos of what was left on the cutting board. I think it demonstrates how tender the meat was. (wishful thinking?)

Attractive photo or not, this recipe is a fail-proof crowd pleaser that melts in your mouth. It’s smoking without the smoker! All you need is a crock pot, a few simple ingredients and time to let it cook. Low and slow is the way to go! lol

Crock Pot Smoked Flank Steak

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: PT6-8H

Total Time: PT6-8H10M

Serving Size: Makes 4-6 servings

Crock Pot Smoked Flank Steak


  • 1/2 cup Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/4 cup liquid smoke
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons onion powder
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 lbs grass fed Flank Steak (or smaller if you have a smaller crock pot)
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil


  1. Pour olive oil into heated pan on stove top. Sear meat for 2-3 minutes on each side.
  2. Place all ingredients (excluding meat) in Crock Pot and stir well.
  3. Settle seared meat into the mixture in the Crock Pot making sure your steak is well immersed in the sauce.
  4. Set Crock Pot on low heat and cook for 6-8 hours.
  5. Remove and slice against the grain.


I set my crock pot for 7 hours based on when I thought I'd be home from the gym. I believe I ended up taking out the flank steak after about 6.5 hours of cooking. It was cooked perfectly. I also used two 1 lb steaks instead of 1 large filet.
