This was a super fun one. Wanted to make a philly steak, but w/ a twist & this really was an amazing crock.
The crock experience started w/ appetizer – Bud Light Clamato, thank you lady friend. Out of left field always makes your morning football boozing more acceptable & it is some sort of fruit/veg so you don’t need to feel bad about it @ 10am…right?
Keep in mind I did provide, carrots, celery & cali w/ a perfectly aged ranch creaming or semi-solid food product.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 pound thinly sliced sirloin steak strips (ask your butcher & they’ll lead you in right direction)
- 8 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms (dark crini)
- 1 green bell pepper, seeded and cut into strips
- 1 medium onion, sliced
- 6 slices provolone cheese
- 1 loaf French bread (find a longer / thinner one than I did)
- 1 (14 ounce) can beef broth
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 3 cloves garlic diced
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1/4 cup Pinot Noir – super cheap is fine
- 2 tablespoons cup prepared horseradish
- 2 tablespoons cup brown mustard
- Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the beef, & cook until browned – pull from skillet – you don’t want to overcook.
- Add the mushrooms, bell pepper and onion; cook this stuff up until limp – transfer to crock.
- Add the beef broth, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, red pepper flakes and red wine to the crock.
- Cover, and cook on High for 4 hours, until beef is extremely tender.
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Put the liquid in container & save for dippin’. Trust me, this makes you happy.
- Slice the French bread loaf in 1/2.
- Mix together the horseradish and mustard; spread onto each side of loaf.
- Put the provolone slices on each side – put that bitch together.
- Wrap the loaf in foil- bake fo 15+ minutes in the preheated oven.
- 2 sweet potatoes – sliced in 1/4 in sticks
- coat w/ olive oil
- add dash of seat salt & coarse grd. pepper – toss it around like you just don’t care
- Put in pre-heated oven 10 mins before adding the sandwich
- turn once @ 7 mins or so & cook for extra 7 mins
Please, if you haven’t tried a rock out w/ your crock out yet, do this one. Or, at least git yer old lady to get up @ 7am to make this delicious meal for you ready at noon… I said noon woman (man).
