Easy & Juicy Ribeye
Today I went to the supermarket and purchased two bone-in ribeyes.

I’ve cooked them before in my slow cooker for four hours. But this time, I did it differently. I sprinkled the steaks generously with seasoning and put them in the crockpot and didn’t cover them with foil. It didn’t dawn on me until two-and-a-half hours later that I forgot to wrap them in foil. The last time I cooked them in the slow cooker, I also added sweet potatoes.
When I remembered, I took out the steaks, added barbecue sauce to them, covered them with foil, and cooked them for another thirty minutes.
The steak turned out great. I just love this way of cooking steaks. No oven heating up the kitchen on a hot day. Quick way to serve a steak dinner.
Though I don’t usually cook vegetables in the microwave, I did for this meal. The veggies included sweet peas (with a tablespoon of sugar and a tad of butter) and Charro (pinto) beans.
Some meat I’ve cooked in the slow cooker haven’t turned out as good as the steak. I’ve tried pork chops, hamburger patties, and chicken and have been pleased overall. When any of the recipes don’t do as I had expected, I keep trying again until it comes out just right. Like the hamburger patties. I wasn’t satisfied with the results. However, I had read that they are best when you use crumpled-up foil between the patties. That was one step I left out. Next time, I’ll try it that way and see if the patties taste better.
Slow cookers are all different. Some are larger than others, so you have to adapt recipes according to yours.
Mostly, my husband grills our meat. We prepare plenty for the whole week and freeze the extra. Actually, the ribeyes can be cooked in the slow cooker then put on the grill for five minutes to add that special smoke flavor to it. YUM!
Ribeye in the Slow Cooker
- 2 bone-in ribeye steaks
- Mrs. Dash "Steak" seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- Hickory Smoke barbecue sauce
- Sprinkle steaks with pepper and Mrs. Dash seasoning.
- Wrap steaks inside foil, creasing the top, and folding the ends up or twist the ends.
- Place foil-wrapped steaks into the slow cooker and cook on high for two-and-a-half hours.
- Open the foil and brush barbecue sauce on each side of the steak.
- Wrap the steaks back into the foil, and cook for another thirty minutes.
- If you're grilling other foods, put the steaks on the grill for about five minutes to get an extra smoke flavor.
Cooking ribeyes in the slow cooker is one of the easiest ways to cook a fabulous dinner. They make a great weekend dinner this way because it doesn’t take them a long time to cook.
