You’ll love this ribeye dinner, and so will your guests. What’s even better is you don’t have to miss the game or the commercials to turn the steak. Because there’s no grilling involved. The slow cooker does it all for you. Yep. It’s that simple.

Easy Ribeye and Baked Potato Meal

Add baked potatoes with the ribeyes, and you’ve got an even easier meal. No grilling. No baking in the oven. It’s all done in the slow cooker.

All you need for the potatoes is olive oil, foil, and the trimmings. Make it easy on yourself and get already grated cheese, sour cream, and bacon bits. If you prefer real bacon and don’t mind the extra time required, fry bacon. It’s definitely tastier that way. Oh, and don’t forget the butter. Real butter. Salted butter. Oh yeah!

Now wrap those potatoes and cook them with the steaks. See my recipe below.

Want to Add Veggies?

Add a salad to your ribeye and baked potato meal. Or, why not insert another piece of foil into the slow cooker and add Brussels Sprouts or zucchini. Easy. No hassle. Delicious. Healthy.

Include as many vegetables as you want, depending on how many you are serving. If you have a large family and an oval seven-quart slow cooker, you have plenty of room to add more vegetables and steaks.

Don’t forget the veggies either. Have fun with them. Keep them simple so there’s no extra work and you can enjoy the game. Check out these ideas:

  • Ask your guests to bring veggie appetizers.
  • Serve veggie chips from the grocery store.
  • Purchase veggie trays from the grocery store.
  • Serve a tray of pickles, olives, and artichokes
  • Buy a bag of coleslaw and add mayo, a little sugar, your favorite flavored vinegar and sweet pickle relish to it.

See how easy it is to serve veggies? Again, no fuss. Simple.

      Hi, Winslet. Yes, I do have a YouTube channel. I’ve recently started making recipe videos and hadn’t uploaded any yet. However, here is one of the videos I have uploaded… – it’s how to fry over-medium-well eggs. I will work on uploading my ribeye slow cooker recipe on the channel. Look for it tomorrow. Thanks so much!!

  2. This looks so good. Do you have a recipe for the marinade or is it bottled? I’ve never heard of a mesquite tea marinade, but it sounds delicious.

      I used a particular Sweet Tea marinade brand and combined it with a mesquite seasoning. Oh my goodness, it was definitely GOOD!!

      1. I will have to check my local stores for Sweet Tea Marinade. Is it just a local, Texas, thing or do they ship?

I'd love to hear from you! Leave comments below:
