Crock Pot Rib-eyes

Posted on

My husband has a strict rule that once the grill cover goes on for the winter it doesn’t come off until spring. For someone who ADORES steak that’s a pretty tough rule to follow. When craving steak in the winter I can get pretty creative about how to go about getting it. I’ll make a rib-eye on the stove top but I really don’t like to. I prefer filets if I’m going to cook steak on the stove. Deep in need of a rib-eye in the middle of winter I devised a plan. Why couldn’t I just cook a steak in the crock pot. “Heresy!” you say and if I hadn’t been desperate I would agree with you. However, believe it or not, it really does work.

Just a few little notes: You could do this with any marinade, the following it just what I happened to use at the time. Next time I think I’ll try the balsamic glaze I used on the filet mignons a few posts back. Watch your steaks. It is easy to cook them too long. I like my steaks so rare they moo but you won’t get that with this cooking method. However, your steaks will be fall-apart-tender.

Rib-eyes in the crockpot


  • 2 ribeyes
  • ¼ cup red wine
  • 1 tablespoon steak sauce (A-1)
  • 1 tablespoon dijn mustard

Line crock pot with Ziplock disposable liner. Combine wine, steak sauce and mustard to create a marinade. Place steaks in crock pot and paint with marinade. Cook in crock pot on low for 3 to 4 hours, checking often.

I stress-bake, a lot. When I'm not doing that I'm an Episcopal priest, wife, and mom. Have a recipe that just might lower my blood pressure or at least make my house smell good? I'd love to try it!

  1. We love this recipe! Didn’t have wine so used balsamic vinegar, steak sauce and worsteshire sauce instead of Dijon mustard! Then Tried it with Dijon but am sticking with the 1st version I tried. The vinegar,steak sauce and worsteshire gives a fantastic flavour! I put the steaks on a bed of sliced onion and minced garlic and sprinkled Monterey steak seasoning liberally on the meat. We are in the process of doing a ribeye roast for Easter dinner cooked the same way. Everyone who’s tried this loves it. Thanks!
