Crockpot Layered Dinner

Crock Pot Layered Dinner – Steak, Potatoes, Corn on the Cob

You can use whatever meat or vegetables you have in the house but the trick is to not use too much liquid when cooking the meat, so that the potatoes and the corn (or whatever ingredients you are using) isn’t floating in juice.

Ingredients

  • steak, pork chops, or chicken
  • 1 tbsp of your favorite seasoning rub (I used Smokey Mesquite seasoning -  it’s a Grill Creations seasoning by Durkee)
  • 1 tbsp dried onion flakes
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 2-4 potatoes
  • 2-4 ears of fresh corn
  • aluminum foil

Directions

- Put meat in the bottom of the crockpot. Rub with seasoning and onion, and flip over to get the other side. Add apple juice and Worcestershire sauce.

- Wash potatoes and cover with foil. Add to the pot.

- Shuck the corn, and wrap each ear in foil. Add to the crockpot.

- Cover and cook on high for 5-7 hours, or on low for about 8.

Alesha’s thoughts:

I used (4) 1/2 inch boneless pork chops, 3 white potatoes, and 3 ears of yellow corn.  I love the idea of cooking a complete meal in the crock pot, and it isn’t stew, casserole, or soup!  This went over very well.  My husband said the pork chops had a nice flavor.  Our dinner was ready in 4 hours cooking on High.  I’m not sure if my crock pot is hotter or just wasn’t as full as Stephanie’s (her recipe says 5-7 hours on high).  This was definitely a success!  I would love to hear your ideas on what other veggies could be foil-wrapped and cooked on top of the meat.  We love corn on the cob and potatoes, but it is a lot of starch!

    I can’t live without my crock pot and it has been a life saver many times in this house. I never though of putting foiled wrapped potatoed in it and thank-you for posting this recipe. It will be on menu next week :)

    What a clever–and unique–crockpot “recipe!” You’re right–most crockpot dishes are soups/stews. This does not look like a meal made in a crockpot, adn it looks delicious!

    Other veggies that could be done this way–butternut squash, sweet potatoes, green beans?

    What a cool way to use your crock pot. I’m definitely going to try this recipe.

    This sounds yummy! I do have reservations about slow-cooking foil with food in an acid environment, though. Maybe I’ll try one unwrapped and another in parchment. Awesome idea, though! You do get tired of soup and stew. As for adding different veggies, you could leave out one starch and put broccoli on the top. Mmmmm….

    Hm interesting…never thought of cooking everything all together like that

    This does sound great, I’m with everyone else in liking the idea of a meal that’s not a soup or stew.
    I bet you could do a broccoli or califlauer (?sp) head wrapped in foil and it would come our really good.
    Thanks for the great ideas. :-)
