Slow Cooker London Broil

             Man I need to use my slow cooker more! I don’t know why I am so stuck on not using it since every time I drag it out of the coat closet, (yes, small spaces require odd storage arrangements!) I am so deliciously pleased. The  short rib recipe I made a while ago is still one of my favs and a few weeks back I made an awesome rendition of  steak ropa vieja and now with this London Broil recipe, I think it’s time to keep the SC in a more accessible location! HHHmmmmm, no way is it taking the spot of my beloved Kitchen Aid, but perhaps that toaster could move elsewhere. J

                So with that being said, I think it is clear to see why I am bringing this recipe to you today. I thought the meat was beyond great! It became somewhat of like a brisket and fell apart in shreds when pulled apart. The gravy was everything I was hoping for, however Matt wasn’t too keen. Disclaimer: he is not a gravy-kinda-guy. In fact, he cringes over anything with a thick and creamy consistency: ketchup, mayo, aioli, etc. I’ve tried to convert him but he has remained anti-condiment man!  Anyway though, if you like gravy, you’ll love this. I would have preferred to serve this over egg noodles or fettuccine but I only had potatoes in the house. Nothing too bad about some spuds with gravy, right?!?

                And besides it being oh-so comfort like in taste, it came together in, no joke, 5-10 minutes! I have an issue with SC recipes that have you cook first and then place in the device. To me, that defeats the purpose of the slow cooker being a time-saver’s best friend.  So this recipe is exactly what I am looking for when it comes to utilizing Mr. Slow Cooker. So if you’re like me, I know you’ll keep this one handyJ Enjoy…
