Crock Pot Oven Steak

"Easy do ahead recipe. I like to add some carrots and other veggies. Add some sour cream too if you like. If you do not want a lot of lemon flavor cut back on the amoumt of lemon you use. I use the whole lemon but as you can see by one review it is too much for some taste buds"

  1. WOW Bergy, this is the best crockpot dinner we've had in ages!!! So easy and so much taste!! The only change I made was to add some baby carrots. It's amazing what a wonderful taste the lemons add to this, they really compliment the rest of the ingredients, and very strange, they must disintigrate completely because there was no sign of them in the end result.(except for taste!) The dry mustard also adds greatly to the steak. It was cooked perfectly at 3 hours and not overcooked as are so may crockpot reciepes. The steak was fork tender and still in one piece, the potatoes were tender and the carrots, just barely had a crunch left. A perfectly wonderfull dinner!!! Thanks for posting this one, it will go in my hard copy!!
  2. The only thing I did not have on hand was the lemon. But it still came out very tasty and the gravy was great over the potatoes. So Bergy, just how much lemon rind do you use? 1 strip, 1/4 of a lemon or the whole peel of a lemon ? Just wondering because I want to make this again. Another winner, thanks.
  3. This was a delicious crock-pot meal. The lemon really adds an interesting flavor to the beef and vegetables. I also cooked for 3 hours and that was perfect--not overdone. The sauce was delicious and I found myself slurping it up with a spoon. My family liked it too and since that is the main reason I cook--I was very pleased. Thanks for posting.
  4. The meat turned out really good. I added half a sliced lemon and have to agree that it had a bit too much acidity in the sauce. I think if I did the recipe again I might just squeeze the juice from half a lemon in. I think the rind is what kind of pushes the tang over the top.
  5. EDITED REVIEW: Just comments so I don't ruin the nice rating with my undeveloped tastebuds! Although I had reservations, I did added a whole lemon, rind on...thinly sliced as the recipe called for. I also followed the rest of the recipe perfectly...and in the end, the lemon was overpowering to us. This recipe tastes very stongly of zest. I know a lot of people like that. Tastes are subjective, of course and our tastes do not agree with the strong taste of lemon peel. Thank you for posting this recipe! I enjoyed seeing how far I could take our tastebuds!


On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
