My slow cooker beef hanger steak recipe is one of my original recipes and it took several tries to perfect it so I’m going to gloat over it while patting myself on the back. I created it specifically for a recipe contest that I hope to win. Got skills in the kitchen? You too can enter for a chance to win a KitchenAid multi-cooker and more. I <3 KitchenAid products as I’m sure you already know if you’ve read some of my KitchenAid product suggestions. I don’t have their multi-cooker but I need it. I do. I can think of tons of recipes I can use in it. I’ve been dreaming of it ever since I found out about this contest. I’ve even made room on my counter (just in case, lol, and yes I did). There are going to be 5 lucky winners PLUS each winner will receive a year’s supply of my new favorite butter brand; Minerva Dairy Amish Roll Butter.
My recipe calls for beef hanger steak but you can use a substitute as I had to for my recipe trials. I wasn’t going to mess up my beef hanger steak if the recipe didn’t taste as good as I hoped it would. Unfortunately for me, it’s not easy to find beef hanger steak in my area which is why I saved it for my final recipe. I have to order it online (ButcherBox) and thank goodness they ship fast. Hanger steak is a prized cut and is very popular with chefs because of its flavor. Bribe your local butcher to sell you some if nothing else because he or she probably won’t give up this cut of meat without getting their favorite cake or pie in exchange. Just saying. It’s usually a butcher’s favorite cut of meat so it’s going to take some negotiating (there’s only one hanger steak per cow). For my recipe, you’ll need 4- 5 oz hanger steaks.
I use butter in so many of my recipes but I can promise you that from the very first taste of Minerva Dairy Amish Roll Butter, my life changed. My recipes changed. Life in my kitchen became utterly delicious. It’s because of this butter that I heard about this contest (read about it is more accurate). I made sure I had everything I needed for my recipe in time to enter including Minerva Dairy Garlic Herb Amish Roll Butter. When you’ve got hanger steak and Minerva Dairy Amish Roll Butter, you’ve got the makings for a meal fit for the queen or king. I kid you not.
Get ready for a culinary experience that your taste buds will never forget. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on my recipe and it’s okay, I can take criticism if you don’t like it. I love good fun competition and want to encourage you to create or share your own slow cooker recipe so you can enter the Slowest Recipe Contest on the Minerva Dairy website as well. The contest ends at the end of this month so you have time to play around with a recipe as I did. You’ll want it to be perfect right down to each and every ingredient.
4 Hanger Steaks (5 oz each)
Minerva Dairy Garlic Herb Amish Roll Butter, 1 Tablespoon
1/4 teaspoon red pepper
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 cup cooking sherry
Sear both sides of the hanger steak in a frying pan with 2 Tablespoons olive oil. Turn crockpot on high and add 1 Tablespoon Minerva Dairy Garlic Herb Amish Roll Butter to the crockpot. While it’s melting, keep turning your prized beef hanger steak in the frying pan. Move steak to the crockpot when the butter has melted.
Add the following ingredients to the drippings in the frying pan; 1/4 teaspoon red pepper, 2 Tablespoons brown sugar, 1/4 cup cooking sherry, and fresh cilantro. Don’t add salt at this time, the butter is flavored wonderfully and you probably won’t need any. I left it off as well as black pepper.
Heat for 5 minutes on medium heat, then pour over beef hanger steak in the crockpot. Cook on high for 2 hours.
Top off steaks with butter and fresh cilantro mixture.
Serve with bow tie pasta and roasted vegetables (I added my veggies to the frying pan I seared the steak in because we’re not trying to mess up all the dishes with this meal).
Eat, drink and be merry for tonight you’ll fall in love with your slow cooker all over again.
Click here (UPDATE, ENDED) to enter for a chance to win a KitchenAid multi-cooker and a year supply of Minerva Dairy Amish Roll Butter. Good luck with the recipe contest. I’m hoping that if I don’t win that at least one or more of my readers/followers will win it.
