{Pinned there, Done that} Crockpot Flank Steak

I am on a roll with my new crockpot recipes. Like I said the other day, with sports starting up again my crockpot is going to be getting a serious workout. Crockpot recipe #2 was this Crockpot Flank Steak from Lifetime Moms (of course another pin). I decided to serve this over rice with a side of beans and some tortillas. The girls actually LOVED making their one burrito wraps and devoured this meal! The hubs added tons of hot sauce, but that's how he rolls.

This was another great "set it and forget it" recipe!
PS - I totally forgot to brown the flank steak before throwing it in the crockpot and it still turned out fine. Next I probably will brown it though.
