Slow Cooker BBQ Pork Steak and “Baked” Potatoes

Slow Cooker BBQ Pork Steak and “Baked” Potatoes

I get a lot of use from my slow cooker, mostly during the Fall and Winter.

Even when it gets really hot and humid back here in North Iowa I use my slow cooker, it doesn’t heat up the house and saves my DH from the skeeters looking for a drink while he’s trying to grill!

Today I am trying something totally new to me…..making 2 ingredients in one slow cooker.

Of course I saw this on Pinterest, if there is anything, anyone has ever made, tried, consumed or dreamed of, it is on this site. Pretty handy if you have an ingredient and want to change it up!!

So this is basically pork steaks, simmered in a spicy BBQ sauce, then a layer of foil and scrubbed potatoes wrapped in foil are placed on top!!!


All this meal needs is a side of veggies or salad and it’s good to go!

Start off by gathering your ingredients…

Then just coat the pork steaks in seasoned (salt & pepper) flour and brown lightly on both sides in a large pan with 1 tbsp of oil.
Then place this in the slow cooker and cover with the BBQ sauce and seasonings.
Place foil over the top loosely and place the potatoes on top.
Cover and cook on low 5-6 hours.
1.5 lbs Pork steak
1 cup BBQ sauce
1 tsp Cajun seasoning
1/2 tsp Onion Powder
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 cup flour seasoned with salt and pepper
1 tbsp Canola oil
4 potatoes, scrubbed and wrapped in foil
  1. Preheat the oil in a large saute pan, coat the steaks in the flour and cook until lightly browned on both sides, about 4-5 minutes per side.
  2. Meanwhile, mix BBQ sauce with Cajun seasoning, Cumin and Garlic Powder.
  3. Place browned steaks in the bottom of the slow cooker and coat with the BBQ sauce.
  4. Place a piece of foil loosely over the steaks and place the potatoes on top.
  5. Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours.

  1. My husband was a huge fan of this recipe , he’s talked about these pork steaks for 2 days . I’m not a fan of pork steaks but had a small portion , pretty good !! I did put a piece a chicken in with it delicious .

  2. Do you have to brown them before cooking them in the crockpot? Would there be major difference in the taste of the steaks? Just wanting to eliminate some prep time so I can just throw them in the pot on my way out to work in the morning. Thanks!

    • I just throw them in the pot, I browned. They get plenty of seasoning from the sauce. Browning them is a step I just don’t do, but feel free to try it and be sure and let me know if there is a big taste difference!
