Southwestern Steak and Cornbread Dressing in the Slow Cooker


I love a good slow cooker recipe, especially one that has just 4 ingredients.

This has the flavors of Southwest Beef Rolls, but it’s much easier.  A box of cornbread stuffing mix and can of tomatoes with green chilis make the recipe more like assembling and less like cooking.  I’m all about easy, so that works for me!

  2. Stir the stuffing mix, tomatoes and melted butter together.

  1. Sounds great. Oh how I love my crockpot…

  2. Oh… this looks wonderful! And so easy too.

    I would like to invite you to participate in Slow Cooking Saturdays Recipe Swap @ Crock Pot Recipe Exchange. Here is is where I already have a few weeks of scheduled themes

    Keep up the great work!

    Remember, Crock Pots Rock! 😉

  3. What a great looking crock pot recipe! 🙂

  4. Oh wow this looks GOOODD!!!!! I also adore my crockpot – it makes life so much easier when the kids have after school activities that run too close to dinner time.

  5. Oh yummy! I, too, have a love affair with my slow cooker 🙂

  6. Great crockpot recipe because it is soooo simple! What an easy way to make dinner.

  7. Okay, I’m making this tonight and my meat isn’t completely thawed! Do you think it was cook thru in 7 hours? I wonder if I should do the first hour on high and then the other 6 on low? What do you think?

  8. Could I substitute the cornbread stuffing for regular stuffing? I discovered a box of stuffing in my cabinet and didn’t know if I could use that or not. Thanks!

  9. Thanks! Can’t wait to try this, it’s on the menu for November.

  10. Just wanted to let you know that we have this at least once or twice a month now. My two year old loves it! While I enjoy it as written, we often modify it to have an Italian flavor and really love it as well…just substitute 1 can Italian seasoned diced tomatoes, and use regular stuffing instead of cornbread stuffing.

  11. I can’t wait to make this – my husband loves steak, but it isn’t always in the family budget to buy 4 steaks for the grill. Using this cut in the slow cooker will make enough for everyone! Plus – you had me at the Rotel… it adds so much to any recipe! 🙂

  12. Thanks for sharing this recipe! Delicious and easy, it was great to come home to after a long day at work. All I had to do was microwave steam some green beans and dinner was on the table in no time flat 🙂

  13. What size should the cornbread box should be? There are different sizes at the store. I am assuming 6 ounces. Correct?

    Oh no, I read the directions wrong and I put it on high instead of low in the slow cooker. Oops.

  15. Twinklestarr says:

    Looking forward to trying this recipe, but did have a couple of questions:
    Does the meat need any seasoning? Salt, garlic, etc?
    Does it enhance the flavor to brown the meat, first?

  16. I loved this recipe! I reviewed it and linked back to your site on my blog today. Thanks for posting!

  17. Stumbled upon your website and you have just made my meal plan for the weekend and next and now I’ve got a list of recipes I’ve printed & pinned for planning the next couple of weeks. So first, THANK YOU!

    Second for this recipe (because I will be making it very soon!), can Flank or Skirt Steak be used? It’s frequently on sale and as its a slow and low recipe, it should be tender. I’d like to pick up some beef on sale where/when I can and then prep it for the freezer to grab, toss in the crockpot and viola, dinner’s done.

    Again, thank you so much!! LOVE your site and sharing with fellow crockpot foodie friends. 😉
