  1. Can’t wait to try this—I’m always on the lookout for affordable ways to serve steak. Question for you, though: what’s the texture of this steak? In the bottom picture, the closeup with the fork, it looks more like pot roast. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of pot roast too, but if I say we’re having steak for dinner and then serve something closer to a roast, the family might see it as a bait-and-switch tactic! 😂 Thanks!

    Reply
    • It won’t be like a pot roast, mainly because there is no real liquid to break it down in the crock pot. The skirt steak does have a softer texture though so you can use it in dishes like tacos easily.

    • Hi Liz, This recipe is not grilled at all! The spices on the skirt steak will form a nice crust as it cooks. Enjoy!

    • Hi Jane, Yes! If you use the slow cooker function, you can follow the directions as written.
