And while I seriously can’t get enough of my favorite kitchen appliance, sometimes I like to break out my slow cooker instead.

It’s perfect for busy days when I know I won’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.

I’ve already shared dishes like crockpot ham and cabbage soup, tri-tip in the crockpot, Mississippi chicken, stuffing and chicken in the crock pot, and of course my crockpot mac and cheese recipe.

How to Make Slow Cooker London Broil

STEP ONE: Heat a bit of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the beef with salt and pepper and sear for 1-2 minutes on each side. This step is optional, but searing the meat will help bring out its natural flavors!

STEP TWO: Pour the broth, water, and onion soup mix into a 6-quart crockpot and stir. Add the bay leaf, baby potatoes, and carrots, and season with a bit of salt and pepper.

STEP THREE: Add the beef on top of the vegetables and cover. Cook on Low for 8-10 hours, or on High for 4-5 hours. 

STEP FOUR: Transfer the beef to a cutting board to rest before serving. Place the vegetables on a serving tray — leave the broth inside the crockpot for now.

STEP FIVE: Whisk the cornstarch and water together until well-combined, then add the slurry to the broth and stir gently to mix. Set your crockpot to High and cook the gravy for 15-20 minutes to thicken it.

STEP SIX: Carve the beef and serve with your homemade gravy, vegetables, and noodles or rice if desired. Enjoy!

Should London Broil Be Cooked Fast or Slow?

I’m all about low and slow cooking! You’ll get tender and juicy results every time if you make London Broil in the slow cooker.

If you cook it at a too-high temperature, you’ll end up with dry, hard, and chewy meat. It’s just one of the reasons why I love this London broil crock pot recipe!

Do You Need to Put Liquid in a Slow Cooker With Beef?

You do need to add a bit of liquid to the mix for your crockpot London broil with vegetables, but don’t feel like you need to completely cover it.

I typically add 1 cup of beef broth and 1 cup of water to mine. Both the beef and vegetables will release liquid and moisture as it cooks.

If you add more, you’ll end up with beef stew! Which, of course, is delicious but a totally different dish.

What’s the Best Way to Tenderize a London Broil?

If you follow my slow cooker London broil with potatoes and carrots recipe, you won’t have to worry about tenderizing the beef before you get started.

That’s the beauty of this low and slow cooking method! If you do roast yours in the oven, you can tenderize it by allowing the beef to marinate before popping it in the oven.

What Happens If You Don’t Brown Meat Before Slow Cooking?

You’ll note that I mention browning or searing the meat before placing it in the crockpot is optional.

However, I will say that I almost always do! Browning the meat will bring out its natural flavors, and it also helps to ensure it cooks evenly.

It will also ensure that the beef doesn’t get too greasy as your slow cooker London broil cooks.

  1. This is the epitome of pure comfort food. I used the Ninja Foodi Smartlid slow cook function. That allowed me to sear the meat first. I followed your instructions almost to a T. I cook everything with wine and added 1/4 cup of port to the liquids. The meat we cut with a fork and everyone said they couldn’t believe this was cooked in a crock pot and not hours in an oven. Although it does take hours to slow cook, I’m not heating the kitchen and crock pots use less energy than ovens. Your recipes, Samantha, are always the best. I’ve never had a fail and I’m sure I won’t cooking your future recipes.

    • Hi Linda, Yes, you can put fresh or frozen green beans in place of the carrots. Green beans won’t take as long to cook though, so they can be added in about half way through the cook time. If you’d like to use canned green beans, they can be added in the last hour of cooking. Enjoy!
