  • 1/2 to 1 cup beef broth
  • 4- ounces cream cheese cut into chunks and softened
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


  • Use the butter to grease the crockpot insert, leave the remaining butter in bottom of crock.
  • Toss the steak strips in and top with the broth.
  • Cover and cook on low for at least 5 hours. 6 to 8 will make them much more tender.
  • minutes before serving: Scoop the meat out of the slow cooker.
  • Add the cream cheese chunks to the broth and stir. Cover the crock for about 10 minutes and then stir vigorously.
  • Add the meat back, stir to coat. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cover and allow another 10 minutes for the meat to reheat.
  • Serve alone, over rice, or over any type of pasta.

Freezer Directions:

  • Seal the cream cheese in a separate sandwich bag.
  • Place the meat, butter and beef broth in a large, pre-labeled freezer safe bag. Place the cream cheese baggie inside the larger bag.
  • Lay flat to freeze, defrost overnight in the refrigerator before cooking. Don't forget to remove the cream cheese baggie before tossing the meat mixture into the crockpot.

Freezing Leftovers:

  • Depending on your diet preference you can make this into a casserole of sorts.
  • Layer rice or pasta cooked al dente about 3/4" deep, top with meat and sauce.
  • If you're a keto diet person, just freeze as is and opt for eating it alone or over spaghetti squash.
