Slow Cooker Greek Bowls

I am so excited to post this recipe for you today. This was a new one for us and we really loved it! I based this recipe on this one that I found on Pinterest and made a few tweaks, served it over rice, added Greek fixin's (can this be a thing? like taco fixings?) and it. was. so. good. Next time I might try putting it in a pita like a traditional gyro, but this bowl concept might have me sold. And bonus....this is a slow cooker recipe so it's easy peasy too.

Cast of Characters:

-1.5 lbs. flank steak
-1/2 cup beef broth
-salt and pepper
-1 tsp. oregano
-1 tsp. garlic powder
-1/2 tsp. onion powder
-Juice of half a lemon
-1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

Tzatziki Sauce-
-1 container plain Greek yogurt (I like Fage 2%)
-1 tsp. minced garlic
-3 tbs. finely diced cucumbers
-1 tsp. white wine vinegar
-1 tbs. lemon juice (I used the other half from the beef)
-1 tsp. olive oil

-diced tomatoes
-feta cheese
-red onion
-squeeze of lemon juice
-Chickpeas (we didn't add these, but afterwards, I was like OMG, you could add hummus or chickpeas too! Yes, please)
-Roasted red pepper

Cut the steak into strips and place in slow cooker with all beef ingredients for 6-8 hours on low.

When you're ready to eat, heat up some rice (Uncle Ben's microwave for us) or quinoa, add meat, Tzatziki, and toppings. Enjoy!
Savor Your Sparkle,
