Why put a perfectly good steak in a pot? Because it’s a delicious meal, that’s why.

It’s also a great idea for a busy day now that school activities are off and running. When meat sales show up at area supermarkets, stock up on a few of your favorites, date them, and use them on those busiest of days.

While the family dinner table has had its adjustments over the years, one thing that hasn’t changed is how everyone gravitates to the kitchen when there’s food cooking. The love of a good meal brings people together, no matter what their ages.

What has changed is how and when they eat. The ideal may be for everyone to gather today, but with school and sporting activities, in addition to job schedules, that isn’t always possible. The slow cooker is one way to have a good meal, even if it means eating in shifts. Either way, here’s a good meal for a hectic day. A good steak will also be tasty in the slow cooker.
