Crockpot T-Bone Bistek

Before anyone faints because they think I’ve ruined T-Bone steaks by cooking in a crockpot please read on. Not that I need to explain anything to the world wide web of course but cancel culture is everywhere for every little thing so I better add a very important context. Alrighty!

So, the Hubby and I have done dental work and right now it’s hard to chew. Or rather, we’re trying to heal our jaws and eating perfectly grilled steak is really not a good idea at the moment. We were craving steak something terrible last week though.

We have these really nice T-Bone steaks that we got as part of our monthly meat bundle that were just waiting to be cooked. So what do we do? I decided to cook the steaks in the crockpot to make them soft for our jaws and chompers. Couldn’t we have just bought a different cut of beef to cook in the crockpot instead? Yes of course but we didn’t want to spend any more money when we already have beef and there’s a way we could satisfy our cravings by cooking it differently. So there’s the explanation you didn’t ask for! 😅

Plus, I knew the bistek marinade would just be soooo flavorful with the slow-cooked steaks. Usually when making bistek I use thinly cut beef cutlets but I’ve figured I’d try it with the T-Bone cut while it cooked slow and long in the crockpot. Was it everything I’ve imagined? HELL YEAH!

The tender beef with the sauce over rice?? OMG! Seriously, you should try it. Perhaps with roast cut of beef?

Crockpot T-Bone Bistek


  • 3 pcs T-Bone steaks
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • generous sprinkling of black pepper

  • sprinkle of red pepper flakes optional


  • In a jar, combine water, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, black pepper, red pepper flakes, and smashed garlic cloves.
  • Pour some of the marinade in the bottom of the crockpot. Place the T-Bone steaks into the pot. Pour the remaining marinade into the pot.
  • Cover the crockpot. Set to low heat and leave it to cook for 6-7 hours. Obviously, start cooking around 10am.
  • At the last hour add slices of red onions. Cover and continue to cook until ready to serve.

Transfer in a platter to serve.

So delish! T-Bone Bistek cooked in crockpot satisfied our red meat cravings and we didn’t hurt our jaws, HAH!
