An EASY, healthy and delicious dinner that I’m sure your family will love is Mariah’s Crockpot Flank Steak with beans.
This dish is named after my good friend Mariah because, well, she created this crockpot recipe. Years ago, Mariah and I met backstage at a runway show. Our common interests made us instantly hit it off, both in the fashion industry, yet both excited by health and cooking good foods. We thought our husbands might get along well too, so we set up a picnic day for us all to casually hang out. After our “first friendship date” went well, Mariah invited us over for dinner, she made her crockpot flank steak and it worked, we were hooked. We’ve been friends ever since!
The spices and salsa bring a bit of spice and the black beans and rice create a hearty, comforting dish. Our whole family loves Mariah’s crockpot flank steak with beans!
