Savory Cajun Steak Bites and Potatoes Delight


  • 2 packs of stew meat (approximately 2 pounds)
  • 2 large potatoes, diced (or use mini potatoes)
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • Cajun seasoning (such as Tony’s), to taste
  • Onion powder, to taste
  • Garlic powder, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste


  1. Prepare the Slow Cooker:
    • Grease the slow cooker insert or use a slow cooker liner for easy cleanup.
  2. Season the Stew Meat:
    • In a large bowl, combine the stew meat with Cajun seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, and black pepper. Toss until the meat is well-coated with the seasonings.
  3. Sear the Stew Meat (Optional):
    • For added flavor, you can sear the stew meat in a hot skillet with a bit of oil until browned on all sides. This step is optional but enhances the depth of flavor.
  4. Layer the Potatoes:
    • Place the diced potatoes at the bottom of the slow cooker, creating an even layer.
  5. Add Seasoned Stew Meat:
    • Arrange the seasoned stew meat on top of the potatoes, creating an even layer.
  6. Dot with Butter:
    • Cut the butter into small cubes and distribute them over the top of the meat and potatoes. This adds richness and flavor.
  7. Season Again:
    • Sprinkle additional Cajun seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, and black pepper over the meat and potatoes for an extra burst of flavor.
  8. Slow Cook to Perfection:
    • Cook on high for 5-6 hours or until the meat is tender and the potatoes are cooked through. The slow cooking allows the flavors to meld and intensify.
  9. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Once done, stir the contents gently to combine the flavors. Spoon the Cajun steak bites and potatoes onto serving plates, ensuring a mix of meat and potatoes in each serving.
  10. Garnish (Optional):
