Supporting our military is important to our company and our 5th generation owners, Todd and Bruce Simon. In the past we have supported the Navy SEALS Family Foundation, Wounded Warriors Family Support, and shipped meals overseas to military members during the holidays.

 

Today, we are honored to support our U.S. Coast Guard during this difficult time. As the only branch of the military affected by the government shutdown we wanted to support the U.S. Coast Guard as we’ve supported other branches of the Armed Forces.

 

Omaha Steaks recently donated 8,000 Skirt Steak & Vegetable slow cooker meals to 18 U.S. Coast Guard bases across the country impacted by the government shutdown.  With this donation, we wanted to make sure all U.S.Coast Guard members could enjoy their meal, even if they don’t own a slow cooker. We’ve included easy oven instructions to enjoy the skirt steak and vegetables slow cooker meal.

 

To our U.S. Coast Guard – Thank you for your dedication to our country with your service. We salute you.

 

Slow cooker skirt steak and vegetables is a delicious meal that simmers in your slow cooker all day, but you can also make it in the oven with our simple instructions.
