Sunday, May 21, Chef Geoff Blount shared a great cooking tip to help you prefer for Memorial Day Weekend.

Chef Geoff said when you are going to cook steaks or other meat in a crock pot sear it first.

After you purchase your meat and season it, put oil in a frying pan on the stove and then sear the meat on all four sides. Then you can place that meat in a crock pot.

Chef Geoff said doing this really seals in the flavor of the meat and keeps moisture in the meat.

Watch the video above to learn more about the special rub used on the meats and to see the difference searing the meat before throwing it the crock pot makes.

Chef Geoff said using a crock pot helps when you have to make a lot of meat and don't have time.

However, if you like your meat cooked pretty rare he said to just cook it on a grill or stove.
