Mongolian Beef from the Slow Cooker Recipe
Whether you freeze this mixture of beef and carrots in a sweet-and-savory Asian-style sauce or put it straight into the slow cooker, it's easy and delicious!
This Chinese restaurant favorite is made with tender chunks of flank steak, onion, garlic, soy sauce, and hoisin sauce.
Excellent. I eliminated the bowls altogether. Reduce soy sauce and brown sugar to 1/2 cup, increase water to 1 1/2 cups Put corn starch and steak strips into a sealable baggie and shake to coat. Add all other ingredients (except carrots) to crock pot and mix. Stir in coated steak until all pieces are covered. Cook on high for 2 hours. After 2 hours add carrots and continue cooking for 1 more hour .
This is one of the best slow cooker recipes I have made in a long time. Both in terms of ease and quality. Reduced the brown sugar to 1/2 cup per many suggestions, and I think this was fine, although I suspect it would have been just fine as originally directed. I also substituted a flat iron steak for the flank steak because the flanks were all two pounds or more. I've grilled flatirons quite a bit and knew they would be similar, plus they were cheaper. I cut the steak into strips before the cornstarch step. This gave more surface area to be coated with the cornstarch, although I am not sure why it is even necessary to coat the meat as the marinade surely washed it off. It probably could just be whisked into the soy mixture at the beginning. But I followed instructions except used a gallon zip lock back to shake the beef for coating. I marinated in the same bag I used to shake it up with the cornstarch. The whole concoction fit easily in my 2.5Q slow cooker. (I wish all slow cooker recipes w
Thin-sliced beef flank steak gets a quick fry in hot oil, then is simmered in a sweet soy-based sauce with fresh green onions for a dish that's like eating out at home.
Probably one of my favorite mongolian beef for the slow cooker. For the next time though, I would either use low sodium soy sauce or lessen it; Control the sweetness for you liking. I did not use the carrots because I was using the carrots to our side dish. Of course, you may add onions and red bell peppers for the last hour or so....
