It's Crockpot Season! Try this amazing Mongolian Beef!

We're coming into the colder season now so I decided to break out the crockpot this past weekend and kick my husband out of the kitchen as well.   Since we got married, Tom has been doing most of the cooking because he has mad cooking skills.   I'm talking chef level!  So, I decided to allow Tom to cook most of the meals.  It was hard for me (not) to step aside from cooking.   However, I started feeling guilty so I decided to scan Pinterest this past week and found this great recipe for Mongolian Beef!  I found the recipe off of Pinterest and then added and tweaked a few things but you really can't go wrong with a crockpot.

Ingredients:
  • 1 ½ pounds Flank Steak
  • ¼ cups cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • ½ teaspoons mince Garlic, Cloves
  • ¾ cups Soy Sauce
  • ¾ cups Water
  • ¾ cups Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup carrots - chopped or grated
  • 1 whole onion sliced
  • 2 bell peppers sliced - any color
  • 1 package of button mushrooms sliced
  • green onions, about half a bunch sliced (put half in the crockpot and half for garnishing)
Instructions:
  1. Cut flank steak into thin strips. In a ziplock bag add flank steak pieces and cornstarch. Shake to coat.
  2. Add olive oil, minced garlic, soy sauce, water, brown sugar, sliced onions, mushrooms, bell peppers and carrots to slow cooker. Stir ingredients. Add coated flank steak and stir again until coated in the sauce.
  3. Cook for high 2-3 hours or on low 4-5 hours until cooked throughout and tender. Can serve over rice and garnish with green onions.
 
 
Happy cooking!!
