Mongolian Beef A La Crock Pot

Standard

IMG_9629

Cooking the meat in the crock pot really makes it tender. And the flavors all meld together nicely. Just watch the cooking time on this as it was starting to burn even though it had only been cooking on low for about 4 hours. This is definitely not one of those crock pot meals that you can put on before work and let go for 8 hours (unless you have a timer!).

Ingredients:

1 lb. flank steak, cut into bite size strips

1/4 c. corn starch

2 T. olive oil

1/2 c. water

1/2 c. soy sauce

1/2 c. brown sugar

1 T. minced garlic

1 T. minced ginger

1 t. chili flakes

1 c. shredded carrots

1 head broccoli, cut up into florets

Directions:

Combine the steak with the corn starch in a zip lock bag and make sure the cornstarch covers the meat well.

In the crock pot add the sauce ingredients minus the vegetables and the meat.

Stir it well to combine all the ingredients.

Add the meat and stir to coat with the sauce.

Cook on low for about 4 hours.

Add the carrots and broccoli and cook for another 1/2 hour.

Serve over cooked rice.
