Those that know me well know that I am a huge fan of slow cooked meals. I really do love my slow cooker and it comes in handy on days when I’m really busy, or simply not in the mood to stand over a stove.
As a wife and mom, I love preparing delicious meals that I know my family will love, but I don’t always enjoy the time it takes to prepare some of those meals.
With this Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef, It takes just a few minutes to assemble the ingredients together, and add them to the crock pot. I can then put my feet up, and let the slow cooker do all the work for me.
And not only is this meal super easy to prepare, but it is soooooo good! The beef is covered in a delicious, tangy, flavorful sauce that is not too spicy, but just right. This crock pot recipe actually tastes just like a meal you would get from an Asian restaurant!
This crockpot Mongolian Beef pairs well with steamed rice. I usually serve it with rice or lo mein noodles. You could pair it with your favorite vegetables as well.
