EASY SLOW COOKER MONGOLIAN BEEF RECIPE

The easiest way you can make a Mongolian beef recipe! The beef gets meltingly tender in the slow cooker and the sauce becomes incredibly silky, with great spicy/sweet flavors!


All of the amazing spicy/sweet flavors of Mongolian beef, but in an incredibly easy slow cooker meal with just 10 minutes of prep.  This is the Mongolian beef recipe for the busiest of people!

The main thing I love so much about this Mongolian beef recipe is that unlike some slow cooker meals, it’s made entirely in the slow cooker, with no extra steps to take.  No browning the meat, no broiling… just adding all the ingredients, turning on the slow cooker and walking away.  Simply amazing.


And this meal is certainly not short on flavor!  The garlic and ginger bring plenty of classic Mongolian beef flavor, and combined with sweet/heat combination of brown sugar and Sriracha sauce… it’s a powerhouse of amazing flavors!

TIPS AND TRICKS FOR MAKING THIS SLOW COOKER MONGOLIAN BEEF RECIPE:

  • Slice your flank steak against the grain.  As you’re looking at the beef, you’ll see lines, like the grain on a piece of wood.  You want to slice it across those lines, not alongside them.  Doing this ensures an incredibly tender piece of beef.
  • The carrots are optional, but add a great texture!
  • Add the Sriracha to your tastes.  I like this recipe to have a little heat to balance out the sweetness.
  • To make this a complete meal, add some steamed broccoli and rice!

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 1/2 lbs thinly sliced flank steak (1/4 inch thick)
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, minced
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 - 2 tsp Sriracha sauce (can substitute with red pepper flakes or cayenne instead - in whatever amount you prefer)
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 4-6 green onions, thinly sliced
  • sesame seeds, for garnish
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Add sliced flank steak and cornstarch to a large resealable plastic bag.  Close and shake to coat well.  This can be done in a large mixing bowl as well, but I find it's less messy to do in a bag.
  2. To the bottom of slow cooker, add vegetable oil, garlic, ginger, water, soy sauce, brown sugar and Sriracha sauce.  Stir to combine.
  3. Add in coated flank steak and carrots and stir again until everything is coated in the sauce.
  4. Cover and cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours or on LOW for about 4 hours, until steak is cooked and tender.
  5. Serve over white rice and garnished with green onions and sesame seeds if desired.
