Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef is a favorite, so excited to share this recipe with all of you!
- Slice steak into thin strips and toss in a Ziploc bag with cornstarch to coat.
- Add all of the liquid and dried spices to your slow cooker, and the peanut butter (or alternative if necessary), and mix well.
- Add the garlic, carrots and three of the sliced green onions. If you are using fresh onion, add that at this time, too.
- Place the steak on top, and toss gingerly to coat.
- Cover. Cook on low for 4–6 hours.
NOTE: Flank steak is thin and has very little fat, and will cook quickly. There isn’t a lot of liquid in this dish, so if your crock tends to cook hot, please check it after 3 hours! The meat is done when it is no longer pink and has reaches desired tenderness.
Serve over steamed or fried rice, and garnish with freshly sliced green onion.
