Crockpot Mongolian Beef

Crockpot Mongolian Beef

What’s the big deal with crockpots anyway? Everywhere you look you see another crockpot recipe. If you ask me, there aren’t enough crockpot recipes. I resisted buying one for a long time, but now I can tell you what the big deal is about crockpots. It literally takes you 5 minutes to get all the ingredients together, dump them in the crockpot, turn it on and forget about if for a few hours during which you can do whatever you wish. Spend more time with your family, work on what matters, go visit a friend.

I’m all about easy recipes. I love to cook and bake, very true, but I don’t want to be in the kitchen all day long. There are so many other things to do.

Enough about that, you probably want to learn how to make this delicious Mongolian beef. Normally if you make any beef stew it will take you forever to cook the beef until it’s tender and not rubbery. Making this beef in the crockpot is the easiest way to get melt in your mouth beef. You can’t see this in the picture but trust me, the beef comes apart in your mouth and makes you go mmmm.

The ingredients are simple, ingredients you probably have in your pantry right now. So if you love beef, I urge you to try this Mongolian beef, tender meat, amazing flavors and perfect for sharing with your loved ones.

    Oh my goodness, this was absolutely delicious. Borrowed my daughters Christmas gift (crock pot) and made this for the family. The meat was so tender and yummy. Going out and getting a crock pot too!!!

    Is the medium onion in the recipe a green onion or a white one? The picture looks like it’s a green onion, but recipe doesn’t specify. Looks yummy. Can’t wait to try it!

    Hubs loves Mongolian Beef! So everything is chopped and ready to turn on before I leave for work tomorrow. I left out the meat and will add it last. Wish me luck!

    This looks AMAZING! I cannot wait to try it. Just wondering if I can substitute another liquid for the cooking sherry? Maybe beef broth?
    Thank you for any help.
    Will let you know how it turns out :-)

      Hi Regina,
      You probably can, not really sure if it will affect the taste much, but give it a try. Can’t be bad regardless, it’s beef in a crockpot! :)

    Had just bought flank steak and then got your newsletter – what choice did I have but to try this! Easy to make (although I am a cheater and use the frozen ginger & garlic in cubes) and tastes super good. What’s on the crockpot menu for next week? :) Ruth N.

      That’s a great idea, here you can find minced ginger and garlic in little jars, so sometimes I’ll use those, much easier than mincing your own garlic and ginger. Not sure what’s on the crockpot menu next :) I still have to figure that one out. :)

      Hi Sue,
      I have a 6 quart crockpot, and I bought the cheapest one I could find which was about $15 or $16. That’s all you really need, a cheap crockpot. I’ve been using mine pretty much every single week and works wonderful.
