Crock-Pot Mongolian Beef

This recipe was originally inspired by this Mongolian Crock-Pot Beef recipe from Once a Month Mom.  I have made it using her exact recipe and it's delicious.  I learned a few years ago how easy it can be to change recipes to better fit the tastes of my family.  For example, we do not really care for ginger ... so I took that element out.  We do, however, love garlic so I increased the amount used.  I also wanted to reduce some of the soy sauce and increase the veggies.  Here is the way I made this delicious recipe:

Gather Your Ingredients

  • 1lb beef stew meat
  • 1/4 c corn starch
  • 1/2 c soy sauce
  • 1/2 c water
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 1 c carrots, matchsticks or sliced on an angle
  • 5 green onions, sliced on an angle

Make It

  1. Place veggies and brown sugar in your crock-pot.  Pour soy sauce and water over them, stir to combine.
  2. Lightly coat the meat with corn starch and place on top of the veggie mixture.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours.  Serve on a bed of brown rice.
