I think Fall is my favorite season. I was talking with a friend the other day how she was mourning the loss of summer and I told her I was ready to “hunker down.” Turn on the furnace, wear sweaters and turn on the fire place. She didn’t agree with me but we are still friends. Although I have learned to embrace using my slow cooker in the summer, I really love using it in the Fall and winter.
There is nothing than coming home from a day out and about and walking in and smelling the yumminess that has been cooking in my slow cooker all day. It is even better that dinner is ready!!
I have another version of Mongolian Beef on the blog which is also delicious. It is done on the stove top and the meat is lightly fried. It’s a total winner but a little more work than this slow cooker version.
I used sirloin steak for this recipe and coated the sliced beef in cornstarch and lightly browned it before putting it in the slow cooker. If you are in a real hurry you can skip the cornstarch and browning part.
Let it cook for 4 hours on low, cook up a batch of rice and dinner is ready!
Add a little sliced green onion and toasted sesame seeds for garnish and grab a fork!
