I am in love with slow cooked meat because it’s always incredibly tender. This Mongolian Beef recipe is no different. It’s almost like an Asian flavored beef stew. Trader Joe’s organic jasmine rice is the perfect accompaniment along with steamed snap peas or broccoli. I cut back on the sugar from the original recipe since a lot of reviewers commented that it was too sweet. I personally love sweet and savory pairings so this was not an issue for me. The best part of slow cooker recipes is that you basically throw the ingredients in a pot, go about your day, and come home to a delicious home cooked meal. As much as I love Chinese take-out, it’s tough to justify spending so much money when it’s so easy to make yourself. This is a definite crowd pleaser and would make a great Friday movie night meal. (Just make sure you keep an eye on the veggies. I overcooked the snap peas!)
