Crock Pot Mongolian Beef or Chicken
1.5 pounds beef, cubed. I used sirloin, but you can use stew meat, round steak or whatever you have or is on sale.
1 Tablespoon oil
1/2 teaspoon ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 to 3 Tablespoons corn starch
1 onion chopped
1 Tablespoon Sriracha sauce, optional
Into your crock pot add the oil, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, water, brown sugar, chopped onion and sriracha sauce, stir to combine. Coat your meat cubes in the cornstarch and add to the pot. Cook on HI 2 to 3 hours or on LOW 4 to 5 hours till done. Serve over rice. Garnish with green onion, peanuts or whatever you like. This recipe was super simple and was good. I thought it tasted pretty close to what I've had at an Oriental Restaurant.
You could also use chicken, but the cook time may be shorter.
