Slow cooker Mongolian Beef is one of the easiest and tastiest dump-it and run recipes we’ve encountered. You can use cheaper, tougher cuts of beef as they will become meltingly tender in a silkily textured sauce bursting with flavor.
This recipe is fantastic served with stir-fried rice and veggies or served over fresh steamed broccoli. Keto-friendly and low carb options are provided at the bottom.
2 lbs thinly sliced sirloin beef
¼ cup cornstarch
2 medium onions, sliced
1-inch fresh ginger, peeled and grated
3-4 garlic cloves, peeled and pressed
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup soy sauce
1 cup water
2 green onions, sliced diagonally
Place the meat in a zip-close style bag and sprinkle with the cornstarch. Seal the bag and shake gently to coat.
In the slow cooker, combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, and water. Stir. Add the peeled, grated fresh gingerroot, sliced onions, and beef.
Cover, Cook on low for low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4 hours
Serve over rice or fresh salad greens and garnish with green onions and sesame seeds (if desired)
