Time to Food Travel - Mongolian Beef

Yum
This food traveling is the best!
No jet lag!
No lost luggage!
No winter...well, not really but a Florida girl can pretend.
So now our passport is being stamped in another part of Asia... for Mongolian Beef and this tastes as good as a restaurant!  My husband thought I got it catered in!  No sireee!  A recipe from Six Sisters Stuff that uses the crock pot!


Here's what you need:
1 1/2 pounds beef flank steak, cut into stir-fry sized strips
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon minced ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup shredded carrots
3 medium green onions, chopped
Directions:
Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Place cornstarch in a bowl. Coat each piece of steak in cornstarch and place in crock pot. Discard any remaining cornstarch. Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl and pour over beef in crock pot. Cook in crockpot on high for 2-3 hours or low for 4-5 hours. Serve over rice, topped with additional sliced green onions.


This is so flavorful and just melts in your mouth!  Everything all in one and cooking away for you!

Boy this traveling thing is a snap!

Celebrate the little things that make life sweet...like cheap traveling!
