Easy Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef Recipe
Here is what you will need to serve 4
- 680g Sirloin Steak, thinly sliced
- 1 x Onion, sliced
- 1 x Red Pepper, sliced
- 3 x Garlic Cloves, minced
- 150ml Light Soy Sauce
- 200ml Water
- 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
- 125g Hoisin Sauce
- 160g Smooth Apricot Jam
- 3 tbsp Corn Flour & 3 tbsp Water, to thicken
You can serve this with whatever you like. Rice, noodles, couscous, whatever!
- Slow Cooker (Mine has a 3.5 litre capacity)
Firstly, slice your steak, onion & peppers and mince the garlic cloves. Throw it into the slow cooker.
In a large bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, water, ground ginger, hoisin sauce & apricot jam.
Pour it into the slow cooker & give it a little mix.
Pop the lid on and cook on slow for 5 hours.
30-45 minutes before you want to eat, mix together the corn flour and water then stir it into the steak. Allow to continue cooking until the sauce thickens to a consistency you’re happy with.
And that is literally it!
Easy peasy right?! I reckon you’ll be making this Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef again don’t you? Although I can hear a few of you asking, why no salt in the recipe Emma? Well, that’s because the soy sauce is plenty salty enough to go around! Of course if you’d like a little more seasoning, you’re more than welcome to add some.
I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time.
