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.
