Crockpot Mongolian Beef

I want to share one of my favorite crockpot recipes with you. I found it on Pinterest a few years back and have made it many times, and shared the recipe even more. It’s easy and tasty and a family favorite. Don’t let the long list of ingredients turn you away – they are mostly pantry staples. I serve it over white jasmine rice with thinly sliced green onions on top.

The recipe comes from a blog called Notes From The Heartland, and was originally posted back in 2012. I’m curious just how many times it’s been pinned and re-blogged and shared over the past 6 years! And I wonder if the blogger had any inkling at the time how popular this recipe would be.

Here has a the recipe, but you can also access the original HERE. I made minor changes, first I use sirloin instead of flank steak. Second, I don’t put the green onions in with the meet – I only use them sprinkled on top when I serve it. And third, I use tapioca starch but that’s only because my hubby doesn’t do corn products. And finally, I sprinkle a few sesame seeds on top when I plate it. For everything else I follow he recipe. Enjoy!
