Easy Crockpot Mongolian Beef

This crock pot meal is fabulous when school is in full swing and there are after school activities.


1 pound stewing meat (I actually use 1.5 pounds and there is plenty of sauce)
2 teaspoon olive oil
1 onion, sliced thickly (I omit this as my children don't like onion)
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon fresh minced ginger
1/2 cup hoisin sauce


Dump everything in the crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours. If you are going to cook it a bit longer it is advisable to add a little bit more water so it doesn't dry out. This is delicious with rice and a nice green vegetable such as broccoli, peas or green beans.

Freezer directions:

Mix all liquid ingredients and put in a freezer bag. Add your meat and mix up to be sure the beef is covered. Seal and date your bag and place flat in the freezer. Take out of freezer the night before cooking and put in your fridge to thaw. Next morning put in the crockpot and follow directions above.
