One of my favorite things to do is to look for different recipes on Facebook. I cannot lie I love food, all kinds of food. I enjoy seeing all the different recipes that people post and exploring the different cooking pages. I find so many things that I would like to try, but I rarely do because of time. That is where this recipe caught my attention, slow cooker Mongolian beef sounds like a great meal for a busy work night. This recipe comes from: therecipecritic.com.
Easy to Make
This recipe is really easy to prepare with actual prep-time of about 10 minutes. The actual time until it is ready to serve is a bit longer of course because we are using a slow cooker. This recipe is great to throw in the slow cooker when you need to run out and want a meal nearly ready when you get home.
Because we are cooking this in a slow cooker the flavor is deep, seeping through the meat during the hours of cooking. It is also this slow cooking that makes the meat so tender that it practically melts in your mouth. To turn this into a complete meal, serve the slow cooker Mongolian beef over a bed of rice or Rice noodles, with your favorite steamed vegetables on the side.
