Crock Pot Mongolian Beef

I don't ordinarily blog about food this often...but it's winter....and I live in Iowa...and I'm cold....and hungry.  So there.  Today is your lucky day though friends because I have discovered what may be one of my FAVE crockpot concoctions ever.  Crockpot Mongolian Beef....who woulda thunk it? Not I.  

Go forth...make Crockpot Mongolian Beef.  You can thank me later...oh and I like tulips and chocolates.  

Crockpot Mongolian Beef
1 1/2 lb. ball tip steak or flank steak (from Wallace Farms if you're nearby...Nick rocks)
3 cloves garlic, minced
4 sliced green onions
1 tsp. dried onion
1/2 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. white wine
1/4 c. cooking sherry
1/2 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. molasses
1 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. red chili flakes
1/2 tablespoon peanut butter
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 c. cornstarch

1) Slice meat thin, put in baggie with cornstarch.
2) Put all liquid and dry spices into crockpot, add PB, mix well.
3) Add garlic and 3 green onions.  Put meat on top, toss gingerly.
4) Cover and cook on low 4-6 hours (mine took around 4).


  1. And you blogged about it already?? Look at you! It looks really freakin tasty. Adding it to my list...

  2. This looks so good. I am adding it to my list to try!

  3. I just saw this on Pinterest. OMG. This looks *so* amazing. I don't have much luck with crock pot meals, but I'm for sure going to try this. Thanks!

  4. I may make this tomorrow! Looks delicious. I found you on Pinterest and am now following your blog.

  5. Making this now for tomorrow. Can't wait! I halved the recipe and used about a pound of raw shrimp in place of the steak. I also threw in a couple shrimp shells for added flavor. Yum!

  6. Life changing! Seriously, everyone must make this! Um, where shall I send the tulips and chocolates?

  7. wow this beef looks amazing and it is in a crock pot! found it on pinterest :-)

  8. Found this on Pinterest...making it now. I'm a former Iowan.

  9. Found on Pinterest ... cannot wait to try this week!! Iowa girls rock!! I should know, I am one too!

  10. Found this on Pinterest, and love so many of your crafts and such on the blog. Just spent way too much time looking around and pinning away! Love your blog, so much creativity :)

  12. Found this on pinterest, and while it's not in my mouth yet, my house smells AMAZING.

    One quick critique though: For those of us who cook quickly... I almost missed the 1/2 T vs. 1/2 t. Might be easier for some if it said 1.5 t (instead of 1/2 T)... just a thought :)

    thanks for the great recipe!

  14. Made this tonight. Way sky-high two thumbs up!! Amazing goodness. Thanks for this recipe. It's a keeper. :-)

  15. Just curious why you toss the meat in cornstarch first? I made this last night and the sauce turned out as thick as paste, is that right?

  16. Just curious...I was looking at your kitchen remodel and noticed a sign from Thor, IA...are you from that area? I grew up in Goldfield which is very near there. Small world!

  17. I just wanted to say that I made this tonight and it was great especially for a crock pot meal. I love the conveinience of crock pots but never reall like the way most things turn out, but this was great served over rice! Thank you!!

  18. Is that fresh or dried ginger?

  19. Made this dish for dinner last night and everyone loved it! My six and two year old both cleaned their plate. It was super easy and so delicious. Thanks for sharing!

  20. This look amazing - I cant wait to try it. I featured this recipe in my "What I Bookmarked This Week" post today. Stop by and see!

  21. I love mongolian beef from PF Changs, so I'm drooling over this one! I'll have to try this! Thanks for sharing!

  22. I truly hate most crockpot recipes. I think it's the texture the meat gets. This one was so good. Very flavorful. Thanks for the awesome recipe.

  23. Have had this on my pinterest board for awhile, and finally made it today. DELICIOUS!!! Hubby loved it as well! Thank you!!!

  24. Made this tonight and it was AWESOME!!! Thanks for posting. Our family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed it. :)

    1. A lot of recipes with soy sauce are too salty for me too and I use either low sodium soy sauce, coconut Aminos or I'll substitute water for half the soy sauce. Putting this in the crock pot right now!

  26. Use low sodium soy sauce for sure - very salty.


I kinda love comments, who doesn't? Nice comments. Only. I'm picky that way. ;-)
