Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef Recipe

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love takeout from a good Mongoli Grill. It makes life so easy! I don’t have to meal prep or clean up.

Not to mention the variety of foods to choose from! Sadly, I know that it isn’t a cost effective or healthy choice to eat takeout all the time.

Too busy to make this right away? Pin it for later! Pin this post to your favorite board on Pinterest and it will be there when you’re ready!

That’s why I love finding and creating recipes that I can easily make at home, to replace some of our favorite takeout dishes. I also use my slow cooker a lot.

Slow cooker meals are perfect for busy weeknights. If a recipe fits both of these categories, like this Mongolian beef, I have hit the jackpot.

Substitutions:

  • If you aren’t able to find flank steak, you can substitute it with skirt steak, hanger steak, or sirloin steak.
  • Add some red pepper flakes in with the rest of the seasonings, if you like it a little bit spicy.
  • Coconut aminos can be used instead of soy sauce.
  • Serve this popular dish with brown rice, white rice, or even cauliflower rice.

Tips and tricks:

  • Try this recipe in your Instant Pot or stir fry it on the stove top.
  • This recipe is a great choice for meal prepping. Cook up your rice and beef and divide each evenly into containers. You will have four individual servings to use for lunches or dinners throughout the week.
  • Cooking in a Crock Pot is my favorite way to save money. I can use less expensive cuts of meat and still get juicy, tender results from the slow cooking process.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container, in the fridge, for up to five days.
