Crockpot Mongolian Beef

Crockpot Mongolian Beef

-adapted from therecipecritic.com

  • 2 lbs Flank Steak
  • 6 T cornstarch
  • 3 T Olive Oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup grated Carrots
  • 1 bunch green onions
  • crushed red pepper flakes or Sriracha

 

Slice the flank steak into thin strips--or better yet, do as I did--ask the butcher at your grocery store to kindly slice it for you. He will happily oblige, and you will have just saved yourself a bunch of trouble. Add the flank steak and the cornstarch to a large ziploc bag, seal, and shake well to coat. In a crockpot, add oil, garlic, soy sauce, water, brown sugar, and carrots. Stir well to blend. Add beef/cornstarch mixture and mix well to coat beef with the sauce. Cook on high for 3 hours, or low for 5 hours. Stir in green onions and mix beef well to break apart (tends to clump together during cooking a bit). Serve over rice and sprinkle with crushed red pepper flakes or Sriracha if you need a little heat in your Mongolian beef as I do.

I do what I do because I love it.  The greatest part of existing on this planet is the ability to work with other humans and see their joy come to life.  That's why I work in two different worlds.  

As a wedding planner, I am lucky enough to get to know couples as they go through an intense but really joyful journey. My goal is for you to focus on the marriage part, while I focus on the wedding part of.  Let me take some of the work of your hands and let you two enjoy your day, enjoy the people that will be celebrating with you, and be in the moment.

As a web developer and digital marketer, I get to see your heart and soul come to life on the interwebs.  We get to discuss your goals and your vision, and my hope is that I help that come to fruition. Basically, I am here to make dreams come true, and I could not think of a better way to exist.  

I currently live with my fiancé and attempt to bribe him daily into letting me get a puppy.  Lover of eggs and avocado toast, too many potted plants, a good Netflix binge, and swearing more than my parents would care to hear.

Let's dream together.
