Crockpot Mongolian Beef


Most people think of crockpots as a fall/winter cooking tool, but they can be awesome dinner savers year round! I try to plan crockpot meals when I have a full day of appointments and the last thing I want to worry about at the end of the day is preparing dinner. As much as I love Chinese food, most restaurant dishes are packed with questionable ingredients and crazy amounts of sodium, so I’m always looking for new recipes to try at home. This Monogolian beef dish is so easy to throw together and can be done on your lunch break. Next time I’m going to throw in some broccoli as well, but we loved this dish and will definitely be making it again in the future!
