The first time I tried Mongolian Beef was at the 2012 Disney Social Media Moms Party that was held at the Art of Animation Resort before the resort opened to the public. I was quickly addicted. I can’t remember how many times I got into the buffet line to get more beef but I’m thinking it was 5 or 6! I was hooked. Since that time I have eaten Mongolian Beef at a few other places but none of them compare to the deliciousness of the Mongolian Beef at that party! While searching Pinterest for easy recipes I found this pin for Easy Crockpot Mongolian Beef and it instantly was re-pinned to my “Recipes I want to Try“ board.
- 1 lb stew meat
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1 TBS minced garlic
- 1/2 c soy sauce
- 1/2 c water
- 1/2 c brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp minced ginger
- 1/2 c hoisin sauce
- Place the meat in the crockpot.
- Add all of the other ingredients to the crockpot.
- Using a large spoon, stir well.
- Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
- Serve over Asian noodles.
This makes a great freezer recipe. Put all of the ingredients in a bag, seal, mix it well and freeze flat. Defrost in the fridge the night before then dump it in the crockpot in the morning.
We all enjoyed this meal and Aaron loved it and said it was one of his favorites. This was also my first time cooking Asian noodles and once the water is boiling the noodles cooked up in about 3 minutes! Recipes don’t get much easier than this so please pin it to your recipe board so you don’t lose it.
