Is it me or is January twice as long as a regular month? It feels to drag on forever and the dreary weather makes me want to hibernate.

Luckily I can always rely on my slow cooker for easy and comforting meals… Mongolian beef is a favorite with my kids (minor miracle as they are so fussy) and it’s become a regular on our family table this winter.

Normally Mongolian Beef is made with flank steak and stir fried. This Crockpot version is made with braising /chuck steak which cooks slowly until melt-in-the mouth tender.

The slow cooker really concentrates the flavor of the sauce so you don’t need to add any extra salt.

The sliced peppers melt into the stew so i always add some towards the end of the cooking time. Bear that in mind if you are adding any other vegetables!

MONGOLIAN BEEF INGREDIENTS

You will need a slow cooker for this recipe, ideally one that allows for searing. I browned the beef for extra flavor, but I am sure that step could be skipped without sacrificing the yumminess!

  • Beef – braising steak, chuck steak or any cut suitable for slow cooking
  • Onions
  • Peppers – red, yellow and orange bell peppers
  • Minced garlic and ginger – I use a microplane zester to mince these
  • Chili purée or Sriracha
  • Soy sauce, Tamari or coconut aminos
  • Beef stock cube 
  • Brown sugar or a suitable sugar substitute such as Sukrin Gold to keep the dish keto friendly
  • Xanthan gum to thicken the sauce. You can also use cornstarch (diluted in cold water) if preferred
  • Green onions (scallions) to serve
  • Red chili to serve

Heat the oil in a skillet and brown the beef, in batches, over high heat. Allow the beef to get a good color before setting aside in a bowl.

Add a splash of water to the pan and scrape any browned bits loose with a wooden spoon. Pour any liquid from the pan into the bowl.
