No one is ever going to accuse this dish of being beautiful but it sure is tasty. While I would like to say that I’m super organized and using a slow cooker is something that helps me streamline my busy day, that is not the case today. I have recently discovered the TV show American Horror Story and I’m watching the entire second season over a few days. I just couldn’t do that AND make an elaborate dinner, now could I? Thankfully my family didn’t much mind and I got to finish this series. Thank goodness, I wasn’t getting anything else done.
Get our your slow cooker and do the following:
Cut 2 pounds flank steak into strips and dip in corn starch (this will thicken the sauce). Place the strips in the slow cooker.
Add one onion and green pepper, also cut into strips.
Add the sauce on top, cover and cook. We cooked this for five hours and put this on top of rice and added a side of roasted asparagus.
For the sauce mix the following ingredients together before adding to the slow cooker:
3/4 cup soy sauce (low sodium is fine)
1/2 cup lightly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, chopped or minced
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, chopped or minced
3/4 cup water
1 or 2 whole carrots, peeled and shredded (we used a cheese grater)
4 green onions, chopped
