Slow Cooker Recipe: Mongolian Beef Dinner – Quick Meal for After School

This year my goal is to add one slow cooker recipe to my blog each week. Today is our Mongolian Beef Slow Cooker recipe! Each slow cooker recipe featured will be EASY and perfect for busy parents and teachers. You can throw it in your crock pot the night before or the morning of and just cook it on low till dinner!

The whole instant pot craze is great and all but I don’t want to have to come home after a long day at school and prep my family’s dinner! (not to mention the cost of the product!) I’d rather do it all the night before!

You can literally throw this in and leave it! If you DO use an instant pot you can still use this recipe! Just adjust your cook time to 25-30 minutes instead.

4. Cook on low while you’re at work/school (or on high for 3-4 hours). I HIGHLY recommend using a disposable slow cooker liner to make cleanup a cinch! I use them every time! (unless I’m taking photos!)

I recommend serving this on top of (or next to) rice. You can set that up before school too and have it ready to serve when you get home! I use a simple rice cooker which I couldn’t live without!

Add some chopped green onions on top and you’re ready to serve! This is a favorite in our family! We never have leftovers BUT it’s an awesome meal to take for lunch the next day so I suggest doubling or tripling your recipe!
