Bring the flavors of the East to your kitchen tonight with this sweet and spicy Mongolian ground beef dish, cooked right in your slow cooker. This modernized version of the Chinese-American staple starts off in a skillet, and then finishes low and slow in the Crock-Pot until the beef and vegetables are fully cooked and the Mongolian sauce is thickened.
While a traditional Mongolian beef dish uses sliced steak, the recipe below instead uses lean ground beef, making the dish more cost-efficient and easier to eat for younger kids. It's perfect to make for any family night at home or when you don't have the time or energy to go out to a Chinese restaurant. With this dish, it's truly "set it and forget it!"
