Another slow cooker recipe. This last year has been a year of slow cooker recipes. Just a couple of weeks ago, I made stew chicken inspired by Belize.
Earlier this year I made Lamb Tagine. That was a really good recipe. It was one of the best recipes I have made all year. Very yummy!
I have posted about hula chicken, beef barbacoa, honey mustard chicken, chicken stew, and veggie tray soup. I remember being unimpressed with the veggie tray soup.
This slow cooker sesame beef recipe came from a blog called Budget Bytes. I added a little more cornstarch, but besides that I made it as directed.
The ingredients are 1/2 cup soy sauce, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 2 garlic cloves, 1/2 tablespoon minced ginger, 1 teaspoon sesame oil, 2 pounds beef roast, 6 green onions, 2 tablespoons corn starch, and sesame seeds.
I began by making the sauce. I added the soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, and 1/2 cup water to a small bowl. I whisked the ingredients together.
I chopped up the beef roast and added it to a slow cooker. I added the three of the chopped green onions and the sauce mixture. I stirred the mixture together, and cooked the meat for four hours on high heat. After four hours, I mixed the corn starch with three tablespoons of water. I let the meat cook for another 40 minutes.
I served this dish over white rice. I also garnished each serving with some of the remaining green onion and sesame seeds.
This was flavorful and succulent meat.
Even though I used a cheaper cut of meat, it was very tender. I guess cooking meat for over four hours really softens the connective tissues.
I enjoyed this recipe. It was easy to make but tasted fantastic. It was scrumptious. I would make it again in the future.
