Who else loves a good crock pot recipe?!

Slow cooker recipes are great any day of the week, but they’re definitely my best friend on Sundays. With church and attempting to rest, I really rely on those Slow Cooker recipes and love that they usually require little work!

Our favorite Sunday crock pot recipe is our Roast recipe since it’s super simple!! Fortunately, I have another great slow cooker recipe to share with you today for Mongolian Beef.

You can easily change it up to your liking using your favorite meat and veggies. I think Broccoli would be a great addition and even some snow peas! 😉 I am seriously obsessed with Asian food and am so glad to have another delicious Crock pot recipe to enjoy on Sundays!

Tips + Variations

Use your favorite cut of beef for these. The recipe card calls for flank steak, but we used sliced chuck roast. Another great cut includes beef tip roast or even sirloin.

For a tender piece of meat slice your flank steak against the grain. The grain are the lines like on wood. Cut across the lines and not alongside them.


  • Use sliced chicken or pork instead of beef.
  • Add heat with some sliced red chili peppers, sriracha, or sprinkle red chili flakes on top.

    My family loves Chinese food & I rarely make it at home, since recipes are usually so involved & have a million steps or crazy ingredients. Not this one! Simple & super easy!! It tastes amazing!

  4. 5 stars
    Great flavor and I appreciated the extra tips like slicing against the grain. I don’t always know to do things like that.

    Love this recipe a lot! It turned out way better than any that I’ve ever had in restaurants. Thank you for sharing another fantastic recipe with us.

    This was so easy and absolutely delicious! I’d cook the asparagus separately next time, though, as it didn’t hold up well. The carrots were perfectly cooked, would add more. Definitely making again. Thank you.
