Mongolian Beef with Fried Rice

This Crockpot favorite will leave your family asking “when are you going to make this again?” It’s so easy and super delicious!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb flank steak
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce, divided
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup grated carrots
  • Green onions, for garnish
  • 20 oz ready rice
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp fried rice seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp butter
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar or substitute
  • Recipe

    Cut steak into thin strips. In a Ziploc bag, add steak and cornstarch. Shake to coat. Add olive oil, garlic, ¼ cup soy sauce, water, brown sugar substitute or brown sugar, and carrots to slow cooker and stir. Add flank steak and stir until coated. Cook on high 4-5 hours or on low 6-7 hours or until tender. Cook rice per package directions. In medium skillet on medium/high, heat canola oil. Spread cooked rice evenly in pan. Allow to crisp undisturbed for 3-5 minutes. Add remaining ¼ cup soy sauce and fried rice seasoning. Stir and crisp rice another 3-5 minutes. Create a well in the middle of the rice and melt butter inside. Add eggs and scramble in well until cooked. Fold egg into rice and remove from heat. To serve, top Mongolian beef with sliced green onions, top rice with sesame seeds, and serve with a vegetable such as steamed broccoli, sautéed bok choy or stir fry vegetables. Note: To lower calorie and carbohydrate amounts, I used Swerve brown sugar substitute. You can also lower the calorie and fat amounts by serving over steamed rice. Cauliflower rice is another great alternative.

    Recipe calls for 1 cup of soy sauce, but instructions only use 1/2 cup. Also, recipe does not indicate how much brown sugar to use. Thank you
