Mongolian Beef and Broccoli

Mongolian Beef and Broccoli

You know when you have a craving for Chinese but don’t want to go out or order in? That happens and this dish is the best thing to satisfy that craving. It’s so delicious and couldn’t get any fresher. The sauce, I think I could drink it with a straw! It’s great the day you make it and is even better as leftovers. Hint – if you think you’ll have leftovers, save some of the broccoli to add for that meal to keep it fresh. We all know how overcooked broccoli can be – soft and squishy – but if that’s how you prefer it, add all the broccoli this first time around! It’s your choice!

And this recipe uses your slow-cooker! It can’t get any easier than that!
