Y’all understand how a lot I like gradual cooked meat, proper? It’s at all times so tender and filled with taste, but practically easy. While I often go for a southwest mix of spices, a few months in the past I examined an Asian impressed beef model and fell in love. This Slow Cooker Sesame Beef makes use of just a few substances and comes out with a lot taste, which is nice as a result of beef is pricey, so I like to make use of it sparingly in my meal and mix it with different inexpensive substances.

You can use it in a bowl meal like Bibimbap, or do a extra easy combo with just a few heat rice and broccoli florets. Asian impressed tacos are at all times enjoyable, like these Hoisin Tacos with Sweet and Sour Slaw, or you possibly can simply pile it on prime of a crunchy cabbage salad. You can stir it right into a batch of (not) Fried Rice, or serve it with some wealthy Garlic Noodles. Me? I couldn’t cease consuming it proper out of the gradual cooker. 😛 But truthfully, I’m going to pair it with rice, some fast pickled cucumbers, and shredded carrots (you may see this combo in a Sunday Meal Prep sooner or later!).
One extra observe about the kind of beef used. I used an eye fixed of spherical roast as a result of there wasn’t a lot of a variety at my retailer the opposite day, and this lower was one of the best worth. Eye of spherical is kind of lean, so the ensuing beef had extra of a flakey texture. A chuck roast or brisket can be extra very best as each have just a little extra fats and connective tissue, which can lead to a extra tender and moist shredded beef.
