“I got this recipe from a friend and it is wonderful. My kids love it. It tastes like you got it at a Chinese restaurant and the slow cooker does most of the work! Serve over steamed rice.”

This was very good. I used round steak that I had on hand and it worked fine. I didn't have any hoisin sauce so I made some. There's not a recipe on this site so here's the recipe for hoisin. 4 Tbsp Soy sauce, 2 Tbsp Peanut butter,1 Tbsp Honey/molasses,2 tsp White vinegar,1/8 tsp Garlic powder, 2 tsp Sesame seed oil, 20 drops Chinese-style hot sauce, 1/8 tsp Pepper. My family said "it's a keeper!

this was AWESOME!! word to the wise, its quite sweet, so if you dont like sweet, cut back on the sugar. we loved it!! flank steak was too expensive, so i substituted flap meat and it was so tender.served it over white rice. i also added chili garlic sauce to kick up the heat, maybe 2-3 Tbsp. loved the flavor combo spicy/sweet. thanks for a ridiculously easy and delicious recipe!!!



This was a really good meal. I spread it over a bed of white sticky rice and my wife loved it. Things I may change for the next time I make this: I used Teriyaki Sauce instead of soy (I didn't have soy sauce), so I should reduce the amount of brown sugar. I would also throw in the green and white onions at about 2hrs into cooking so they don't just turn into sauce, I think if they cooked for less time they would add more appeal and substance to the dish. I also added red pepper flakes to spice it up a little, I think I put in about a tablespoon and it was a mild spice.
