Gingered Beef & Veggies

1 March 2013

Post Pic PinterestThis is good.

Red meat makes Husband happy. Veggies make Mama happy, and there isn’t much else to it, which makes everyone happy.

You’ll need:

  • 1-1/2 pounds boneless beef round steak, cut into one-inch pieces
  • 4 medium carrots, cut into half-inch slices
  • 1/2 C sliced scallions
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 C water
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons instant beef bouillon granules
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 Tablespoons cold water
  • 1/2 C chopped red bell pepper
  • 2 C frozen sugar snap peas, thawed

You’ll do:

  1. Toss beef, carrots, scallions and garlic in the slow cooker.
  2. Combine water, soy sauce, ginger, bouillon and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Pour over the beef mixture.
  3. Cover and cook on Low for about eight hours (or High for probably about 4 hours).
  4. Turn heat to High, and combine corn starch with 3 T cold water. Stir cornstarch mixture and bell pepper into the slow cooker. Cover and cook for another 20 minutes.
  5. Stir in snap peas for a minute or two and serve. Over rice is great.

Makes six to eight servings, which is good ’cause you’ll want more for lunch tomorrow.
