A Nummy Slow Cooker Recipe

Friday, January 19th, 2007

This recipe is from my friend Renee:

GINGER BEEF

6 pounds sirloin tip beef (or other beef suitable for slow cooking)

3 cups water

1 ½ cups chopped green onion

¾ cup soy sauce

6 teaspoons beef bouillon granules

6 teaspoons minced fresh ginger

6 teaspoons minced fresh garlic

3 one-gallon freezer bags

Rinse and trim beef as desired. Cut into thick strips, about 2 by 5 inches. (The beef should not be in bite-size pieces). Divide beef strips evenly among the one-gallon freezer bags. Each bag will contain about 1 ½ pounds, depending on amount trimmed.

Into each of the three bags of beef measure 1 cup water, ½ cup chopped green onion, ¼ cup soy sauce, 2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules, 2 teaspoons minced ginger and 2 teaspoons minced garlic. Seal and freeze.

Makes 3 entrees, 6 servings each

To cook one entrée: You may thaw this entrée in the refrigerator or cook it straight from the freezer. Empty beef and broth into slow cooker. Cook on low for 5 to 6 hours, or until beef is tender and pulls apart easily with a fork.
