It’s not likely that you’ve seen a lot of Asian dishes on my blog and that’s for good reason: I’m sort of clueless when it comes to Asian food. Like super-duper clueless.
This has not served me well though; see, I love Asian and Asian-fusion food and so many times have craved it with no confidence to make it myself. Something about too many times using too much soy sauce and too little ginger, or making it too spicy because of my lack of sriracha experience.
HOWEVER I have recently been making more Asian food at home and came up with this tasty little Asian-fusion number that will have y’all shouting for joy and eating too much. Luckily it’s a a pretty healthy recipe, which means that you can eat more. Obvi.
Seriously though, the slow-cooker is your bestie with this meal and you can serve it any way you want. I chose quesadillas because I love me some crispy toasted tortillas, even with soy sauce and ginger. It would be fabulous served atop rice, rice noodles or just in a bowl with extra sauce.
SLOW COOKER KOREAN SHREDDED BEEF
- 1 3-4 lb beef roast (I used chuck, but any roast will do)
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 small red onion, chopped
- 1 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
- 3 tsp sriracha sauce
Combine all ingredients except the beef in a slow cooker and mix to combine. Add the beef and set to cook for 8 hours on low (4-5 on high). If you can it’s best to flip halfway through, just to let the sauce soak into all sides of the meat. During the last half hour of cooking, shred the beef and add it back into the sauce. Let it continue to cook until done; serve hot!
CREAMY ASIAN BROCCOLI SLAW
- 1 package broccoli slaw (about 2 cups or so)
- 3 oz. Greek yogurt
- 2 Tbsp mayonnaise
- 1 Tbsp sriracha sauce
- 1 Tbsp lime juice
- 2 tsp honey
- 1 tsp soy sauce
Whisk together all ingredients except the broccoli slaw in a bowl. Fold in the broccoli slaw. Refrigerate for about 2 hours to allow the broccoli slaw to soften slightly. Serve cold!
Seriously, seriously delicious and seriously, seriously easy. My kind of dinner!
