My youngest sister just left to college in Korea.  We had a fun little going away party for her.  I grilled up some Korean Chicken and it was amazing!  The flavors were out of this world and it was a hit at the party.  I couldn’t wait to try some more recipes out.  My sister loves everything about Korea and the culture and I am excited to go and visit her soon.

When I started to do some research on a Korean Beef recipe, I found that the recipes are pretty similar to this Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef.  This recipe instantly became a favorite here on the blog.  One of the best things that I have ever had and quickly became popular.

With a a few slight changes this Slow Cooker Korean Beef was born.  And let me just tell you.  It is to die for.  As soon as it came out of the slow cooker I couldn’t stop eating it.  The flavor is absolute perfection.

I love cooking beef in the slow cooker because it cooks so tender.  One of my favorite ways to cook it.  It melts in your mouth with the first bite.  And you are going to love the flavor of this beef.  It thickens up as it cooks and coats the chicken perfectly.  Top with some sesame seeds and green onions and you will have a meal that you will make again and again!

  1. I love cooking beef in the slow cooker because it cooks so tender. One of my favorite ways to cook it. It melts in your mouth with the first bite. And you are going to love the flavor of this beef. It thickens up as it cooks and coats the chicken perfectly. Top with some sesame seeds and green onions and you will have a meal that you will make again and again!

  2. I’ve made this twice within a week!! It’s awesome, and so easy! The only change I made was cutting back the brown sugar by 2 Tablespoons….just a hair too sweet for us.
    We can now enjoy Korean Beef without having to drive anywhere!
    Do you think it could be doubled?

      1. Great! Then I can make for guests, since hubby loves it sooo much! I jus think finished adding the flank steak to the crock pot for another fabulous dinner of Korean Beef!! Thank you!!

  3. Does this freeze well? I am expecting #2 in November and on the hunt for yummy recipes that freeze and reheat well so I can get a jump on stocking the freezer!

      1. Would you recommend freezing all ingredients before cooking or should anything be left out? What about freezing after it’s already done for a quick reheat? Thanks!

  4. I love how simple the recipe sounds. When I tried it, I did the slow cooking for 4-5 hours. But the beef was done in 2! And the meat was tough! What did I do wrong?

    1. Oh no! I am sorry! Yes, it is supposed to be a simple recipe. I am not sure if your slow cooker was too big or if the meat was not enough. There could be so many variables. I am sorry that it did not work out the best for you. Hope that you will try it again.
