Crock-Pot Honey Sesame Steak


"Hello, world!" Okay, if you don't know why I said that and it's in quotes, let me congratulate you on not being a computer science nerd like the rest of us. :) Anyway, I was inspired to create this lovely masterpiece after noticing some flank steak in the fridge earlier today. The combination of being lazy and wanting something delicious automatically pointed me to the crock pot. I usually make a pot roast/beef stew when in this situation but decided to do something different today. Off to the recipe!

Ingredients:

All in the pot:

Finished! Veggies + rice + meat = :)

Crock-Pot Honey Sesame Steak

Ingredients:
·         2-2.5 lbs  Flank Steak (any meat really but I had this one available)
·         1/4 cup Honey
·         1/3 cup reduced sodium tamari/soy sauce (tamari has a deeper flavor without added sodium)
·         2 tablespoons sake/rice wine
·         1 medium onion, diced
·         1/4 cup ketchup
·         3 tablespoons sesame oil
·         2 cloves minced garlic
·         If you like a spicy taste: 2-6 tablespoons Sriracha or spicy red chili sauce
·         5 teaspoons cornstarch mixed with 10 teaspoons water
·         Sesame seeds for garnish

Directions:
·         In the crock pot, combine honey, tamari, sake, onion, ketchup, sesame oil, garlic
·         Add steak, coat the steak well with the sauce
·         Cook on low for 4-6 hours
·         Remove steak and chop/shred into pieces
·         Mix water with cornstarch
·         Mix cornstarch mixture with sauce and cook for 5 minutes
·         Add chopped/shredded steak to sauce and cook for another 15 minutes
·         Add sesame seeds for garnish

The steak turned out delicious! We decided to pair it up with some rice and stir fried veggies. I am in MASSIVE food coma at the moment and can barely type. Hope you enjoy!
