Watch out PF Changs! I have had this recipe in my “to try” file for a while and when I finally got around to making it, it was like “Wow! Why did I wait so long!”

This is definitely easy peasy.  After shaking the steak strips in the ziplock with cornstarch to coat, brown them quickly over medium high heat

set aside and add the remaining sauce ingredients to crock pot and stir to mix sauce, then add onion slices

Add meat and top with a little more hoisin if you want…just a little flavor insurance…

and after about 4 hours, dinner is ready!  I served this with a rice pilaf with snow peas and cashews.

Here’s the recipe:

1 pound flank steak, cut into bite-size pieces
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
1/2 cup hoisin sauce

3-4 green onion tops, cut into 1 inch pieces

Place flank steak and cornstarch into a resealable plastic bag. Shake the bag to evenly coat the flank steak with the cornstarch. Allow to steak rest for 10 minutes.  Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir steak until evenly browned, 2 to 4 minutes. Place garlic, soy sauce, water, brown sugar, ginger, and hoisin sauce in a slow cooker.  Add onions and steak.  Cook on Low setting for about 4 hours.  Garnish with green onions. Makes 3-4 servings.

I hope you ENJOY!
