Sunday Slow Cooker:  Asian Shredded Beef

Have you hit the holiday cooking wall? First there is Thanksgiving. Normally around Thanksgiving I can’t wait to dive into the holiday cooking – cookies, pies, ham, turkey – you name it, I want to cook it. Then the holiday parties, brunches, work events, etc. etc. etc. start to kick in. The first few are fun, the next few are stressful, the last couple leave me tempted to buy a store bought treat and put it on a fancy plate. And there are likely still many more holiday meals in front of you. So instead of teetering on the edge of cooking insanity, why not drop a delicious meal in the crockpot, watch a holiday movie, and relax for the day so you can get excited again about all the wonderful holiday food in your future.

This meal lets you to just that. Wrap the beef in lettuce, serve it as tacos with cabbage slaw and hot sauce, or serve over a bed of Asian veggies and brown rice. Or if you are like me, eat it directly out of the crock pot by the forkful. The seasoning would also work great with chicken or pork. So take two minutes to get this in the crockpot and sit back and relax. No cooking today.
