Crockpot Mongolian Beef

I go through phases with my crockpot. I either use it all the time or not at all. Apparently I am in a crockpot phase right now.  Maybe it's the chill in the air that has me reaching for it more often or the fact that I need super easy dinners right now.  If I don't have a baby wanting to be held, it's a needy dog crawling all over me.

In my Florida room you can find my makeshift kitchen, complete with coffee maker and crockpot, because really what more do you need. I wash dishes about once a week in the laundry sink. Paper plates, cups, and plastic utensils are our friends. You don't have to spend a ton of money … [Read more...]
