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.
