Korean Beef

Korean Beef goes great with the green beans and a side of rice and can be made in the slow cooker or instapot. This Korean recipe has been adapted from The Recipe Critic.



  • 1 1/2 - 2 lb flank steak
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch

Sauce to add to the slow cooker

  • 1 small finely chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger


  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons seasame seeds toasted


  • Slice flank steak into thin strips (approximately 1 cm thick) cutting across the grain. Add steak and cornstarch to a ziplock bag and shake to coat.
  • In the base of your slow cooker or instapot add all sauce ingredients. Then add steak and stir.
  • In the instapot cook for 30 minutes then put on slow cook until dinner (2-3 hours) pressure will release on it's own in this case. In a slow cooker cook on high for 3 hours or on low for 5 hours. Garnish with sliced green onions and toasted sesame seeds.
