Slow cooker Korean beef recipe. Who needs takeout when it takes just 10 minutes to prepare this slow cooker Korean beef? Simply get all your ingredients together and let the slow cooker work its magic.
The beef melts in your mouth with every bite thanks to the sweet and savoury flavours of the bulgogi sauce (which can be found in the Asian section of the supermarket), onion, garlic and ginger. The smoky notes from the sauce also infuse into the meat, and the addition of toasted sesame seeds on top show how easy it is to create a rich and complex flavour profile with such simple ingredients.
The beef mixture can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days, making it perfect to have for leftovers. If you ask me, this recipe has the same strengths as a curry – it tastes even better the next day!
