- In a large skillet on medium heat, add sesame oil and brown meat on all sides. Add meat to the crock pot and Looing sauce. Add onions, mushrooms, Bell pepper and peppercorns. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Ladle on top of rice.
I'm sorry to say that this really didn't work for me. First, there is WAY too much liquid in the recipe. I cut it by 4 while doubling the beef, and there was still too much. Also, the flavor was fairly one-dimensional. I tasted ginger and soy, not much else. I'm sorry- I really wanted to like this since I really enjoy the ingredients; but it needs to be reworked to be a winner.
