My problem eater scarfed this up and asked for more, and I've rated it on that basis. For me, this was a little bland. I used skirt steak, which was excellent and in my area less than half the price of flank steak. I think next time I'll wait to put the green onion tops until the very end, and also add a little more fresh ginger, possibly some red pepper flakes. Also, I have a small crockpot and this amount barely filled it up halfway. It was quite tender after 4 1/2 hrs. If you have a larger crockpot, you will really want to watch the time. The bean sprouts did not look great, so I subbed spinach, which worked beautifully. Definitely a recipe worth playing around with again.
