Slow Cooker Sesame Beef Recipe:

As you know, we love using the slow cooker and this beef recipe does not disappoint. The beef has the most wonderful flavor and everything blends together for the best meal.

The sauce is loaded with brown sugar, garlic, soy sauce and more to make every last drop so tasty. I could literally eat this sauce by the spoonful because it is seriously that good.

You are going to love it! The slow cooker does all the work for this meal and you can set it and forget it!

A good crockpot is a must:

I love crock pot cooking and I have several crock pots.

If you are in the market for something new, I really love my Instant Pot Auro Crock Pot . The nice thing about this one is that you can brown in it as well.

I also really like this crockpot.  I use this all the time and it’s great.

My favorite feature is that you can lock the lid down. This is awesome for when you need to take the crock pot somewhere.

I often use the slow cooker to take dishes to potluck events and this feature is amazing!

Another favorite is this programmable crock pot  for when I am am not at home all day. I love coming home to a nice meal already done!

I also like to use crock pot liners to make clean up a breeze. These are worth every penny and save a ton of time.

How to serve Sesame Beef:

There are multiple ways to serve this sesame beef slow cooker recipe.

  • Serve over cooked white rice or brown rice and top with the rest of sliced green onions.
  • Top with shredded carrots for an added crunch.
  • Serve over tortillas to make Asian Beef tacos.
  • You can also steam broccoli in the microwave for a quick and easy side dish. It is so simple goes great with this recipe.
  • If you like spicy dishes, top this beef with red pepper flakes when serving.

What type of beef should I use?

We normally use beef roast in this recipe. However, you can try using flank steak to make slow cooker flank steak teriyaki.

The chuck roast or a brisket would also be really good. Both of these cuts of meat will get very tender when cooked in a slow cooker.

Budget Friendly:

This recipe is easy to modify for what you have on hand and this really helps your budget. By cooking like this, it really helps me to save money on groceries. It is a huge help to our budget.

If you do not prefer red meat, you can also make this with chicken instead.  Follow the same process and slice the chicken breasts or thighs to make a delicious meal with chicken.

Try sesame beef and broccoli slow cooker!

Add broccoli to the slow cooker for another idea. Stir the broccoli into the slow cooker for the last hour of the cook time.

This is a great way to get more veggies in your diet and it tastes amazing from being slow cooked with the sauce.

This slow cooker sesame beef is so delicious. You can even try using the instant pot if you are short on time.

If your family likes a good stir fry recipe, try this meal for an easy way to enjoy sesame beef. The soy sauce brown sugar mixture is simply amazing!

Leftovers:

Refrigerate the leftovers in an air tight container for up to 5 days.

How to Freeze:

The leftovers of this sesame beef freeze great as well. Store in a freezer safe bag or container for up to 3 months.

To defrost, place the mixture in a crock pot on low for 1-2 hours.

    I love crockpot recipes! I had been looking for a new recipe to add to my rotation. This one was perfect. I served it over some white rice. It was better the second day.

  2. I mix the sesame oil with the soy sauce mixture prior to adding it to the crock pot. I have clarified this in the recipe. Thank you.
