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.

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.

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.
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.

Would this recipe also work with Chicken?
Very good flavor! We had it with steamed brocoli.
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.
When do we use the sesame oil? It’s not listed on the instructions?
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.
What cut of beef would be best for this? Because the price of beef per pound was so high, I ended purchasing cut-up beef stew pieces. The sauce was delicious, but the beef didn’t really turn out that tender.
