Slow Cooker Orange Beef – Country Life Charm Blog
Do you want an easy recipe that you can put together, forget about it and dazzle all the taste buds? Then this recipe is the one for you! My Slow Cooker Orange Beef is tasty and simple.
I love quick and easy recipes. I like to cook, but it can be exhausting to always have to. Quick recipes are good, however, they can become repetitive. The thought of eating the same thing over and over again makes me feel a little nauseous, so I need a variety of recipes on the monthly menu. With this dish, you literally throw all the ingredients into the slow cooker, put the lid on it and leave. When dinner time comes, simply crumble and plate with the sides you want. My delicious orange flesh recipe is great for busy moms and families on the go.
What you’ll need…
- Beef Roast
- Bbq Sauce Orange
- Soy Sauce
- Garlic Powder
- Corn Starch Step
Place your roast meat in the slow cooker. I used a 3-pound wagyu roast I had on hand. Any roast or piece of meat you have will work.
Now add all the ingredients, except the cornstarch, in the slow cooker with the meat. You will use cornstarch in a later step.
*Do not add water!
After all the ingredients are with the meat, place the lid on top and turn the pot on high heat for 4-5 hours or low for 7-8 hours. Don’t worry if you overdo a bit of the time frame. Recipes like these are very indulgent and honestly, I’ve never had a dry one.
Once the meat is well cooked and to your liking, take out some of the juice and put it in a small bowl. I would take out a tablespoon about 1/4 or 1/2 cup. You are reserving this juice to add cornstarch.
After setting aside some juice, it’s time to crush the meat. If you normally use a hand mixer to crush meat like me, word to the wise, don’t do that this time! It will send juice flying through your kitchen. Use a fork or two and destroy.
Measure 4 teaspoons of cornstarch, adding one at a time to the chilled meat juice that was reserved. Mix it after each teaspoon to remove any lumps that form. Once mixed, add the suspension back into the clay pot. Let this cook for an additional 10-15 minutes to thicken.
Step 6- Optional
You can add sesame seeds at this point if you wish. I added a palm full of sesame seeds to the orange flesh.
Step 7… It’s time to eat!
Now you’ve made my delicious Slow Cooker orange meat for your family to enjoy! I hope you like it as much as we do.
** I put the orange beef on top of a bed of instant white rice and combined it with a vegetable. The rice soaks part of the juice and adds a pleasant texture to this meat.
