Slow Cooker Ginger Orange Beef Recipe

Slow Cooker Ginger Orange Beef Recipe

A couple of my favorite dishes we order when we order Asian food in is ginger beef and orange beef.  Sweet, tangy and oh so yummy.  And oh so unhealthy.  Deep fried and full of sugar it’s something we have as an occasional treat.  But I love the flavours of both dishes so much that I decided to come up with my own recipe to combine them in an easy to make and not so unhealthy crock pot meal.  This is also the perfect recipe to use less expensive cuts of beef that end up very tender after hours of slow cooking.

  1. Something is wrong with the recipe. There is way too much orange juice concentrate and it never thickened up. 

    • Hi Deb. I've made the recipe a few times and have never had a problem. The corn starch thickens it up and the orange juice concentrate is pretty thick too.
