Asian Beef Stew

This recipe was in the booklet that came with the cooker. My daughter works at an upscale restaurant and has very expensive food tastes. She loved it! 

Cut 3 lbs. of beef chuck into 1 inch cubes. Coat with a mixture of: 
  • 1/4 flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder 
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
Brown meat on all sides in 2 Tbs. oil, then place into crock pot. 

Saute in the same oil and then add to the pot:
  • 1 med. onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
Combine and add to pot:
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 Tbs. hoisin sauce (mine had plum in it)
  • 2 Tbs. ketchup
  • 1 Tbs. honey
Stir. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours. 

Stir in:
  • 1/2 lb snow peas (I used frozen)
  • 1 can sliced water chestnuts
Set on high, cover and cook for 20 more minutes. Serve with fried Chinese noodles.
