Hello Julie, There never seems to be enough sauce to put over the rice. If I double the sauce should it be cooked longer? Do you think it would make a difference at all?
I don’t think the cooking time would be affected if you doubled the sauce. If you give that a try, please let me know how it turns out for you!
Hi Julia, I’ve never cooked with flank steak before, does it turn out very tender? Thank you!! it looks delicious
I do think it comes out quite tender. Make sure to slice the beef thinly against the grain — that helps with tenderness!
I would strongly recommend the low sodium soy sauce. Also will make this dish again but may increase the amount of brown sugar a little.
Can i use beef bone broth instead?
I haven’t using that with this recipe, but should be OK.
Was the flank steak cooked before being added to the crock pot?
The flank steak is not cooked.
Hello I didn’t have any brown sugar but I used raw sugar that is granulated. I hope it comes out tasting the same.
It shouldn’t make a huge difference. Hope you enjoyed it 🙂
If I wanted to double the recipe would I need to double me the time cooked or cook for the same amount of time? I’ve made this a few times and love it but we never have enough leftover and we love leftovers!!! 🙂
Hi Rose! If you double the recipe, you should keep the cooking time the same. Let me know if you have other questions!
How do you make the sauce without the meat?
what are the measurements for six servings?
For 6 servings, you should double the ingredients.
How big is your crockpot for this?
I use a 6 quart slow cooker.
Julia, will it be more tender if I cook it on low?
Hi Denise, I haven’t tried cooking it on low before, so I’m not sure if it will be more tender. If you give it a try, let me know!
How long do you think it should cook if the crockpot were set to Low?
Hi Kimm, you can double the time if you are setting it to low.
Would this work if I cooked on low for 4 hours? Making it for dinner tonight!!
Hi Katie! Yes, that should be fine.
Is the calorie count per serving??
Hi Alma! Yes, it’s per serving.
I’m trying to make this for 15 teenagers. Recommendations? Would I REALLY need 10 lbs. of steak??
The recipe calls for 1.5 pounds of flank steak and it makes 3 servings. So if you need to make 15 servings, then you only need 7.5 pounds of steak.
Making this right now… I’ll let you know how yummy it is !!
My husband & daughter can’t wait for dinner… lol
Haha hope you guys love it!!
Have you ever done this recipe ahead of time and froze it?
Hi Brooke! I think that would be fine, but I haven’t tried it. Let me know if you do!
This is the second time for me making this.
My family loves it!
Ow. I added the garlic in the beginning. Will that hurt?
That’s totally fine! Either way will work 🙂
Could I cook longer in the crock pot? Maybe 6-8 hours to make the meat more tender.
You can cook the beef longer if you’d like, but 6–8 hours sounds way too long to me. You don’t want the beef to be falling apart and shredded.
it was so simple and so good thanks for sharing
Thanks for sharing.
Hi the video for this show sesame oil but the recipe doesn’t, could you let me know whether to include it?
I have done it both ways, and didn’t taste much of a difference, so I no longer add sesame oil. Hope that helps! 🙂
Julia, your beef recipes look always delicious and so tender! My mouth is watering here 🙂
Thanks Julia! 🙂
What a great reminder to make a pot of a healthy reach for meal. Done!-Laurel
