Ingredients Needed to Make the Tastiest Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Beef
Sesame Oil – Sesame oil is a popular cooking oil with a nutty taste. It can be used to sear steaks, giving them a delicious flavor.
Stew Beef – Stew beef is a type of beef that comes in small pieces in the grocery store. It’s usually made of chuck or round beef, which is inexpensive. To make it tender, it needs to be cooked slowly.
Garlic – You need garlic for honey garlic. Fresh garlic is best, but if you don’t have it, you can use garlic that is minced and packed in oil. It’s a good idea to keep this in your kitchen as a backup.
Honey – Honey is what makes the sauce sweet and sticky. It also gives the sauce its unique texture.
Ketchup – I love using ketchup to give food a zesty taste without it being too strong. It has a great flavor.
Dried Oregano – Use just a pinch of dried oregano in your honey garlic steak bites for a delicious flavor boost. This simple herb can add complexity without making the dish too complex.
Garnish – Add sesame seeds and fresh parsley or green onions to the top of the food to give it a decorative finish — this is called garnishing.
Cornstarch – If you want the sauce to be thicker, you can add cornstarch.

1) A variety of ingredients are needed to make slow-cooker honey-garlic beef.
2) The beef should be browned before adding it to the slow cooker.
3) The dish is cooked on low heat for 8 hours and served with rice or noodles
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 2 pounds (960 g) stew beef, cubed
- 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
- 1/2 cup (125 ml) honey
- 1/2 cup (125 ml) ketchup
- 1/2 cup (125 ml) low-sodium soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- sesame seeds for garnish
- 1 tablespoon cornstrach, if needed
In a large nonstick skillet, heat the sesame oil over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook until browned on all sides. I'm not cooking the meat all the way through; I'm just browning it to keep the flavor inside.
Remove seared beef from the skillet and transfer it to a slow cooker. Combine the garlic, honey, ketchup, soy sauce, and oregano in a medium mixing bowl. Stir well and pour the mixture over the meat in the cooker.
Cover the pot and cook on a low-heat setting for 4-5 hours, or until the beef is tender. If the beef isn’t getting tender and the sauce is too thick, add half a cup of water. If the sauce is too thin, mix 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with ¼ cup of water. Stir it into the sauce before you serve it.
Top off your dish with sesame seeds, parsley, or scallions to make it extra tasty. Serve it with some delicious rice and you're all set!
