Sweet meats!  With the ginger, garlic and soy sauce, you might remember a Chinese meal.  Very tasty!  Very easy to prepare and then place in the slow-cooker and 2 or 3 hours later, dinner is served!  Sometimes easy, simple meals are the ones that often get you rave reviews.  My husband really appreciated his meal.  It is definitely because the steak is so tender and flavorful.  This sweet and spicy meat with plenty of sauce will delight.  You could serve it with cauli-rice, if desired.  


No need to first brown the steak.  Now that greatly simplifies things and makes it real quick to get this meal going in the slow-cooker.
