    I made this and served it over spinach and brown rice. Everyone loved it - I might cut down the ginger next time. - 5/23/08

  • I'll echo what another members said about the steak being surprisingly tough, even though it shreds easily. I think perhaps cooking it on high was a mistake for my particular crockpot. Meat was charred and potatoes mushy. May try it again on low. - 6/1/12

  • Not bad, tasted like pot roast with a sweet twist. Won't make it again. - 1/31/11

  • I made this with a few variations. I used low sodium chicken broth instead of beef. I eliminated the salt. Like others, I sliced the sweet potatoes. I also sliced the flank steak before putting it in the crock pot. The flank steak was tender and the dish was very flavorful.
    Thank you for sharing.
