I changed up the recipe slightly and next time I will make sure I have some fresh sweet onion to add instead of the minced. We served this over hot steamed rice, but a side of broccoli, carrots, or fresh string beans would be good too. The great thing about this recipe other than the "dump, mix, cook" method (which I LOVE) is that it only takes 3-4 to cook. Sometimes I forget to make my crock pot meal early and then I have to find something else to make or make it on the stove...I hate when that happens. So this is a nice one because I started it at 3:30 and we ate at 7...not bad for a crock pot meal ;)
Don't be scared of all the ingredients...it really is super simple!

1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes ***more if you like spice or less if you're like my husband ;)

- Combine meat and cornstarch in a Ziploc bag. Shake around to coat meat thoroughly
