Slow Cooker Ginger Beef

Well everyone, my first recipe post!! Ahh I’m so excited! It’s been quite a while since I’ve shared anything on this blog but I wanted to start it up again and have a place to share recipes with y’all (and of course the happenings and adventures of life!).

So here it goes!

I LOVE ginger beef! It’s always been a must when we order Chinese food or go out to eat! This past year of being in university and learning how to live on a tight budget has cause me to become even more adventurous and create some of these favourite recipes of mine at home! This recipe is super simple and so perfect for the days where you know you just won’t have time in the evening to make supper!
