Slow-Cooker Asian Shredded Beef

If you're feeling restless for travel but short on funds, why not try and do a little culinary exploring with your slow cooker instead? This tangy Asian-inspired noodle bowl tastes better than any take out and comes together in a snap: simply mix some beef broth with a few sauces—sweet hoisin, umami-rich soy sauce, and rice vinegar—and stir in some ginger and crushed red pepper. Then add the beef, cover, and cook on low while you get on with your day-to-day. Then, the magic: when you come back, all you’ll have to do is skim off the fat and shred the meat. Serve the mixture over chewy rice noodles, peppery thinly-sliced radishes, and chopped scallions for a bright, colorful international meal—without the stress of flying.
