Take out your slow cooker and begin adding ingredients. At this time, you can toss in vegetable oil, garlic, ginger, water, soy sauce, brown sugar, Sriracha, and chili flakes. Use a spoon to stir and combine all of the ingredients together. “The aromatics of garlic and ginger add an extra layer of flavor, which are staples in Asian cooking,” Dalton notes. And if you’re a big spice lover? “Add more chili flakes — or even chili peppers,” Dalton suggests.
The last thing you need to add is the flank steak coated in cornstarch and the carrots. Once again, stir to combine well.
