Slow Cooker Sweet And Sour Beef With Veggies

I have tried many, many different recipes for sweet and sour beef. After much trial and error, I combined many different recipes to finally settle on our favorite. It’s easy, ingredients are simple, and as a bonus, it is prepared in a slow cooker.

Now of course you can change up the vegetables to your families liking and you could even change up the beef for chicken or pork I would imagine. So give it a try and see what you think.

Slow Cooker Sweet And Sour Beef With Veggies

1.5- 2 lbs. beef stew meat

1/2 large onion-chunked

3 large carrots-sliced

1 large green pepper-chunked

broccoli- 1 small head

2 celery stalks-chunked


Sweet and Sour Sauce

1 tsp. salt

6 Tbsp. vinegar

4 Tbsp. sugar

2 tsp. chili powder

1/2 c. molasses

1-15 oz can tomato sauce


Take your slow cooker and set it to the low setting. Spray it with non stick cooking spray.

Lay your root vegetables first….carrots and onions. Top these with the beef. Lay the remaining vegetables on top of the beef.

Mix the sweet and sour ingredients together in a separate bowl and pour this over the beef and veggies.

Cover and cook for 7-8 hrs.

Serve over rice for a delicious, at home, sweet and sour meal.
