Thanks to ready-made stir-fry sauce and your slow cooker, this Asian classic has never been easier!


  • 2 pounds boneless beef sirloin steak, cut 1 inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 8 - ounce can sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 1 4 1/2 - ounce jar (drained weight) whole mushrooms, drained
  • 1 12 - ounce jar stir-fry sauce
  • 1 tablespoon quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1 16 - ounce package loose-pack frozen broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots
  • 1/3 cup cashews
  • 12 ounces dried lo mein noodles
