FAQs AND Questions

 

What is the best ground beef for this recipe?

 

Advertisement
  • To avoid making our Hawaiian beef dish overly greasy, we chose 80/20 lean ground beef. On the other hand, others claim that using 70/30 has better flavor. If you do, be careful to completely drain the grease to avoid having an oil-covered supper.

 

Why do people add vinegar to beef?

 

Advertisement
  • In addition to aiding in the tenderization of the beef, vinegar may add a tangy tang that enhances the flavor of dishes like this one. To make it more tender, the vinegar’s acid breaks down the proteins. The liquid will then be trapped by the proteins’ bonding together, giving the food a more juicy feel.

 

How do I make slow cooker Hawaiian beef from scratch?

  • Sear the meat: To begin, stir the beef, chili flakes, and black pepper in a large pan on medium-high for about five minutes or until browned. 

 

  • Cook in the flavorings: After, stir in the butter, garlic, and ginger and cook for two minutes over medium. Be sure to drain the grease.
