Slow Cooker Korean Beef is super tender and takes just a few minutes to prep. Just dump a chuck roast and a simple Korean-inspired sauce in the crock pot to make a delicious shredded beef. 


Beef and Garnishes

  • 3 pound boneless beef chuck roast
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 2-3 green onions, thinly sliced

Korean-Inspired Sauce

  • 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, light or dark
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced or grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha, adjust to spice preference


  1. Mix Sauce. In a bowl, whisk together the sauce ingredients.
  2. Add to Slow Cooker. Place the chuck roast in a large slow cooker. Pour over sauce and flip chuck roast over a few times so it gets a little coated on all sides.
  3. Cook. Cover slow cooker and cook on low for 7-8 hours. You can also cook on high for 4 hours, but I prefer low as it becomes more tender. The beef is done when it is tender and easily shreds with two forks.
  4. Serve. Shred chuck roast with two forks and toss with some or all of the sauce in the slow cooker. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, green onions, and serve.


To Decrease Cook Time - The cook time is long (7-8 hours) in order to really make the chuck roast tender. If you want to decrease the cook time, you can cut the chuck roast into a few big chunks.

 Leftovers - Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 4 days.
