Slow Cooker Korean BBQ Beef

When I used to live in New York, I would frequent K-town for their extra crispy, flavorful, Korean fried chicken and their famous Korean BBQ beef. Since I can no longer jump in a cab and have these divine dishes at my fingertips, I figured the next best thing would be to try to re-create them in my slow cooker. This Korean BBQ might not be as good as a K-town original, but it is definitely a close second. Serve this shredded beef over rice and garnish with toasted sesame seeds and fresh green onions if desired.
