Slow Cooker Korean Beef Lettuce Wraps with Sesame Cucumber Salad

Standard

The cool crispness of the lettuce & cucumber salad paired with the sweet & spicy beef is absolutely amazing! I seriously could not believe how flavorful & delicious this beef came out! I couldn’t stop snitching pieces of it as I was shredding it! You can obviously use a leaner cut of meat, but they are just so darn expensive!
