Asian Pot Roast

Oh have I got a good recipe for you... This Asian Pot Roast is one of our new favorites. I served the beef over Trader Joe’s Vegetable Fried Rice (or whatever veggie mix you prefer) for a seriously delicious meal. You’re going to lock in all the flavor with searing- then slow cook for 8 hours with the best sweet, savory, spicy flavor mix you can imagine. The most enjoyable part about this recipe is that you only spend 10 actual minutes cooking- but it tastes like you worked all day. Enjoy!

Asian Pot Roast

prep time: cook time: total time:


Asian Pot Roast
  • 2 Lbs. Beef Chuck Cubes
  • 1 Tablespoon Everything But The Bagel Seasoning ( If you don't have a Trader Joe's sub for Sesame Seeds, Poppy Seeds, and Garlic Salt.)
  • 1 Teaspoon Powdered Red Pepper 
  • 1 Teaspoon Onion Salt
  • 2 Teaspoons Cracked Pepper 
  • 2 Tablespoons of Honey
  • 1/4 Cup General Tso Sauce 
  • 1/4 Cup of Soyaki Sauce
  • 1/4 Cup of Hoisin
  • 1 Cup of Water 
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 12 Oz. Shredded Carrot and Broccoli Slaw 
  • I served with Wontons and Trader Joe's Fried Rice (Optional) 


Asian Pot Roast
  1. You will begin by combining all spices into a bowl and mix well. Next, in an Instant Pot or skillet, bring Olive Oil to medium heat. 
  2. Next you will coat each piece of meat in seasoning and then sear in skillet or Instant Pot. Rotate meat so all sides are covered. Once the meat is seared on all sides (this locks in flavor), then turn off the heat.
  3. If you are using a skillet, place meat crockpot. You will then drizzle Honey over your meat (also sprinkle any left-over seasoning). Then begin adding in the General Tso, Soyaki, Hoisin, and Water. Lastly, add in the Broccoli and Carrot Slaw. Stir well, then set crockpot on medium heat for 8 hours. 
  4. Begin plating- I served topped with everything but the bagel seasoning along  with fried rice and wontons.

Asian Sirloin Lettuce Wraps

I will be the first to admit it, I have 5 meals that stay in our dinner rotation...Spaghetti, Bar-B-Que Chicken, Tacos, Pizza... you get it. Last year I made a resolution to cook one new meal a week. I've brought some new recipes into the fold,and now it is time to share a few of these on the blog. 

My friend Kristen loves Asian food! She has hinted about needing some Asian recipes on Huckleberry Collective, so without further ado, Asian Sirloin Lettuce Wraps. These lettuce wraps were a total success! So, I am dedicating this post to my girl KM! These are yummy, and a 5 on a difficult level from 1-10. I highly recommend these as a week-night rotation dinner!

  • 1-2 lbs Sirloin Steak sliced (you can ask the butcher for this.)
  • 3 tablespoons Soyaki sauce from Trader Joe’s (you can sub soy sauce and teriyaki)
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon Cracked Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Avocado oil

Veggie Mixture-

  • 1 Tablespoon Avocado oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Hoisin Sauce
  • 1 Cup of Diced Water Chestnuts
  • 1 Cup of Baby Bella Mushrooms
  • ½ Cup of Roasted Red Pepper
  • 1 Large Green Bell Pepper Chopped
  • 1 Large Yellow Bell Pepper Chopped
  • ½ Cup of Scallions Diced
  • 12-15 Lettuce Leaves (You can use any leafy lettuce. I used Green leaf, but other options are, romaine, Boston or butter lettuce.)



  1. Marinate the steak in your soyaki sauce for at least 2 hours before you start cooking.
  2. Prep all of your veggies and set aside.
  3. Bring a large frying pan to medium heat with avocado oil. Once sizzling add in the steak portion. Sprinkle in the garlic salt and cracked pepper over steak. Cook steak in the skillet for 10-15 minutes or until edges caramelize.
  4. In a separate skillet begin sautéing your chopped veggies at medium meat (water chestnuts, bell peppers, roasted red peppers, mushrooms and scallions) in avocado oil. Pour in Hoisin sauce and cook until veggies are soft but not soggy.
  5. Wash Lettuce leaves and dry with paper towel. Spoon in veggie mixture, then top with steak mixture. Have soyaki or general tso sauce available for dipping.  Enjoy!
