asian beef stew by adelle

2 onions, cut into 1/4 inch slices
1 1/2 pounds round steak, sliced thin across the grain
2 ribs celery, sliced
2 carrots, peeled and sliced
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 cup orange juice
1 cup beef broth
1/3 cup hoisin sauce (i found this with the teriyaki sauce at kroger)
2 tablespoons cornstarch

place onions, beef, celery, carrots, and mushrooms in crockpot. combine orange juice, broth, hoisin sauce, and cornstarch in small bowl. pour into crockpot. cover; cook on high for 5 hours or until beef is tender.

if you want to add peas, get 1 cup of frozen peas, stir into crockpot after the 5 hours and cook 20 minutes longer or until peas are tender.

if you like it a bit spicy you can also add 1 to 2 teaspoons chinese 5 spice powder or curry powder to the orange juice mixture.

serve over broth simmered white rice.
