Spiced Anise and Ginger Beef

As a one pot dish, this is a great recipe. Very easy to put together and have ready for a late day meal. We paired this flat iron steak with a Spicy Cabbage Slaw for a little bit of heat. Keep the calories and fat in check by using a very lean beef - the slow cooker will ensure the meat is tender by the time dinner is served. The aroma and flavor of the anise along with ginger give this dish a delightful taste.
