  1. In a large skillet, heat cooking oil over medium heat.
  2. Toss in minced garlic, and cook 2-3 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  3. Add chopped ginger, cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add beef, and stir often, cooking until meat is just browned, about 5 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, mix both packages of gravy with 3 cup water and bring to a boil in a saucepan over medium high heat.

  7. Once meat is browned, transfer entire pan to slow cooker, including juices.
  8. Top with gravy mixture, coating evenly.
  9. Cook for 7-8 hours on low setting.
  10. I served this over mashed potatoes because it's all we had in the house, but it would work well with egg noodles aswell.
