Molasses Asian Crockpot beef

Lately many Asian style recipes have come across my feed, they look so tasty with their rich brown sauces, topped with crisp, sharp green onions, I can see why they are so popular. I can almost taste them when I look at the pictures. I click on them and am saddened by how much refined sugar they contain, I might as well be eating a cupcake! 
Planning my meal plan for the week I brainstormed how I could cut down the refined sugar and this recipe was born. It still has sugar content but atleast it isn't refined. 
I could go on about honey and molasses supposed health benefits but I'm not going to, they are being used as a sweetner is this recipe. 
Enjoy and leave me feedback if you make it :)
