Slow cooked Chinese beef

Another I’ve had my eye on for a while. I will do this in the slow cooker.

750g braising beef cut into pieces

1 bunch spring onions

3 cloves garlic

root ginger, thumb sized, grated

2 sliced red chillies

2 tsp Chinese 5-spice

1 star anise

2 tbsp. brown sugar

4 tbsp. dry sherry (or rice wine)

2 tbsp. soy sauce

shredded greens and rice to serve

360 calories without rice


Put the ingredients in the slow cooker with 200ml water (save a little spring onion and chilli)

Cook on low all day

To thicken the sauce, boil on hob for a bit

Sprinkle the rest of the spring onion and chilli and serve with rice and greens
