700 g of braising beef (cut into chunks and all visible fat removed)
1 tablespoon of cornstarch (1.5 syns)
1 teaspoon of sesame oil (2 syns)
1 onion, roughly chopped
4 spring onions, chopped
3 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 red chili, finely chopped
1 green pepper, roughly chopped
200 g of mushrooms, sliced
approx. 1 tablespoon of freshly grated ginger
4-5 tablespoons of dark soy sauce
1/4 cup of light soy sauce
3 tablespoons of rice vinegar
1/2 cup of water
1 teaspoon of sugar (1.5 syns)
black pepper to season
some freshly chopped spring onion to decorate
1. Place the meat in a zip lock bag, add the cornstarch and give a good shake to evenly coat (the cornstarch is what will lightly thicken the sauce as it cooks).
2. Add the meat and all other ingredients to the slow cooker, set to the low (8 hour) cooking time and viola, this lovely delicious dish will be ready to serve by dinner time. Top with some freshly chopped spring onion.
3. Serve with some quickly stir fried fresh veggies of your choice and sticky jasmine rice.
