Slow-Cooked Mongolian Beef

March 13

Go into any Chinese restaurant and you’ll find the always popular Mongolian beef on the menu. There are only a handful of ingredients, yet it packs a punch in the flavor category.  My version is great when you’re in a rush as it only takes 15 minutes to prep before going into the slow-cooker or casserole pot. Being the beef is the main ingredient, I recommend finding the highest quality you can. Enjoy!

Method
  1. Place the sliced steak pieces in a bowl with the corn flour and mix until the meat is well coated.
  2. Add the meat along with the remaining ingredients to a slow cooker, stirring to combine completely. Cook on high for 3 hours or on low for 5 hours until the meat is tender and the sauce has reduced slightly.
  3. If cooking in a large casserole, heat over a high heat and add the sesame oil, fry the steak pieces until browned before adding the garlic, chilli and ginger and frying for a further minute or so. Add the remaining ingredients and stir through until completely coated. Lower the heat and place a lid on top and continue to cook for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until the sauce has reduced and the meat is tender.
  4. Serve the Mongolian beef with noodles & cucumber slices.
