  1. 1. Place the sliced steak pieces in a bowl with the corn flour and mix until the meat is well coated.
  2. 2. Add the meat along with the remaining ingredients to a slow cooker, stirring to combine completely. Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8-10 hours until the meat is tender and the sauce has reduced slightly.
  3. 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.
