800g Lean Diced Braising Steak (Chicken works a treat too!)
2 tbsp Cornflour
1 tsp Coconut Oil
1 Star Anise
2 Shallots, sliced
3 Garlic Cloves, finely chopped
Ginger, about thumb size, finely chopped
1 tbsp Dried Chilli Flakes (But I love chilli flakes)
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
100ml Beef Stock
60ml Soy Sauce
1 tbsp Honey
1 tsp Dried Coriander
1 tsp Pepper (I use a 5 blend pepper)
Add 1/2 the coconut oil to a pan and brown the beef, in batches if necessary. Add to slow cooker.
Add remaining oil, sliced shallots, garlic, ginger and star anise to the pan till nicely coated and slightly coloured. Add to the slow cooker.
In a jug mix together the soy sauce, cornflour, cinnamon, coriander, stock, honey and chilli flakes. Mix it all together then pour over the beef.
Stir, cover and wait 4 to 5* hours on low until melt in the mouth tender and your kitchen smells amazing..
I love mine served on some basmati/jasmine rice and with any veg I have in the fridge. Bean sprouts, baby corn, greens etc.
If you have any sauce left, freeze it and use as a quick stock for a mid week meal. Goes great with chicken and steamed vegetables
