Beef in Ginger and Soy-Sauce

Slow Cooker

I originally intended to make Mongolian beef but I had a few missing ingredients so after some experimentation I produced this which was rather good. It is quite a rich dish best served with rice and vegetables. It can be cooked in batches and frozen if required.


  • Makes: 4 portions

  • Preparation time: 15 minutes

  • Cooking time: 5-6 Hours


  • 350-500g diced beef

  • 1 Onion

  • 3 Cloves Garlic

  • 1 Large Carrot

  • 1/2 Cup Soy Sauce

  • 1/4 Cup Water

  • 1/4 Cup Cornflour
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1cm Fresh Ginger Root


  1. Peel and finely chop the onion, ginger & and garlic

  2. Add all ingredients except the beef, carrots and cornflour to the slow cooker and mix thoroughly to disolve the sugar

  3. Coat the beef in the cornflour, this is best achieved by adding both to a bag and shaking), add to the slow cooker

  4. Peel the carrot and cut into short thin batons, add to the slow cooker

  5. Stir to ensure that the beef and carrots are fully coated in the sauce

  6. Cook for 5-6 hours on low (until beef in tender)
