Slow Cooker Chinese Beef

By | December 13, 2011

I had some beef strips that needed using last week but due to being busy decorating the kitchen wanted to do something in the slow cooker.  I fancied something chinese style so a quick browse of the internet for inspiration and I came up with my own chinese beef recipe.


  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 500g beef strips
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Small piece of ginger, grated
  • 1 chilli, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 tsp chinese five spice
  • 3 tbsp Shaoxing rice wine or dry sherry
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 350ml beef stock


  1. Heat the oil in a pan.  Toss the beef strips in the flour then brown the meat.
  2. Add the garlic, ginger and chilli to the pan and cook for 2-3 mins before adding the five spice and stirring for a further minute.
  3. Add the rice wine/ sherry to the pan and stir well.
  4. Tip the beef mix into the slow cooker then add the beef stock and soy sauce.
  5. Cook for around 4 hours on high or 6-7 hours on low.  Serve with rice or noodles.
