Slow Cooker Chinese Style Beef
If you are missing Chinese food due to being healthier this New Year then this is for you!
This actually tastes so much better than over MSG’d takeaways.
Make sure you use extra lean beef steak, I got mine in Sainsburys (it was a 400g pack) so I added an extra onion and pepper to pack it out.
Healthier food, never has to be boring or tasteless!
