Louisa it is best to use a cut better than you would for stew/casserole due to the shorter cooking time of this dish. I’ve used rump steak and schnitzel before.

There is a reason everyone raves about this dish – its simply AWESOME. I followed Annette’s advice and used coconut rice. I didn’t have hoisin rice so used Oyster sauce. Cut chuck steak into chunks and cooked for 4 hours. it is now a family favourite. Thank you for posting it.

What beef cut is best to use?
Thanks louisa

I didn’t add the hoisin and did only 1 tsp of sesame oil with 1 tsp of rice bran oil (I find sesame oil overpowering sometimes). Added mushrooms about 45mins before end of cooking time. Just steamed the broccoli to add when dishing up (to make the dish a little ‘fresher’).
Improvised with a coconut rice recipe to go along with it – didn’t have jasmine rice, so used basmati. Regardless – was so good and was the perfect complement to the sauce.

I urge you to try coconut rice with this recipe – was so flippin’ amazing!

Eleventy billion out of 100.👌

When doing this as a dump bag does the broccoli still need to be added in the last 30 mins?

Nikki has replied above to say yes there is she believes 🙂

Tereerose I have used schnitzel and rump steak. Because of the shorter cooking time you need a better cut than stew/casserole. I don’t precook the meat.

This was a big hit with family. Because I didn’t have much broccoli I also added some cauliflower. Thickened with instant potato and served with hokkien noodles

Excellent and easy recipe. Especially when you have two fussy kids and some family days are just so busy.
Highly recommend this dish!!!!

You missed an ingredient – a Piece of Fresh Bread to mop up that amazing sauce 🙂
I only used 1/8th cup of sugar for our personal taste and we still absolutely loved it.
Thanks for a really lovely dish

Tried this for the first time tonight, I did substitute the soy sauce with coconut aminos sauce and omit the hoisin sauce due to allergies.
Both girls commented “we have had this before”, yes from the local Chinese restaurant, think that is a win 🙂
