Servings 6


  • 5-6L slow cooker


  • 1 kg beef mince
  • 1 large onion, fine diced
  • 1 large carrot, cut into thin sticks or fine diced
  • 1 heaped tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 tsp curry powder (I use Keens brand)
  • 1.5 cups liquid beef stock
  • 1/4 green cabbage, thin sliced/shredded
  • 2 pkts Oriental flavoured 2min noodles (I use Maggi brand)


  • Add all ingredients, except the 2min noodles, to the slow cooker. Mix gently to combine.
  • Cook on low for 6hrs
  • In the final 15mins of cooking take your 2 packets of noodles, break each in half and sit on top of the chow mein in slow cooker.
    Sprinkle flavour sachets over the noodles. Pour 200ml boiling water over noodles & push them down to submerge them into the meat mix & cover them.
    Come back after 15mins & mix them throughout the mixture to disperse.
  • Serve with optional crusty buttered bread on the side or just on it's own.
    Curry taste in this dish is not spicy/hot, so all ages can enjoy this meal. If you prefer more bite, by all means add more for your family's tastes 🙂
