I was soooo looking forward to this dish as itโ€™s one of my favourites. However it turned out too salty for my taste. Upon reading further reviews looks like Iโ€™ll try a salt reduced soy sauce next time and half the amount.. see if that changes for me. However the other half reallt enjoyed his! He does however enjoy salty tastes. Iโ€™wikk keep trying until I prefect it though. Thankyou

Loved this recipe. So easy. Will make again for the family

Beef strips will work ๐Ÿ™‚

I am using up meat in my freezer. I have beef stir fry strips. Can this be used or do I need to buy the proper cut of meat. Thank you


July 4, 2022

Love this recipe, so easy, I add finely sliced carrots too. If I donโ€™t have spring onions, then just add an extra normal onion.


June 29, 2022

How long would this take on high?


June 29, 2022

Easiest recipe to make, I used this to meal prep for hubbys work lunches and add rice to it.


May 31, 2022

So delicious!! So much flavour


May 26, 2022

This was phenomenal, really delicious. Easy to follow directions & a tasty dish. The family said it tasted like real Chinese takeaway. Thanks for this one! Highly recommend


May 14, 2022

Delicious. I doubled the sauce but used 1/4 soy sauce and 1/4 sweet soy sauce and only 1/4 cup of brown sugar. Added red capsicum and carrot sticks into the slow cooker for the last 40 minutes, and added steam broccoli florets when serving. Will definitely be making again.


March 23, 2022

This recipe is delicious I doubled sauce garlic and ginger and sauce but would t double the sugar next time itโ€™s still delicious but only needs just over 1/4 cup brown sugar when you double sauce recipe this is going to be one of my favourites moving forward my teenage girls and husband loved it ๐Ÿ˜‹


September 24, 2021

Fantastic recipe. I use salt reduced soy. I also but the coles beef strips.


August 26, 2021

Love this recipe. I add some capsicum and celery to mine just for some extra flavour.

Vicki Stebbins

July 2, 2021

I loved the recipe but ended up with too much corn flour which made it ‘gluggy’. My intention was to make this for a CWA event for 40 and I decided the slicing was a pain for so many, instead I then did the recipe (doubled and used beef stock instead of water) and did a slow cook pulled beef, it worked really well and will be far easier to do for 40 than all the slicing.


June 20, 2021

I halved the sugar and tripled the water, added, carrot, capsicum and bamboo shoots. At teh end I stirred in a packet of hokkien noodles and served with bok choy. I would do it again.

Tammy Gill

June 13, 2021

OMG super delicious!!
Next time I will double the sauce (I love sauce)
This to me taste like what you would buy in a Chinese takeaway restaurant!!
Definitely will be on our dinner list!!
Thank you


April 28, 2021

Love this dish! Flavour is amazing and the meat so tender.

Lee Finch

April 16, 2021

I have made this many many times. It was on the roster again this week. Quite salty but I love salt so no probs there for me. Would be less salty if you used salt reduced soy sauce. I have found that thickening at the end with the cornflour is better than at the beginning (putting your beef strips in a bag with the corn four ) as it tends to go too thick whilst cooking and I have to water it down hence losing a bit of the Mongolian flavour. I absolutely recommend this recipe. It is a firm favourite in our house ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Tracy Warner

Delish ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹


January 15, 2021

We make this every few months, I double the sauce and add grated carrot and and other veg I have. Definitely recommend

Lauren Spackman

January 15, 2021

๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ perfect, way better than store bought.

Many don’t pre brown … it would fit in any size really but the bigger ones like 6L, being emptier, will cook a little faster than the 3L range


January 6, 2021

Just wondering… what size slow cooker is best for this recipe? And is it essential to brown the meat first or can it go straight into the slow cooker (I have very limited kitchen space)? Thanks!!


January 5, 2021

5 stars from me! Whole family loved it including my 18month old who ate 3 serves!


January 4, 2021

This is the best Mongolian beef ever!!! My fiancรฉ fell in love with me a little more when I made it hehe so so delicious I doubled the meat and did 1/3 cup instead of 1/4 cup of Ingredients and it was perfect! Put it on top of some basmati rice and sprinkled with sesame seeds my fiancรฉ is already requesting I make it again ๐Ÿ™‚


December 27, 2020

Made this tonight for the first time and it was a massive hit! I doubled the meat and sauce ingredients except for the sugar. Prefect! My husband said itโ€™s better than what he gets at the Chinese restaurant.

Lyn Douglass

Yum. So flavoursome & tasty. Delicious

Yes you can use diced ๐Ÿ™‚

Leah Haskell

December 8, 2020

I only have diced rump steak would you tweak the recipe at all to accommodate? I dont want to slice up the meat anymore….


October 5, 2020

Loved it. Both hubby and 2 year old smashed it. Served it with the fried rice for baby slow cooker and was perfect. I did it with gravy beef will have to try rump next time.

Anita Hill

September 18, 2020

Made it for the first time yesterday and although it was nice and was eaten by every one , even the fussy 2 year old,
I found it incredibly sweet.
I followed the recipe exactly but ended up adding some rice wine vinegar for some acidity
I will make it again but will change things around so its not so sweet.


September 17, 2020

Such a fabulous recipe. I followed the recipe, but did double everything and use shin instead. I wasnโ€™t sure how the shin would go, but itโ€™s pretty good. I would use something else next time. I think this will become a favourite in my house .

Melissa pegg

September 16, 2020

Love doing this recipe. Easy to do, all the family love it and a regular meal in our household

Zoe Hague

August 28, 2020

Absolutely delicious, tweaked it a little bit by making my own hoisin sauce as I cant have gluten and was a hit with the family

Jillian Turner

August 23, 2020

Beautiful. I used strips of rump steak & added frozen winter veggies an hour before the end.

Leanne Clarke

Loved this, a big hit with my teenage son and husband

Shauna Davis

Patricia Sauer

July 26, 2020

Very nice

Bec Uziel

July 15, 2020

Soooooooo delicious! I used 900gm blade steak & doubled the sauce recipe.
I added sliced yellow zucchini & baby broccoli for the last hour & stirred in 2 packs of hokkien noodles at the end.
Enough left over for dinner tonight as well.


June 29, 2020

A+ was absolutely delicious
Used rump steak, only because it was cheaper than Chuck steak, was so tender and flavoursome. I added in last 10 min bag of frozen winter veggies that I briefly zapped in microwave first.
Had no onions but wasnt fussed, will be new weekly favourite.


June 13, 2020

I made this tonight and it was delicious! Even my super fussy five year old wolfed it down. This is definitely going on the weekly menu.


June 10, 2020

Made this exactly as per the recipe, after reading all the fantastic reviews – thought it was average. Not flavourful & would not make again.


June 10, 2020

Mongolian beef so yummy and full of flavour. I didn’t have spring onion and added mushrooms. Comments went from what’s this to more please. Definite winner.


June 9, 2020

I tried this for the first time the other day and it was so yummy!!
It was a hit with everyone in my house!
I served it with rice.
Next time i make it im going to add diced red capsicum, red onion & zuchinni towards the end of the cooking time for my veg.


May 31, 2020

Delicious and easy! My 2 favourite things about slow cooking ๐Ÿ˜

Gilda Turner

May 25, 2020

I made this for the first time and it was absolutely delicious – a real winner with my son and husband too! I added sliced red capsicum and broccolini in the bottom of the slow cooker before adding the meat….very nice

Megan Clavey

May 25, 2020

This recipe is amazing i changed up the amount of the sauces because I had a little extra meat and it still turned out yum.
Will definitely make this again when I have family over ๐Ÿ™‚


May 16, 2020

Delicious! Worked beautifully first time which is an achievement for me ๐Ÿ˜œ

Natalie Dodds

May 15, 2020

This is so yum! In fact, every recipe I cook off this site is a winner! I served it with jasmine rice and steamed carrot and green beans. My Daughter asked me to make again sooner rather than later. Would love to try it with lamb strips or chicken strips too.

Belinda B

May 13, 2020

Despite being one of the most popular recipes in this group, I hadnโ€™t yet tried the Mongolian beef. I prefer a โ€œChuck it all in and let it cook for 8 hoursโ€ slow cooker meal, and this is not one of those. But today I was at home and had the time to do the prep, and boy was it worth it!! I followed the recipe, but added chopped carrots and broccoli for the last hour, and the whole family (including lately fussy 6 year old) loved it. The smell of it as it cooked was amazing, and the flavour and texture were delectable! Will definitely be making it again.


May 11, 2020

My family loved this dish! I followed the recipe exactly, but threw in some shredded carrot because I had some in the fridge. I also used sliced blade steak because thatโ€™s what I had. Turned out so tender and delicious – just like from a Chinese restaurant!


May 7, 2020

Made it tonight. Definitely a keeper. Yummo

Rai Dietrich

May 7, 2020

Love this dish. Made it several times now. I donโ€™t measure Anything exactly but itโ€™s always lovely. Have used both flank or rump. I like to add some mixed veg towards the end of the cook. Really flavoursome and filling dish.

Lisa Bartlett

May 7, 2020

This was absolutely delicious, Im not a fan of ginger so didn’t use it but both my hubby, my 12yr old niece and I just loved it.


May 6, 2020

Holy moley wow, made this for the first time to and just yummmmmm. I added broccoli into the slow cooker and served with mash and other veg. Will definitely be making this one again.


May 4, 2020

Very tasty. Definitely needs veggies added. I added capsicum, zucchini, carrots, mushrooms and broccoli in the last 45 mins. The carrot didnโ€™t cook in time so maybe do without that next time or slightly steam first. Very flavoursome.


May 1, 2020

This is amazing, our meat just melted away in our mouth. Only con is the dish is really sweet. Will make again and adjust will chilli or less sugar.


May 1, 2020

Made it for the first time. We really enjoyed it but would leave out the ginger next time as we’re not huge ginger fans.


April 30, 2020

Really easy and tasted delicious. Will definitely be making this again.

Denise Redman

April 28, 2020

I cooked this last night. Absolutley to die for. just hubby and I and he ate and ate. Served with stir fried vegies. Will definately be on our list. Thank you


April 28, 2020

A tasty easy meal to make. Love the sauce & the meat is so tender. Minimal washing up because the plates are licked clean ๐Ÿคฃ


April 28, 2020

This is my favorite slow cooker recipe. I stir fried some snap peas, broccolini, mushroom, capsicum and garlic in a little sesame oil and stirred through the meat before serving on brown basmati rice, A family favourite now


April 27, 2020

OMG yum!
Made with stewing beef and added grated carrot and parsnip

Jan Dobson

March 6, 2020

Have made this a few times. Absolutely lovely dish. I make with Gluten Free Soy and Hoisin Sauce, so everyone can eat it. Instead of mixing meat and Cornflour in a bag I mix in a bowl, as I find it easier. Is a regular in the slow cooker ๐Ÿ˜Š

I’d add them in the last hour Janelle myself if the broccoli etc are largish florrets


February 29, 2020

Making this again tonight – always a favourite – but going with the common suggestion of vegetables at the end. Just wondering when โ€˜at the endโ€™ youโ€™ve added vegetables? Last hour, half hour? Iโ€™m adding cauliflower, broccoli and capsicum. TIA

Tracey Davies

February 15, 2020

Delish. Easy. Tasty.

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

February 15, 2020

We used a kilo of thin sliced beef strips. I also added 850g bag of Chinese stir fry veg in the last hour of cooking (and turned it to high during this last hour to account for the frozen veg). Absolutely delish served with Oriental rice


February 14, 2020

Delicious and so easy!


February 13, 2020

I made this with Rump steak so reduced the time. Added 1/4 cup Sweet chilli sauce and towards the end added carrot, cauliflower and broccoli. Served with rice and it was delicious. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜

Kristy Garner

January 29, 2020

Thanks Pauline. Will have a look. I might just try it myself next week and I will write a review. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve never tried that myself to be sure but if you scan the feedback here you may find someone else has ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Pauline, do you think splenda/steevia would work instead of brown sugar? Just trying to make it that little bit healthier.

Georgia Tippett

January 6, 2020

First time making this.
It was easy to make, super tasty ๐Ÿ˜‹
Will make again.


January 3, 2020

This is a family favourite. I don’t use the hoisin or the ginger ( family are not a fan of ginger). I made this last night and added broccoli, mushroom and capsicum to make it go a little further. I don’t brown my meat first, I just coat in cornflour and throw it in with the sauce and onion and garlic. Put the other vegies in towards the end, so as not to overcook them. Very, very yummy and super easy

Claudia Nulliah

January 2, 2020

This has to be made at least once a fortnight in our house by my daughters request l add capsicum & carrots ,we have it on our busy nights when no time to cook sooo good yummy

Tracey Davies

November 22, 2019

Nice one!
Master 11 fussy eater commented this can be added to his repetoir of eats!! A meal.of deliciousness ๐Ÿ˜‹


November 4, 2019

I donโ€™t know what happened but my sauce was like a thick chunky jelly. The more liquid I added the thicker it got. Also did not like the texture of the meat. The flavour was nice but I wouldnโ€™t make it again.


October 22, 2019

My partner and I cooked this together and it turned out to be absolutely perfect! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ We added ร—2 bags of Asian frozen veggies towards the end and served with rice, just stick to quantities and ingredients in recipe. Better than the food you’d buy from an asian restaurant/take-out store. Big fan, thank you for sharing! ๐Ÿ˜


October 7, 2019

This is just delicious!!! My parents came over for dinner and enjoyed it so much too.


October 3, 2019

Delicious ๐Ÿคค will definitely be on menu again
Thanks for the yum recipe


August 26, 2019

Love this recipe! I added extra veggies and served with brown rice. Delilah ๐Ÿ™‚


August 8, 2019

Made this last night but added 1 sliced red capsicum at the beginning along with 1tsp dried red chilli half way through and broccolini heads 10 mins before serving. It was good but I think it could do with a little less sugar in the recipe – without the chilli it may have been too sweet. The recipe doesn’t specify Light Soy or Dark Soy but I used 1/4 cup of light soy and added a splash of dark soy. A “dash” of sesame oil was for me was 3 splashes (I like the stuff). Served it up with additional sliced spring onions and a sprinkle of sesame seeds. We enjoyed it.

Kristie Corr

July 23, 2019

Love this! Great flavour. I found it went watery during cooking but it thickened after I cooked the last 30mins with the lid off. I added carrot, zucchini, broccoli, cauliflower, capsicum, onion, spring onions .. Iโ€™d probably just quickly stir fry them next time rather than cook them with the beef.. might stop the water.. and veggies wonโ€™t be too soft. The kids have asked for it again.. (so thatโ€™s a win) and I had left over to do meals for my mum.


July 21, 2019

Love this recipe! Easy to make, super tasty and the whole family enjoyed it (even super fussy miss 12) I stirred through blanched green beens, carrots and brocolli just before serving on a bed of rice. Will definitely become one of my regulars!


July 20, 2019

Delicious! I stirred a bag of frozen Asian vegetables in for the last half hour and it worked a treat. Will definitely do again. Oh, I was lazy and didnโ€™t pre cook/brown the meat. Just threw it all in.


July 3, 2019

So delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹ definitely will be making this again

Absolutely scrumptious!!!


June 22, 2019

Had this on during the week so dinner would be sorted. Teenage boys got in from school and thought theyโ€™d have a โ€œsnackโ€. They ate it all with bread! So dinner for 4 turned into an afternoon snack for 2. Iโ€™ve got no clue how it tasted but two teenage boys are requesting it again ASAP!


June 13, 2019

I made this on Monday night!!! was so delicious. I added 1 large chilli with some holes poked in it to release the heat only because we love a bit of spice. We also used oyster cut because there was not alot of options at Woolies. Was a huge hit!

Recipe states serves 4


May 19, 2019

If I stick to the recipe how many people will this feed

Julie Coulton

October 29, 2018

This turned out perfectly. The only change I mad was to add some sliced red capsicum about an hour before serving. Delicious.


October 15, 2018

Made this for my partner tonight, he loves Mongolian anything and absolutely loved this. I added stir fry vegies in the last half hour. Will try with lamb and chicken in future also. Big thumbs up from him ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ

Michelle Pfeiffer

October 3, 2018

I made this and meat was a little chewy. So next time I am going to velvet the meat first. What is velveting meat I hear some people are asking. Velveting meat is what is used in Chinese cooking. You rub bicarb sods over meat leave for about 10 15 minutes then make sure all bicarb is rinsed off thoroughly then cook your meat in Asian dish and you will get the same texture as what you get from a Chinese restaurant. Learnt this when I was cooking (apprentice)

Amanda Young

September 29, 2018

I had to double the ingredients as I’m feeding 5 ppl was very watery but tasted Devine I will make again as my taste buds were dancing ๐Ÿ˜ƒ


September 27, 2018

Instead of coating meat in cornflour would it still work if I velvet meat?

Michelle Watson

September 11, 2018

Made had this twice 1st on stove top 2nd time in slow cooker. 2nd time didn’t taste as good as the 2nd ๐Ÿ™. Think I might stick to stove top on this one.

I’d go 3-3.5hrs

Erika Manuela

August 11, 2018

If i cook this with rump steak, how long should i cook it for?? Thanks


August 6, 2018

OMG, AMAZEBALLS!!!!! hubby really liked it too. Definitely making again ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’š


August 6, 2018

I made this as one of 8 dishes for my 50th birthday party for 40 people. It was a definite hit.
My 19 yr old now wants to make it for himself.

That is all.

I believe lots do but not the soy sauce due to salt level

Leigh B

July 13, 2018

Made this for the first time this week. It was really, really good. I was pleasantly surprised that it was perfect – not too salty and not too sweet. I had to adjust quantities as I used more beef, but it all worked with the same proportions. I added carrot, capsicum and broccolini after 2 hours and then cooked them in for the remaining 2 hours. Added a little bit extra cornflour to thicken the sauce before serving. Definitely a winner. Thank You.

Louise Pomykala

July 9, 2018

Ooh this was delicious, even hubby commented how yummy it was.

Yum yum yum! I substituted sugar free maple syrup for the brown sugar and it tasted great. I was a but worried that it wouldn’t be sweet but it tasted just right.

Michelle knight Peipman

Omg, such a hit for my fussy partner, I cook it for guests and they always ask for the recipe. Seriously better than the Chinese shop, and no msg.

Sue Cooper

June 27, 2018

My first ever slow cooker fail unfortunately.
I followed recipe but it turned out so very salty and the meat was like pulled beef after just 2 hours on low.
I used rump steak so knew I needed to cook far less time … Iโ€™m thinking my sunbeam sear runs way too hot for this dish.
Iโ€™ll try it in my trusty old Kambrook ceramic next time and use light soy sauce instead of dark maybe?
Itโ€™s all about trial and error .. Iโ€™m still a huge fan of slow cooking ๐Ÿ˜Š


June 27, 2018

I made this last week for myself while my husband was away for work and was so impressed, I made it again last night so he could enjoy it too. He almost licked the bowl!
I’ve read a lot of comments asking if the hoisin sauce is essential to the recipe – personally I think it is. I tasted a tiny bit of the hoisin sauce while making the dish and this is where all the delicious spiciness comes from for sure.
Amazing dish. Will be on regular rotation. Just wish I could get my fussy kids to eat it!

Alysha Nichols

Made this and served it with homemade coconut rice! Was amazing, whole family loved it, will double the ingredients next time so we have more leftovers ๐Ÿ˜Š

Disappointing. After reading the reviews I was expecting something special, but to me and my family it tasted bland. May make again, but will definitely be modifying the recipe.

Janelle Levy

May 30, 2018

My eldest son requested we have this for the next 3 nights!! I added broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, red and green capsicum as well as some Singapore noodles as I didnโ€™t have any rice. So yummy! I had all empty bowls in my house – winner!

Karen McKay

May 30, 2018

This is a fantastic recipe. Made it exactly as the recipe states just added carrots at the beginning as well. Was absolutely brilliant. The family loved it and said it tasted just like Chinese shop bought. Served with rice but definitely a stayer in our house. Thankyou slowcookercentral

Rosanna Hetherington

May 29, 2018

Had the Mongolian last night and it was a win with everyone. Hubby thought it was close to Chinese shop taste and both kids ate it all no probs and my youngest is a picky eater who will at times take 2 hours to eat or fall asleep to get out of eating.


May 28, 2018

Dinner was Amazing! No shallots as I didn’t have any and ground ginger not fresh but soi good! We added thinly sliced carrot, zucchini and green capsicum in the last 30mins. Id probs double the sauce bext time as we love sauce โ™ฅ


May 1, 2018

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! New family favourite, even my fussy 4 year old loved it! Yum yum yum


April 16, 2018

With baby No. 3 due to arrive any day now, my slow cooker has become my savior! Husband gave it a thumbs up and I also got a “Thank you – that was nice”.


March 28, 2018

This dish was so tasty!! I found it a bit sweet for our likings so will half the brown sugar next time. Apart from that beautiful…full of flavour! Also added carrots and beans to it and ate with plain rice!! I did it the ‘chinese style’ by soaking my beef in a little baking soda and water before cooking as apparently this is how they do it to make it extra tender and honestly amazing!! I will do this little trick with every red meat i cook in the future it melted in our mouths!! Sensational ๐Ÿ™‚


March 21, 2018

Omg! Yum! Followed the recipe and everybody loved it !

Leonie Rogers

March 6, 2018

Delicious flavours. I think I had a little too much liquid, so it was a bit runny, but the flavours were rich and fragrant. Will make this again!

February 25, 2018

when the kids who are fussy eaters, sit down try a mouthful, then continue to shovel it into their mouths, and donโ€™t say a word til they have completely cleaned the bowls, you know itโ€™s a winner!!!


January 15, 2018

This is always a winner at our house with everyone going back for seconds! I also throw some carrots in to bulk it out a bit more. Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ˜Š

Sarah O’Connor

January 8, 2018

absolutely delicious! I put my kids ones in a separate bowl from the rice so if the fussy things didn’t like it they could just eat the rice, but instead they asked for more! Shall def be doing it again soon, thanks so much for sharing

A very tasty meal. Will definitely be making it again. Thanks for sharing your recipe

Demolished!!! I’m usually very critical of anything I cook (much to my husbands frustration!). I cannot actually fault this recipe!

I’ve made this before and omgodness tasted like it was brought from a Chinese restaurant. Was so good. Making it again tonight.

An absolute winner! Doubled the recipe and served on fried rice. Perfect Father’s Day lunch and four meals for leftovers. Added 3 chopped up chilli’s and seeds and gave it the minor hint of heat I was looking for to complement the magnificent flavour


September 1, 2017

This was so easy and so delicious!! Served with rice and steamed vegies. Will definitely be making it again.

I think i used the wrong cut of steak so was a little tough but amazing otherwise

August 16, 2017

Love this. I didn’t realize how many I would like it.


July 31, 2017

I didnt brown the beef and found it to be a yummy and easy dish that was a big hit. Will definately be on my favourite list


July 27, 2017

Made for the first time tonight. Was a success! Served with coconut rice. Added to my folder of favourites that I have been printing out. Definitely making again.

Finally tried this recipe out and what can I say what a wonderful flavor! So easy and you don’t even need to thicken the sauce as it gets a great consistency on its own. With just the right amount of sauce to go with the lovely tender meat, will definitely be making this again.

Darren Comley

July 18, 2017

I made this for the first time and based on earlier feedback I was expecting a strong flavour. It did not disappoint!! Really easy to make and really tasty meal. I will definitely make this again and it lends it self to doubling or tripling the recipe if you have a large crew to feed. I served it with the site’s fried rice recipe. First time for both recipes and both were real winners!!

Yvette Copley

July 11, 2017

This was delicious! I lightly steamed some chopped broccoli, carrots and zucchini and stirred them through for the last half hour of cooking time and served it with rice.
We will be having this again!


July 9, 2017

I’d like to substitute the sugar for 1/4 cup of Rice Malt Syrup. I wonder whether anyone has tried this? I’m just trying to cut back on the sugar…but it sounds delicious!

Christine Nash

July 8, 2017

Made this for the first time. Family loved it. The only thing I might change next time is a dash of sweet chilli sauce.
I have 2 fussy eaters and they both went back for seconds.
Thank you so much for sharing.


June 23, 2017

YUM! I made beef stock and put this in instead of plain water. I separately steamed carrot and (tinned) baby corn and mixed this through just before serving.

This is thin strips so 4hrs is correct ๐Ÿ™‚

Is 4 hours enough cooking time for chuck steak?? I usually cook chuck for 8 hours.

Sandra Carven

June 15, 2017

Made this for the second time tonight, my husband absolutely loves it. Adding to favourites list. I am now addicted to this site, the recipes are so easy. I did add some sliced up leek as I didn’t have spring onions.


June 2, 2017

This is one of my favourite meals to make in the slow cooker. It is so easy, fairly cheap (I get about 5 lots of it from medium sized bottles of soy and hoisin at approx $2.50/bottle and the steak is a cheap cut as well), and absolutely delicious. Everyone loves it from kids to adults. Total winner.


May 20, 2017

Not a fan! I made it once before and didn’t like the taste so tried it again, thinking I may have done something wrong…… nope, just not a fan of the flavour!
Not sure if it’s because I love the Chinese version and it’s nothing like this!! Maybe I’m just picky!

Ann Noonan

March 15, 2017

This was so good….and the aroma going through the house was awesome loved it thank you ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

It produces more during cooking ๐Ÿ™‚


March 6, 2017

ive had to double this recipe is there meant to be much fluid or little to none?

June Swiney

February 21, 2017

do you think hokein noodle will be a good accompniment. Am making now


February 19, 2017

I made this with lamb and it was delicious! It’s a very strong flavour but I love hoi-sin sauce so that’s OK. I served with rice and stir-fry veg.

Vicki Buzelin

February 18, 2017

Loved this dish as does my usually fussy son. I’ve made it many times and found it a little salty at first but i now reduce the amount of soy sauce and add capsicum and carrot. Perfect!

Jenny Greenwell

January 16, 2017

Just love this dish, will definitely make again. I used rump steak thinly sliced. Next time will double recipe. Thanks for sharing

Jenny Greenwell

January 16, 2017

This was one of the best dishes I have made in the SC. The sauceis amazing and the meat so tender. Loved it


January 12, 2017

I doubled the recipe as we are a large family and it was loved by all… 5 kids no complaints 4 asked for seconds!! Must try!

Ange Marie

January 12, 2017

This was a yummy recipe.
Next time I will cook for 2.5 as at 3hrs my meat was dry so i didnt cook it for the 4hrs stated in the recipe. It could be my slow cooker might cook hotter. I also added 1 carrot sliced, 1/2 cup sliced capsicum, 1/2 cup beans cut in half & I added them at the beginning next time i will add them at 2hrs. I also added some freshly chopped chilli to hubbys he liked it. I will make it again.

Angela Te Whata

January 11, 2017

Is there an alternative for the hoisin sauce please?

Cut into strips first ๐Ÿ™‚


January 11, 2017

So do you need to chop up the chuck steak before cooking or you just brown the big steaks and it falls apart in the sc anyway?


January 11, 2017

I’ve made this numerous times and each time it is loved by one and all. My Uncle tried it last year for the first time and OMG he went back for seconds and I’m talking big servings here. Now he is nagging my Aunt to make it for him ๐Ÿ˜€ Great and easy meal to make. I always make double so I have leftovers ๐Ÿ™‚

One of the first few things I could get the fussy 16 year old to eat from the slow cooker – love the way it wafts through the house while cooking too – YUM!

Colleen Snibson

September 9, 2016

Wow. Once reading that this was better than store bought, I had to try it. I must say, it didn’t disappoint. I had about 1.1 kg of beef, so I doubled the recipe. And this time, I adjusted my cooking time to compensate for my slow cooker, and the meat turned out absolutely beautiful. I ended up cooking it for 3 hours on low instead of the 3.5 – 4 hours.
The family’s only real negative was they found the sauce to be a bit intense, but all that means is that next time I make it (and there will definitely be a next time), I will probably reduce the amount of the sauce a little or add a bit more water.


August 10, 2016

Delicious! A huge fav with the whole family! I added lots of veggies to our mix, yum!

Robyn Smith

August 7, 2016

Really disappointing. Horrible flavour, didnt like it at all. Binned it..toast for dinner tonight..?

Sharon Don

Enjoyed by all partner says it’s a keeper ??


August 4, 2016

Hi I am going to make the Mongolian beef tomorrow and wanted to know if it is necessary to brown the meat. Loving all your recipes. Thanks


August 3, 2016

This was delicious! I didn’t cook the meat first and was still great! Will definitely make this again!

Nat Revell

July 26, 2016

Made this for dinner tonight. Was very tasty! Add broccoli and carrot, served with rice ๐Ÿ™‚

Christie C

It wasn’t as spicy as it is when you get it take-away, but that was perfect for my daughter who wouldn’t usually touch it. She ate every last bit! Great flavour. Definitely on our ‘do again’ list.

Sarah Deane

Leeanne Henderson

May 29, 2016

absolutely delicious have made a few times always enjoyed


May 27, 2016

This was very delicious when I tried it for the first time last week. I did have to cook it for longer to get the meat tender though, but that’s no biggie ๐Ÿ™‚


May 23, 2016

It was great. Full of flavour but also light. Went well with rice. Will be making it again

Kristen Booker

May 21, 2016

I had a few problems frying up the beef strips (they stuck to the pan!) but overall this was a success. I also cooked it for 5-6 hours and the meat was beautifully tender.


May 21, 2016

Thinking of trying this, do you need to brown the meat or can I throw it in the slow cooker raw? Thanks!

Jenny riley

May 19, 2016

What can you substitute for Hoskins sauce I live in the bush and really want to make it..

Amy McDonald

Samantha reynolds

May 10, 2016

Absolutely Devine. Everyone who I’ve made this for just love it

Jo Smith

May 9, 2016

Made this today. Had no brown sugar so added just under 1/4 cup of maple syrup instead and then an hour befre I wanted to serve I add julienne carrots, broccoli and beans. Then served with steamed rice.


May 6, 2016

Made this last night and it was a hit, tasted so good. Added mushrooms, carrots, snow peas and capsicum also and worked a treat

Irene Spear

April 23, 2016

This is really lovely, I enjoyed the sweetness but my hubby didn’t. Would cut out the sugar totally to reduce the sweetness and maybe up the soya sauce a little. Will make again. Thank you

Irene Spear

April 19, 2016

Very sweet, I loved it, but should you have a family member not keen on sweet tasting meat rather leave out the sugar.


April 17, 2016

This is a 10/10 in our house. A huge hit with both young and old.


April 17, 2016

I am making this for tonights dinner, will throw in some baby broccolini and julienne carrots the last hour. A friend told me to cook it for 5 hours as 4 wasn’t enough on LOW

christine tobin

April 17, 2016

April 9, 2016

Kin Loy

March 24, 2016

Absolutely amazing dish, a family favourite, even with 3 fussy teenage sons!!


March 13, 2016

I added a bag of Chinese vegetables to this. Was rather excited to try as so many people had been posting about it but I wasn’t really impressed with this recipe. Was ok but would not make again

Wendy May

February 27, 2016

We tried this for the first time today – delicious! Will definite be adding it to our list.

Kristy mitchell

February 24, 2016

This recipe is great. I haven’t seen my partner so excited about his lunch the next day at work lol.. even my 3 year old loved it.


February 24, 2016

Cooked this with diced lamb, added some sliced green capsicum, and about 1/2 tsp chilli towards the end as I felt it needed a bit of heat, and some black pepper, sprinkled over some thinly sliced spring onions before serving with steamed rice, cooked for around 4 hrs might cook a little longer next time, a beautiful tasty dish.


February 22, 2016

Whole family loved this. It was Devine and I’ll happily make it again. I used sweet soy sauce instead of normal soy.


February 18, 2016

Great easy recipe! One of my favorite ones in the book. It’s versatile, you can add any vegetables if you want to & freezes well. I did substitute the sugar for approx 20gms of sugar & still tasted great.

Lisa Casey.

February 18, 2016

I made this a few weeks ago and it was Devine. I plan on making this tonight but I’ll double ever thin so hubby has crib for a week

A very tasty dish and one that will be on a regular rotation in our house ๐Ÿ™‚
I added a few veg near the end – and it was perfect.


February 8, 2016

I made it with light soy sauce to reduce the saltiness. Also added some pepper & a dash of chilli flakes for a little bit of heat. Towards the end I threw in some broccoli and capsicum to make it a complete meal. Served with rice & a sprinkle of sesame seeds at the end….. Yum!

Slice first ๐Ÿ™‚


January 17, 2016

Question: Do you slice up the beef before putting it in the slow cooker or do you put the whole steak in?


January 12, 2016

way too salty for our family

melanie Barton

January 12, 2016

had seen this popping up on Facebook and decided to give it a go,well it is absolutely gorgeous a new favorite in our household

Chris McInnes

January 10, 2016

this one is a favorite in our house we have it often


January 5, 2016

Delicious! I added some chilli in as my partner loves hot Mongolian beef and it was a hit!

In the slow cooker.
It’s a slow cooker recipe.
We only deal in slow cooker recipes ๐Ÿ™‚


January 4, 2016

Are you cooking this in slow cooker or cooking it on stove?

Marilyn Jacobs

December 19, 2015

Just made this recipe following exactly except we had almost 2 pounds of flank steak because that is what was in package. We really liked it. I cooked it for 4 hours but felt like it was done after about 3. It seemed like the longer it cooked the more intense the flavor. I will be making it again.


November 12, 2015

Very rich. Used rump steak very thinly sliced. Nice flavour but too rich for me, although my husband really enjoyed it. Think I would prefer a lighter variation.

Karen Stuckings

November 11, 2015

This sauce also works great with lamb. I also like to stir through my steamed veggies just before serving
