Slow Cooker Korean Beef

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, cut into 1cm/½in slices
  • 1 tbsp vegetable or sunflower oil
  • 800g/1lb 12oz beef brisket, trimmed of excess fat and cut into matchbox-size cubes, or long, thick slices
  • 5 garlic cloves, crushed or finely chopped
  • 5cm/2in piece fresh root ginger, finely grated
  • 1 fat red chilli, shredded
  • 2 tbsp light muscovado sugar
  • 1 tbsp miso paste, optional, but this will add extra depth to the sauce
  • 6 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 300ml/½ pint beef stock
  • 1 tsp sesame oil, plus more to serve
  • 2 bunches spring onions, trimmed then cut into finger-length pieces
  • Few handfuls fresh beansprouts

STEP 1

STEP 3

Scatter with the garlic, ginger and chilli.

STEP 4

Stir the sugar, miso, soy, stock and sesame oil into the juices in the frying pan then bring to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the miso and sugar.
