Szechuan Beef Slimming World Recipe

Szechuan Beef

This Szechuan beef recipe has chillis and chilli sauce in it but I think we’re going to leave them out or not add as much because Ella doesn’t like anything spicy.

Szechuan Beef

1.5 syns per serving
Serves 4


  • 400g of lean rump, sirloin or fillet steak, visible fat removed
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce/tamari
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 2 tsp rice vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 level tsp cornflour
  • 2½ cm piece fresh ginger root, peeled and sliced
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 fresh chilli, deseeded and thinly sliced
  • A good pinch of Chinese five-spice powder
  • 1 yellow pepper, deseeded and cut into chunks
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and cut into chunks
  • 1 tsp chilli sauce
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 small red chilli, deseeded and cut into thin strips
  • 1 spring onion, finely sliced


  1. Trim off any fat on the steak and slice the meat thinly.
  2. Mix the soy sauce, water, vinegar, salt, cornflour and ginger together in a bowl.
  3. Add the strips of steak and turn them in the marinade. Cover and leave to marinate in the refrigerator or a cool place for 30 minutes.
  4. Heat the sesame oil in a wok or a deep frying pan, and stir in the garlic, chilli and Chinese five-spice powder. Cook for 1 minute, then add the marinated beef.
  5. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes, until the beef is brown outside but slightly pink and juicy inside. Remove and keep warm.
  6. Add the peppers and stir-fry for 2 minutes, then return the steak and any remaining marinade to the wok, together with the chilli sauce. Stir-fry briskly over a medium heat for 1 minute.
  7. Season with plenty of black pepper and scatter the chilli and spring onion over the top. Serve immediately.

    Ohh! I love the sound of this. It’s a great way to save some money too. Making this would save ordering a Chinese takeaway. x
