Low Syn Beef In Black Bean Sauce | Slimming World Recipe

If you are anything like me.. you will LOVE Chinese food 😀 I certainly do. We tried this amazing recipe tonight and it was fantastic. A new favorite in our house that is for sure. The first time was a little spicy so i have adjusted the recipe slightly. (A little spicy may be underestimating a tad haha)

Portions: 2
Syns: 0.5 per serving.
Warmth: Spicy (reduce chillis for less heat)


For the marinade

– 1/2 tsp Sesame oil (1 syn)
– 1 tsp light soy sauce
– 1 tsp dark soy sauce
– 1/2 tsp black pepper
– Pinch of salt

For the sauce

– 1 Beef stock cube
– 150ml boiling water
– 1 tbsp oyster sauce
– 1 tsp light soy sauce
– 1 tsp dark soy sauce

Other ingredients

– 375g beef strips (or you can use chicken, turkey or pork)
– 1 large onion (or frozen onion)
– 2 garlic cloves (or 2 tsp garlic powder/flakes)
– 1/2 tsp ground ginger
– 1 red pepper
– 3 tbsp black beans (mashed)
– 2 red chilli peppers (use 1 for a less spicy recipe)
– 4 spring onions
– 1 tbsp rice vinegar
Fry light


– Try to marinade overnight if possible.. or as long as you can.

– Add all of the marinade ingredients to a mixing bowl.

– Add the beef and cover all of the strips allowing the marinade to soak in.

– Put the beef into a freezer bag or a covered bowl and keep in the fridge overnight or for as long as possible.


– Once you are ready to create your meal first start with the sauce.

– Add the boiling water and a stock cube into a jug to dissolve.

– Add the rest of the sauce ingredients and mix. Set this to one side until later.

The rest:

– Spray your pan with fry light and brown your beef.

– Once browned remove from pan and put to one side

– Chop your spring onion, onion, chillis and pepper and add to the pan with ginger and garlic.

– Fry until softened.

– Add your rice vinegar, Black beans and beef.

– Cook on a low heat for around 3 minutes ensuring the beef is cooked.

– Add your stock sauce and simmer for a further 3 minutes.

Serve with rice 🙂 Enjoy, we certainly did!
