Slow Cooker Satay Beef Recipe

Serve this slow cooker steak with white rice, spring onions, lime, peanuts and coriander. I love the sweet chilli peanuts from Morrisons (i’m sure other supermarkets do similar too). 

This is one of those meals which feels like a complete treat dinner. It’s the perfect ‘fake-away’ style dinner with so little effort.
