Hoisin Pork Steaks – Syn Free

So, this week I’m determined to slip back into a healthy eating lifestyle after a disastrous 2020. Let’s face it, I think it was a disaster for most people with the global pandemic and lockdowns. We looked around for some slow cooker slimming world friendly recipes to try. I can tell you there are some little gems out there. This Hoisin Pork Steaks recipe is ideal when I have a busy day working from home, or helping with homeschooling. It is a recipe I can put it in the slow cooker at the start of the day, then set it off on low mid-morning for a delicious evening meal.

As it’s all cooked in the slow cooker, there’s not a great deal of mess to clean up afterwards either. Well, aside from a frying pan to sear the steaks initially. A welcome bonus after wrangling with the kids schoolwork and certainly stops us reaching for the Prosecco!

  • 8 Pork Steaks All visible fat removed
  • 250 ml Chicken Stock (1½ oxo chicken cubes)
  • 200 ml Soy Sauce
  • 4 Spring Onions Thinly sliced
  • 4-6 Cloves Garlic Crushed
  • 4 tbsp Granulated Sweetner

  • 2 tsp Chinese 5 Spice
  • 1 tsp Mild Chilli Powder
  • ½ tsp Chilli Flakes Optional


  1. Sprinkle the 2tsp of Chinese 5 Spice onto the pork steaks and sear in a hot pan for 1 minute each side. This helps the pork steaks keep their shape when cooking, otherwise you’ll end up with something resembling pulled pork

  3. Mix the remainder of the ingredients into a large jug, stir and pour over the pork steaks

  4. Cook either on high for 4 hours, or on low for 6 hours
