Preheat the oven to 140°C. Set the oven rack into the centre.
Place the beef in a lidded, ovenproof container where it fits snuggly. Mix together one packet of the Wattie's Wok Creations Chinese BBQ stir-fry sauce with the mirin (or sake and sugar) along with the orange rind and juice. Pour over the beef. Cover with a lid or foil.
Bake in the preheated oven for 2 1/2 hours. Remove the lid or foil, turn the brisket over in the sauce and continue to cook, without the cover, for a further 30 minutes. Remove from the oven. (At this point the beef can be covered and allow to cool in the cooking juices and then refrigerated for a couple of days.)
Pour the juices surrounding the beef into a small saucepan, and the contents of the second packet of the Wattie's Wok Creation Chinese BBQ stir-fry sauce, add the ginger and simmer the sauce until it is reduced by a third and has become thick and syrupy.
Use two forks to shred the beef and fold through the sauce. Serve atop plain boiled rice and garnish with the peanut & shallot crumble. For the crumble, just toss the shallots, peanuts, spring onions or chives and chilli, is using, together.
For slow cooking, allow 4-5 hours on low. Strain the sauce and continue from step 4.
