  • Garlic - 2(minced)
  • Pepper - ¼ tsp (white or black)
  • Bi-carbonate of soda - a pinch/ ⅛ of a tsp
  • Mix everything together and keep it in the fridge covered for 1 hour.
  • For sauce:
  • Crushed garlic - 5
  • Crushed ginger - 1"
  • Spring onions - 2 plant (you don't have to cut these)
  • Green chilli - 2 (optional)
  • Coriander leaves - 1 plant
  • Soy sauce - 2 table spoon
  • Oyster sauce - 1 tsp (you can use mushroom based ones)
  • Honey - 1 tbs
  • Water/stock - ¾ cup
  • Boil all these ingredients in water and allow it to cool and strain and keep. You can keep it in the fridge for later use if you want.
  • Other Ingredients for stir frying:
  • Onion - 1
  • Big red chilli - 1 (remove seeds,cut into long thin slices)
  • Bell pepper (Capsicum) - 1 (cut into cubes)
  • Carrot - 1 (medium, cut into thin big slices)
  • Broccoli - 1 (bite size pieces)
  • Spring onion - few stems (cut small)
  • Green chilli sauce - 1 tsp (optional)
  • Oil - 4 table spoon
  1. Marinate the beef.
  2. Make the sauce.
  3. Add 2 table spoon of corn /all purpose flour to the beef and mix it very well.
  4. This is the 3rd stage where you cook and combine everything. Heat oil in a wok or big pan. When the oil is heated fry the beef batch by batch and drain it in paper towel. Beef should only be ¾ th cooked.
  5. Now add the cut vegetable in the same oil you have fried beef. If there is too much oil remove it. You'll need only 1 table spoon oil for the rest of the cooking.
  6. when the vegetable is slightly cooked add the fried beef and saute for a minute. Now you can add the strained sauce and chilli sauce and allow it to bubble. If you think you need more sauce or more thick gravy add ½ tsp corn flour in water/stock and add to the beef.
  7. When the beef is cooked and vegetables are soft to your preference take it out of the heat and serve piping hot.
  8. Garnish with spring onion.
  9. Notes:
  10. Since the beef are cut thinly it'll take only a few minutes to cook it.
  11. Do not cook the vegetable too much. it should have a bite.
