Sizzling Beef Recipe

Sizzling Beef Recipe

Ingredients:

400 g top-quality beef fillet, cut into 1.5 cm thick slices

2 tablespoons shao hsing Chinese cooking wine

2 tablespoons Chinese BBQ sauce - ideally Leung Cheung Woo brand

1 tablespoon peanut oil

1 teaspoon white sugar

1 tablespoon mushroom soy sauce

teaspoon sesame oil

2 small white onions, peeled

2 tablespoons peanut oil, extra

6 cm knob ginger, very finely sliced

4 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tablespoon shao hsing Chinese cooking wine, extra

1 teaspoon kecap manis

1 tablespoons mushroom soy sauce, extra

teaspoon sesame oil, extra

pinch Sichuan pepper and salt

cup lemon juice

 

Method:

Place wine, BBQ sauce, peanut oil, sugar and half the soy sauce and sesame oil in a large bowl.  Add beef and, using your hands, mix thoroughly.  Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.  Cut onions in half, then place cut-side down on a chopping board and cut into 2 cm wedges.  Pull the wedges apart to separate the layers.  Heat extra peanut oil in a hot wok until the surface seems to shimmer slightly.  Add onion, ginger and garlic and stir-fry for 1 minute.  Add beef to wok, along with its marinade, and sear on one side for about 1 minute, or until lightly browned; do not stir-fry.  Turn beef over and sear the other side for a further minute.  Add extra wine, kecap manis, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and extra sesame oil and stir-fry for 1 minute, or until the beef is just tender and the flavors are balanced.  Arrange beef on a platter, sprinkle with remaining soy sauce and Sichuan pepper and salt to taste.  Serve immediately with a small bowl of lemon juice on the side.
