    Spicy Ginger Beef

    General
    500g beef - I buy the stir fry pre sliced beef
    6tbsp peanut oil
    1 tbsp fresh ginger - I double/triple this depending on the quantity of sauce
    1 large clove minced garlic - I double/triple this depending on the quantity of sauce
    1 sliced green capsicum and 1 sliced red capsicum

    Marinade
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp pepper
    1 beaten egg
    2 tbsp cornflour

    Sauce
    2 tbsp water
    1 tbsp dark soy
    1 tbsp light soy
    1 tbsp dry sherry
    1 tbsp hoi sin
    1 tsp sugar
    1/2 tsp chilli paste

    Preparation
    Slice beef into strips (if not already sliced) and put in marinade for at least 20mins in fridge
    Mix the sauce in a bowl - I use a measuring jug to make it easier to pour later on and I also tend to triple the sauce (we like sauce lol)
    Cut the capsicums into strips

    Cooking
    In a hot wok heat 4tbsp of oil until smoking and then stir fry the beef for 2mins (until colour changes)
    Remove beef from wok and drain off oil then put to one side
    Put 2 tbsp oil into wok and heat then add the garlic and ginger for about 10secs before adding capsicum.
    Stir fry for 2 mins then add sauce.
    Return beef to the wok and stir over high heat.
    Serve with rice.


    I often add more soy sauce at the end to my serving but it depends on your tastes :-)

    *1 small garlic clove, finely chopped
    *Grated zest of 1 lemon, plus juice of 1/2 lemon
    *1/4 cup (50g) salted baby capers, rinsed, drained

    Method

    First proper meal I cooked for dh and his family. Broccoli and ricotta cannelloni with a pine nut and olive Napoli sauce.

    I also make a yummy trifle using fruche instead of cream.

    I always think my signature dishes are those I can do really well without using a recipe book!

    -Beef Stroganoff - first ever meal I cooked for my DH when we first started dating!

    -Slow roasted Pork or Lamb (4hours for the pork, 6 hours for the lamb) so yummy!with crunchy roast taters of course and extras!

    - Beetroot, Feta and Rocket Salad

    I make too many different sweet things that I dont have a specialty
