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
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 beaten egg
2 tbsp cornflour
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
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
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 :-)
