Recipe Ingredients for Chinese Beef Curry

1 pound flank steak

Marinade:
15 grams of light soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice wine
1 teaspoon sesame seed oil
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch

Other:
1/2 medium yellow onion
3/4 cup green peas
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
2 grams of ginger (1 thin slice)
3 tablespoons curry powder, to taste
2 tablespoons water, as needed, to make a paste
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons canola oil

Recipe Directions for Chinese Beef Curry

  1. Cut the beef across the grain into thin strips approximately 1 1/2 inches long and 3/4 inch wide. Add the marinade ingredients, adding the cornstarch last. Marinate the beef for 25 - 30 minutes.

  2. While the beef is marinating, prepare the vegetables. Peel and chop the onion. Blanch the peas in boiling water for 1 minute. Rinse in cold water and drain thoroughly. Combine the chicken broth with the dark soy sauce and set aside.

  3. Preheat the wok on medium-high heat (the wok is ready when a couple of drops of water sizzle when added to the wok). Add 2 tablespoons oil to the wok, drizzling to coat the sides. When the oil is sizzling, add the ginger. Cook for 2 ? 3 minutes, until the ginger is browned. Discard the ginger.

  4. Add the beef to the wok (to avoid overcrowding the wok, cook the beef in 2 batches if needed). Sear the beef for about 30 seconds, then stir-fry until it is about 80 percent cooked and changes color. Remove the beef from the wok. Turn the heat down to medium.

  5. Add the onion to the wok. Let the onion cook for 2 minutes to brown, then add the curry powder. Add enough water to make a paste. Let the onion cook for a couple of minutes, then add the peas.

  6. Add the beef. Return the heat to medium-high and add the chicken broth and dark soy sauce. Bring to a boil. Stir in the salt and sugar. Cook for about another 3 minutes and serve hot.
