Here’s my personalised dish – the “Black Pepper Beef Crunchito” which is one of my favourite stir- fried beef recipe that i would love to share with everyone.
To marinade the beef
200 grams of sirloin beef
1/2 teaspoon of soda powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2-3 tablespoons of cornstarch
1 tablespoon of sesame oil
To make the Sauce
3 small onions
A small amount of ginger
2 tablespoons of ground black pepper
1 tablespoon of white pepper
2 tablespoons of oyster sauce
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
enough palm oil
to serve with
garnish with red and yellow capsicums
For the sirloin beef, add in the soda powder, salt, cornstarch and sesame oil with the beef. Stir well to coat the beef in the marinade and set aside at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
At the end of the marinating time, heat up a pan till it’s nearly smoking. Then pour in the palm oil and add in the marinated beef. Stir fry for 3 minutes or until evenly browned. Remove the beef from the pan and leave it aside on a plate.
Reheat the pan, add in finely chopped onions and ginger, grounded black pepper and white pepper. Fry them for about 3 minutes or until it has aromatic spicy taste. Then add in the oyster sauce, soy sauce and water. Cook for one minute and mix in the well-cooked beef and stir fry briskly. Remember not to overcook the beef.
Serve with crunchy lettuce and garnish with red and yellow capsicums.
or you can eat it with steamed rice as a meal.
Adjust the quantity of black peppercorn to suit your preference. For the best result, grind the black peppercorn or purchase ground black pepper which is readily grind from the supermarket instead of using powdered ones. So that the pepper taste is fresh and potent.
