INGREDIENTS
  • Servings: 2
  • 1lb sirloin steak (sliced into thin strips)
  • ¾ cup cornstarch
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 large carrot (julienned)
  • 3 green onions (chopped)
  • ¼ cup fresh ginger (minced)
  • 5 garlic cloves (minced)
  • Canola oil (for frying)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
DIRECTIONS
  1. In a bowl add cornstarch, gradually add water while whisking. Beat eggs into cornstarch/water mixture. Add sliced steak strips and toss to coat. Pour 1 inch of oil into a wok, heat oil to 375 degrees or until oil is hot enough to fry the steak strips. Add a quarter of the steak strips at a time to the wok. Separate with a fork and cook stirring frequently until crispy. Drain on paper towels. Repeat until all the steak is gone (*you can also use a deep fryer for this).
  2. Drain all oil out of the wok except for 1 tablespoon. Add green onion, carrots, ginger and garlic. Stir fry for 30 seconds-1 minute.
  3. In a small bowl combine soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, sugar and red pepper flakes. Add to the wok and bring the mixture to a boil. Add beef, heat thorough and serve.
