This is my recipe for ginger beef like you get in the restaurants. Serve with rice and some steamed veggies.


Serves: 4 

  • 1/4 cup cornflour
  • 1/4 tablespoon salt
  • black pepper
  • 300g flank steak, thinly sliced
  • 1 litre oil for frying
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon rice wine
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 7 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon chilli paste
  • 1/4 cup (65ml) water
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger root
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup sliced onion
  • 1/4 cup diced red capsicum

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Heat oil in deep-fryer to 190 degrees C.
  2. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, combine cornflour, salt and pepper together. Mix thoroughly. Toss the steak slices in the cornflour mixture and coat well.
  3. Deep fry the coated steak slices until golden brown. Check to make sure they are cooked through. Remove from oil and set aside.
  4. In another mixing bowl, combine the soy sauce, rice vinegar, rice wine and honey. Add sugar, chilli paste, water and ginger. Mix well and set aside.
  5. Heat a wok or deep frying pan over medium high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of oil and quickly saute the onion, garlic and red capsicum for 30 seconds. Add the sauce mixture and cook another 30 seconds. Finally, add the strips of fried steak and toss to heat through and coat with sauce.
