Crispy Beef With Bamboo Shoots Recipe

Crispy Beef with Bamboo Shoots Recipe

I love crispy beef. I first ate it from a takeaway restaurant and I fell in love with it straight away, so I decided to create my own version. This is a very simple version of it — you can add whatever veggies you want to satisfy your tastebuds. We often have a piece of steak in the freezer and an onion or two in the cupboard so we can whip this up on a whim.

Recipe


Ingredients

  • Olive oil
  • 2 tbsp potato or corn starch
  • 1 tbsp salt & pepper
  • 1 eye fillet steak, cut into very thin strips
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup bamboo shoots

  • Sauce
  • 1 heaped tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp tamari
  • 1 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 tsp black sesame oil
  • 1 tsp chilli oil

  • To serve
  • ½ bunch coriander, leaves picked
  • 1 red chilli, sliced

Method


  • Heat a wok over medium-high heat and add enough oil to cover the bottom by an inch.
  • Mix the potato or corn starch with the salt and pepper. Dust the beef strips in the starch mix and fry until crisp.
  • Meanwhile, combine the sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Discard the oil from the pan, then stir-fry the onions and bamboo shoots briefly.
  • Reduce the heat to low, add the sauce and cook for about 1 min.
  • Add the crispy beef, coat with the sauce and serve immediately, topped with with coriander leaves and chilli.
  • Tip: Fry the beef in batches as the oil needs to stay very hot or you will not end up with crispy beef.
