I love Chinese food. I mean, who doesn’t? Asian cuisine is well-balanced and diverse. Spicy, salty, sweet, light, sour, meaty, etc., etc. Personally, I admire the depth of aromas and scents. It’s unspeakable delight for human senses. Versatility of Asian food relies also on the fact that it can be turned from comfort, greasy fastfood to classy, sensuous, sophisticated meal in any minute. It all depends on how you serve it.
I post a simple Asian meal, called beef stir fry. One of my favorite. As in the title, the main hero is beef, plus some exotic spices and fresh vegetables. Enjoy.
-boneless beef meat (200g)
-mix of whole pepper (black, white, red)
-2 tablespoons of dark soy sauce
-fresh lemon juice + lemon peels
- Cut beef into quite small, flat pieces. In a deep bowl make marinade. Slice onion into big pieces, do the same with red pepper. Pulp some ginger, save the juice. Rub everything into the meat, then add about 2 tablespoons of dark soy sauce and few drops of fresh lemon juice. Mix it with handful of cornstarch. At the end peel some lemon skin on top of the marinade just for some pleasant aroma. Lemon goes very well with ginger. Cover with foil and leave in fridge for at least 1 hour.
- Heat frying pan until very hot. Add a splash of vegetable oil. Then add marinated meat. Cut some more onion, pepper and ginger root into big pieces. After few minutes of frying, add vegetables for about 2 minutes just to make them bit softer.
- Serve with rice.
