This recipe for crispy ginger beef is saucy and delicious.
3/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup water
1 large carrot, julienned
3 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup fresh ginger, minced
5 garlic cloves, minced
3 Tablespoons soy sauce
4 Tablespoons rice vinegar
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
1/2 cup granulated sugar
crushed red pepper flakes to taste
In a large bowl, add cornstarch and water and whisk.
Beat the eggs into the cornstarch mixture.
Toss in the beef strips and stir to coat evenly.
In a wok or a high-sided pan, heat oil to 375 degrees F. Add about a quarter of the beef to the oil.
Separate the beef strips with a fork and cook, turning often, until crispy. Remove and drain on brown paper and paper towel. Set aside.
Continue cooking until all beef is cooked.
Drain all except 1 tablespoon of oil from your wok or pan and then add the onion, carrots, ginger and garlic.
Saute briefly over high heat.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, granulated sugar and red pepper flakes and then add to the veggies.
Bring to a boil, add beef and then heat thoroughly. Serve hot.
