Hello everyone I’m Tess and welcome to my kitchen. Tonight I am making a Chinese spicy beef stir-fry. Soft tender beef with a delicious spicy Hoisin chili sauce. I’ll show you how to make this meal from start to finish. Stay tuned! If you like beef and spicy you are going to enjoy this Chinese stir-fry. I’m making sure I have everything prepped and ready before cooking. I have about a pound and a half of top sirloin or London broil cut that I thinly sliced across the grain. I’m adding in a sprinkle of white pepper, a large egg white and about 2 tablespoons of cornstarch. You may need to add more cornstarch depending on the amount of meat that you have. You want to mix thoroughly making sure all the beef pieces are coated and the cornstarch absorbed. Letting that rest and marinate for about 30 minutes. I am using the Velveting technique to cook the beef. The results are soft and tender piece of beef with a velvety smooth texture.
I’m cooking the beef in two batches as not to overcrowd the pan. I have a pot of low simmering water and I’m adding in my pieces of beef. The beef will sink to the bottom. Once the pieces are in, give it a gentle jsush to make sure nothing sticks to the bottom. As the beef cooks it will float to the top. This will only take one to three minutes and be careful not to overcook the beef. If need be give it a taste test along the way. Once done, remove the beef and set it to the side. Next is the sauce. The sauce does contain several ingredients but it is well worth it. It has a great balance of salty, sweet and heat.
We like lots of sauce so I’m starting with a half a cup of water and am adding in two tablespoons of ShaoXing cooking wine or you can use rice vinegar, 1 teaspoon of dark mushroom flavor soy sauce and this is going to add a rich flavor and color, four tablespoons of hoisin sauce, 3 tablespoons of ketchup, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and this is four tablespoons of sweet chili sauce. It’s going to add the heat. And finally 2 teaspoons of cornstarch for thickener. Giving that a good mix. I have all my vegetables and other ingredients prepped and ready and we are ready to cook. You can use a wok or pan and on medium heat I’m adding in about 3 tablespoons of oil and a tablespoon of minced garlic and ginger. Cooking and stirring for about 30 seconds and then I’m adding in my vegetables. Tonight I’m using some diced onions, carrots, celery, bell peppers and mushrooms. This is a great time to clean out the refrigerator. Broccoli is also really good in this recipe. Cooking and stirring for five to eight minutes or until the veggies are tender. Just a reminder that I will leave the recipe and the list of ingredients for this Chinese spicy beef stir-fry below this video.
