Chinese SPICY Beef Stir Fry Recipe ~ How To Velvet Beef

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.

Classic Beef Stew Recipe For Dinner – Natasha’s Kitchen

Hi everyone! Its Natasha of and today i’m sharing our family’s classic beef stew. It is so hearty and flavorful and the beef is so tender, it just melts in your mouth. In a large oven safe pot, preferably a Dutch oven, we’re gonna saute six ounces of chopped bacon. Stir that over medium heat until it’s golden brown and the fat is released, then remove it to a separate dish. While the bacon is cooking, stir together two pounds of chopped beef with half a tablespoon of salt, a teaspoon of black pepper and a quarter cup of flour. Stir that together until the beef is evenly coated. Transfer half of the beef into the hot bacon fat and cook over medium high heat or until the beef is browned – about three minutes per side.

Add a little more olive oil if needed, then add the second half of the beef and cook until browned. Transfer the browned beef to the bowl with the bacon, add 2 cups of good red wine to the pot and bring it to a boil, scraping the bottom to deglaze the pot. Add one pound of thickly sliced mushrooms and simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes. Roughly chop up four carrots into half-inch thick pieces, also dice 1 medium yellow onion and chopped 4 garlic cloves. Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Then add the sliced carrots, diced onion and chopped garlic. Saute that for 4 minutes, stirring frequently. Once the onions are soft, add a tablespoon of tomato paste and saute another minute. Then transfer the veggies to the pot. Add four cups of beef broth and season with two bay leaves, half a teaspoon of dried thyme, a teaspoon of salt and half a teaspoon of black pepper.

Add the beef and bacon back to the pot, then stir in 1 pound of small potatoes. You can cut these in halves or quarters, depending on how large they are. You want bite-sized pieces. Stir to combine and make sure the potatoes are submerged in liquid. Cover with a tight-fitting lid, then transfer to a preheated oven and bake at 325˚F for an hour and 45 minutes. Oh yes! Just in time for dinner and I am ready because the smell in my house is making me so hungry. Ok let’s do this. Are you ready? YUM! mmm… okay and then before I serve it, I like to skim off the extra fat; makes it just a little bit healthier and you don’t really need that extra oil on top and it’s super easy to do.

Just tilt your pot and spoon it up. And very important, I always love to add a little bit of garnish because it adds that fresh pop of color and flavor. And so I’ve got a little bit of parsley here. You can use dill if you like dill. There – isn’t that pretty? Okay, here we go. Oh my goodness and this is just loaded with all the good stuff! It is so hearty and it’s really a meal in itself. I’d like to serve it with a fresh crusty French bread. [bread crunch sound ] That sound gets me every time. Okay, here we go. Oh my goodness and that beef is just fall apart tender. My spoon goes right through it. Okay and this is still really hot so.

Oh my goodness this is gonna be a good dinner, literally that beef just melts in your mouth and there’s so much flavor. Adding the wine to the broth just really elevates the flavors and pulls them all together. So good! I cannot wait to eat this for dinner and my kids love it, which is like major win for Mom and it’s fancy enough for a nice dinner party. This seriously has really really good flavor, such a cozy thing for winter and if you’re not a mushroom lover, you can still enjoy this because if you thickly slice the mushrooms, they are easy to avoid and if you love the mushrooms…

Oh, I love thick sliced mushrooms. All right, I am gonna go call my kids for dinner because I’m hungry.
