RECIPE TITLE "Hot Sesame
Seed Beef" Author: Stuart
serves 4 25
- 1 Tbsp rice wine
- 1/2 tsp sugar
- 2 tsp cornstarch
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
tsp sesame oil
- 5 tsp soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp sesame seeds
- 1 1/2 tsp hot bean paste
- 1 1/2 tsp hoisin sauce
- 1 1/2 tsp oyster sauce
- 1 tsp minced ginger
- 2/3 lb beef tenderloin flank
- 3-4 lettuce leaves
(Use bok-choy if you can get it)
- 2-4 Tbsp peanut oil
- Mix together all
of the marinade ingredients.
- Slice the beef across
the grain into thin, diago- nal pieces (about the size of your smallest
finger). Marinate for about half an hour.
- Heat the wok until
a drop of water dropped into it dances around as it boils. Add enough
oil to coat the wok and saut' the ginger. Stir-fry the let- tuce. Stir-fry
the beef (in batches so the wok doesn't cool down too much).
- Reduce the heat.
Return the vegtables to the wok. Add the topping. Stir around until everything
is mixed and heated evenly. Serve.
NOTES: Also add any
other vegtables that you feel like. Sliced carrots or broccoli are especially
nice. Hot bean paste also goes by the name Szechuan bean sauce etc. This
is the main "spicy" ingredient and should be han- dled with care. Vary
this ingredient to taste.
