There’s something about chinese restaurants that they cook beef so well. It’s always so tender and so flavorful. I wish to replicate that. So when I saw the recipe in Yummy, I immediately planned to cook Beijing Beef at home.
The dish was yummy and it’s a decent adaptation of the Beijing dish. Not something I would say I would look for over and over but still, a good dish to eat. Make sure that when you cook the Beijing Beef, the tenderloin is sliced very thinly, ok?
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 kilo beef tenderloin thinly sliced
- 1 piece green bell pepper thinly sliced
- 1 piece red bell pepper thinly sliced
- 1 piece onion sliced
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 4 tbsp vinegar
- 1/2 tsp chili flakes
- 5 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tbsp cold water
- 1 tbsp corn starch
In a wok, heat oil over medium heat.
add beef tenderloin and saute for 3 minutes.
add bell peppers and onions and saute for another 2 minutes.
In a bowl, combine together water, sugar, ketchup, vinegar, chili flakes and garlic. Add mixture to wok.
mix ingredients and bring to a boil.
in another small bowl, combine water and cornstarch. pour into the wok.
stir ingredients well and cook until sauce is thick.
remove from heat and serve. enjoy!
