Ingredients

BEEF MARINADE

2 lb
flank steak or sirloin (if using chicken 4-5 boneless skinless breast)
1/4 c
soy sauce
2 Tbsp
dry cooking sherry or chinese rice wine
2 tsp
sesame oil
2 Tbsp
cornstarch

PEPPERS WITH SAUCE

2
red bell pepper
2
green bell pepper
1 c
water
1/4 c
dry sherry or rice wine
1/2 c
soy sauce
1/4 c
sugar
8 clove
garlic (chopped)
8 slice
ginger (chopped)
5 Tbsp
oil

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut beef in thin slices across the grain. Mix in 1/4 cup soy sauce, 2 tbsp sherry, 2 tsp sesame oil, and 2 tbsp cornstarch, adding the cornstarch last. Marinate for 30 mins.
2
Remove seeds from the peppers and cut into thin strips, about 2 1/2 inches in length.
3
In another bowl mix together 1 cup water, 1/4 cup sherry, 1/2 cup soy sauce, and 1/4 cup sugar.
4
Add 4 tbsp oil to a preheated wok or skillet. Add garlic and ginger and stir-fry briefly until aromatic. Add the beef and stir-fry until it changes color. Remove and set aside.
5
Wipe the wok or skillet with a paper towel. Add 1 tbsp oil. When the oil is hot, add the red and green peppers. Stir-fry briefly. Add the sauce and bring to a boil. Add the beef. Mix everything through and serve hot over cooked rice.
6
I like my sauce a little thicker and before adding the beef I usually add a little slurry of cornstarch and water to thicken it. Then add beef.
