Black Pepper Beef 9/10

Black Pepper Beef 9/10

February 11 2009

• 200 g Beef rump steak (Sirloin preferable)
• 100 g Onion, shredded
• 1 clove Garlic, chopped
• 40 ml Stock
• Salad oil
• ½ tbsp Light soya sauce
• 1 tbsp Jiafan rice wine
• ¼ tsp Baking soda
• ½ tbsp Cornstarch
• ½ pc Egg white
Pepper Sauce:
• 1 tsp Black pepper powder
• 1 tbsp Oyster sauce
• ¼ tsp Sugar
• ½ tbsp Light soya sauce

Method / 做法:
1. Cut the beef into small strips or slices. Mix in the marinade and let stand for at least 30 minutes. Mix the pepper sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
2. Heat up a skillet with some oil. Add in marinated beef and cook until almost cooked. Scoop out and drain. Keep 1 tablespoon of oil in the skillet, adding in onion and garlice and stir until soft. Dish off.
3. Pour in the prepared sauce and the stock. Bring to a boil. Return the beef and onion to the skillet. Stir for about 1 minute until cooked. Dish off.

I kinda messed up this dish because I used the wrong ingredients. I put in 7.5g of ginger paste and 7.5g of garlic paste by accident. Also, I didn’t have light soya sauce so I used dark soya sauce. I used the marinade on taros and potatoes. I was afraid that the marinade was going to be a bit too salty but it was just right. I also used red onions instead of the ordinary type. Anyways, in the end I had to add a little bit more oyster sauce to get the flavor out, and a little bit more of black pepper and sugar. The sauce was actually quite nice…if not better than the restaurant ones.
