Spicy Beef

This dish was cooked almost like the Soup and Stir Fried Squid that I posted few weeks ago, the cooking procedure involved 2 parts, first part was to soften the meat and the final part was to semi stir-fry it. One thing I like in this type of cooking is we can have a soup while we were also having a taste of stir-fried dish in one.


500 kg beef sirloin, sliced into thin strips
1/4 tsp. turmeric powder

For the Soup:
1 medium onion, sliced thinly
1 tbsp. grated ginger
1 small ripe tomato, sliced thinly
1 tsp. whole peppercorns
3 tbsp. cooking oil
salt to taste
5 cups water

For semi stir-fry:
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 medium onion, sliced thinly
1 medium tomato, sliced thinly
1 small bell pepper, sliced into strips
1/3 cup mixed vegetables (optional)
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 tbsp. oyster sauce
2 tbsp. tomato ketchup
2 tbsp. cooking oil

For the Soup:
1. Mix turmeric powder and meat.
2. Heat oil in a pot, saute onions, ginger and tomatoes until tender.
3. Add meat and peppercorns, stir for few minutes.
4. Add water, let it boil, remove scums as it rises, cover the pot, lower the heat and simmer for 1 hour or until tender.
5. Season with salt.
6. Take out the whole meat from the broth. Reserve the soup.

To stir fry:
1. Heat oil in a pan, add the drained meat and stir fry for few seconds, add garlic, onions and tomatoes. Mix thoroughly, stir until the spices are tender.
2. Add all the remaining ingredients except oyster sauce. Mix well and stir for 1-2 minutes.
3. Turn off heat. Drizzle with oyster sauce. Transfer to a platter and serve. Now you have stir-fried beef and soup.
