This dish is easy but a real show stopper. For extra effect, cook it in a bamboo steamer that you can take straight to the table. I love the texture of the rice-coated beef. Having a steamed dish as part of a shared table will really take the pressure off you in the kitchen as they’re generally easy to prepare.
To make the marinade, mix together the soy sauce, black beans, shaoxing, bean paste, peppercorns and peanut oil. Add the steak and leave for 30 minutes.
Add the ground roast rice and mix to coat the steak well, then stir in
Remove from the heat. You can transfer to a plate or serve directly from the bamboo steamer, drizzled with the sesame oil.
