This is one of my all-time favourite Chinese dishes: It’s wonderfully fragrant, and both the taste and the texture are terrific.


  • 300 g beef sirloin
  • 3 cups vegetable oil
  • 4 pieces


Trim the beef and slice thinly. Heat a wok and add the oil. When it is just smoking, add about a quarter of the beef and stir-fry for 1 minute. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper. Heat the oil again and repeat the process until all the beef is cooked. Drain all but 2 tablespoons
