This recipe is a good illustration of slippery-coating. Flank steak is coarse-grained and tough, but we shall see how the meat becomes extremely tender through cutting, marinating, coating, and fast cooking in hot oil over high heat.

Seasoned with fermented black beans, garlic, ginger, and oyster sauce, and embellished with onions and peppers, this is a hearty dish full of aroma and good flavor.
