Crispy Honey Chilli Beef

Ingredients

  • 400g (14 oz) thin strips of beef (most steak cuts work here e.g. sirloin, rump, rib eye, scotch fillet, flank)
  • ½ cup corn flour (cornstarch)
  • vegetable oil for deep frying
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp finely sliced spring onion (scallions)

Marinade:

  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, finely grated
  • Stir-fry Sauce:
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp dark sweet soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp hoisin
  • 2 tbsp Chinese Shaoxing wine
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • ¼ tsp chilli flakes (or to taste)

Directions

Preparing the spices

1

Combine the beef with the marinade ingredients.

2

Fill a saucepan or wok to about 1/3 capacity with the vegetable oil. Heat over high heat. The oil is hot (about 325°F or 165°C) when a wooden spoon dipped into the oil forms small little bubbles.

3

Take half the beef strips and toss them with the corn flour. Then carefully add the beef strips into the hot oil. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until crispy and golden. Drain on paper towel and repeat with the remaining beef and corn flour.

4

Heat a clean wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the soy sauce, dark sweet soy sauce, hoisin, Shaoxing wine, honey and vinegar. Allow to simmer for about 2 minutes or until the sauce has thickened slightly. Stir through the chilli flakes. Now add in the crispy beef. Stir-fry until the beef is evenly coated and the sauce is thick. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and spring onion and serve.

Serve hot with rice. Enjoy!
