Beef Sate – Chinese Style

Recipe and Photo Source:
Chinese Cooking Class Cookbook ‘Australian Womens Weekly’
I found a recipe the other day that I haven’t used for absolutely a.g.e.s.    It is FANTASTIC!
Beef in most Chinese recipes is generally cut into very fine slices. 
TIP:  Put the beef into the freezer for 30 minutes to make slicing easier.
500 g fillet steak (whole)
1 and a half teaspoons of soy sauce
2 teaspoons of sesame oil
1 teaspoon of conrn flour
2 tablespoons of water
2 tablespoons of oil
spring onions sliced length ways (for garnish)
1 clove of garlic
1 medium onion
3 teaspoons of sate sauce
2 teaspoons of dry sherry
1 teaspoon curry powder
2 tablespoons of water
2 teaspoons of soy sauce
half a teaspoon of sugar
Fill a bowl with ice water and add ice cubes
Add the spring onion to the iced water and place in fridge
Trim all the fat and sinew from the meat
Cut the meat into 5mm slices
Gently pound each slice to flatten slightly
Put the meat in a bowl
Add the so sauce, pepper, sesame oil, cornflour and water
Mix well
Stand for 20 minutes
Heat the oil in a wok or pan
Saute the meat until brown, separating each piece as it goes into the wok
Brown on both sides
Remove from the pan
Peel and roughly dice the onion
Add to the pan with the crushed garlic
Saute gently until the onion is transparent
Combine the sate sauce, sherry, sugar, curry powder, salt, water, and soy sauce
Add to the onions in the pan
Stir until the sauce is boiling
Return the beef to the pan
Cook until the beef is tender – about 1 minute
Place the beef onto a serving dish
Pour the remaining ingredients in the pan over the meat
Take the bowl of spring onions out of the fridge
(You will see that the spring onion would have curled 🙂
Garnish the steak (sprinkle on top)

Serve HOT with whatever takes your fancy
