I am always thinking of different flavourful meals to make. I love the taste of Ginger, so when I recently bought a roast I decided to try Ginger Beef. I used what I had in the house, here is how I made it.
1 2 lb roast or any other meat of your choice
1/4 cup Hoisin or plum sauce
1/2 cup beef or vegetable stock
2 tbsp soya sauce
2 tbs vinegar (rice vinegar if you have)
2 tbs vegetable oil
3 cloves garlic minced
1-2 carrots thinly sliced or veggies of your choice
1 red pepper sliced add green for extra colour
2 green onions thinly sliced
2 tbs ginger
2 or 3 pieces of candied sugar thinly sliced
Combine stock, hoisin, vinegar, soya sauce and cornstarch. Toss the meat in 1/4 cup of mixture and set aside.
In a heavy skillet or wok heat 1 tbsp of oil over high heat, add beef in small batches and cook for 2 minutes or until browned with a bit of pink. Remove and place in a bowl.
Add 1 tsp of oil to the pan. Reduce heat to medium and stir in garlic and ginger for about a minute. Add carrots and peppers and 1/4 cup of water, continue cooking covered for 4 minutes to steam until tender.
Return meat to the pan and add remaining sauce until thickened stir in onions.
Serve over rice or noodles.
My hubby loved it, and had no other words but more please when he tasted it.
