30 Minute Ginger Beef – I could eat this every day of my life and never grow tired of it. And, with only 30 minutes from prep to table, there’s really no reason why I shouldn’t!




Prep Time: 20 min
Cook Time: 10 min
Serves: 4

Ingredients

1 pound skirt steak, sliced thinly

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated

2 cups carrots, julienned

1/2 cup white onion, finely chopped

1/2 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup white vinegar

2 tablespoons sesame oil

1/4 cup vegetable oil, plus more for frying

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 cup brown sugar, lightly packed

1/2 cup cornstarch

1/4 teaspoon dried chili flakes

2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Directions

  1. Toss the skirt steak with the corn starch in a large bowl and set aside.
  2. Over medium heat, add the vegetable oil and onions to a sauce pan. Sauté for two minutes until onions are translucent.
  3. Add the carrots to the onions and sauté for 3-4 minutes until tender.
  4. Next, add the garlic, ginger, and chili flakes. Stir into the carrots and onions. Cook for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Lastly, add the soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, black pepper, brown sugar, and sesame seeds. Whisk together.
  6. Lower the heat to a simmer and allow the sauce to slightly thicken.
  7. In the meantime, bring about 2-3 cups of vegetable oil to optimum frying temperature in a deep skillet. Shake the excess corn starch off the beef and fry each piece in batches until crispy. This process takes about 3-4 minutes. Drain the fried beef on paper towels.
  8. Finally, toss the fried beef with the sauce mixture. Serve immediately.
