Ginger Beef

3:40 AM

Ever since we found a place to cook our meals, we rarely eat out and that resulted in two familiar discoveries - the food is as fresh as it gets (cause we try to buy the ingredients the day we cook it) and we save quite a considerable amount of money (although we kind of overspent last month lavishly on groceries).

I usually start cooking after work, and that means I can't spend too much time on preparation and cooking as we'd be starving by the time food is ready. So most of my recipes under Quick Fix are pretty much the chop>wok>serve kind of food and today I'll share with you the simplest form of Ginger Chicken that point8cam and I whipped up together sometime last week.

Ingredients (Measurements are up to your serving preference)

Beef or chicken (stir fry cut or you can buy a block and slice it yourself) 
Young ginger, sliced 
Garlic, chopped
Spring Onions (top and middle part only)
Soy Sauce
Lea & Perrins sauce 
Oyster Sauce
Ground pepper

How to cook:

1. Marinate your meat in 2 teaspoons of soy sauce, 3 teaspoons of oyster sauce, ground pepper and Lea & Perrins. Let it sit for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, slice and dice your ginger and garlic.
2. Heat the wok, pour about 2 tablespoons of oil and sauté your garlic for a a little. Add in ginger and fry them until the ginger smell rises.
3. Add in the meat, fry them together and mix it well. The juice from the meat (if you use fresh meat) will usually seep out creating a gravy-like mixture but if not, add in a little bit of water (about 2-3 tablespoons). Do not overcook. If its not salty enough, add in one more tablespoon of oyster sauce and ground peppercorn. No salt is needed.
4. Add in the spring onions and let it simmer for a little.
5. Ready to serve with steamed white rice.

Remember girls, make sure you taste your food while you cook and try not to eat too much of unhealthy food outside. Good luck!
