Watch how we make it:



Cut beef into large strips


Marinade the beef strips with cornflour, salt, soy sauce and oil. Mix and set aside. You can cook straight away or leave for up to 30 minutes.


Heat wok on high heat (without oil). When hot, fry the beef on high heat for 1 minute 30 seconds and set aside.

Ready? Let's cook!


Heat oil on high heat in wok until hot.


Fry onions and the green peppers for 30 seconds.


Add the diced garlic and the fermented black beans and fry for 30 seconds.


Add the beef strips (be careful you don’t add the juice that has come out of it) and fry for 30 seconds.


Add in 2 tbsp water, the sugar and salt and mix in.


Mix together cornflour mixture and slowly pour it in a little at a time. Once the sauce thickens stop adding. If you’ve added too much and the sauce is too thick, add a little water back in to loosen it.


Add soy sauce and fry for another 30 seconds.
