    Directions

    For the beef: Heat a wok over high heat and fill halfway up with peanut oil. Heat the oil to 350 degrees F, or until a cube of bread turns golden brown in 15 seconds and floats to the surface.

    Place the beef strips in a large bowl and add 2 tablespoons cornstarch. Toss until the beef has absorbed the cornstarch. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon cornstarch right before frying and toss to coat.

    Fry the beef in 2 to 3 batches until golden, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels and season with sea salt.

    For the sauce: Set another wok or saute pan over high heat and add the soy sauce, chili sauce and orange juice. Bring to a simmer and cook until it becomes thickened and coats the back of a spoon, 1 to 2 minutes. Toss the beef in the sauce to coat thoroughly.

    Serve over a bed of the shredded lettuce and sliced cucumber that has been sprinkled with rice vinegar. Then garnish with the scallions and orange zest.

      This dish is Killer! Never any leftovers. I've used flank steak instead of the sirloin...works great. I recently found some 1/4 thick rib eyes at Dollar Tree in their frozen section..they worked fab! There are just two of us, so 2 of those $1 rib eyes makes this much more affordable to make now. (The rib eyes are 3.5 oz each; did the math, comes to $4.64/lb) I've served it as suggested over the romaine, but have also served it over Asian style slaw with a baked crunchy ramen noodle topping as garnish. Fantastic both ways! Oh, we do add some sambal olek or siracha to the sauce; we like spicy!

      Best crispy beef recipe I have found so far though I tweaked it some. (Last recipe I was using was a Blue Dragon one on their website). Cooked the beef as advised though I kept it warm in oven, prepped the sauce. I finely sliced half and onion (2 of us)julienned some red pepper finely sliced a red chilli and sliced a couple of cloves of garlic. Stir fried them in a tbsp. of oil from the pan for 2 mins then added the sauce (used the quantites above for 2 of us as would not have done 4) and then added the beef. A taste sensation. Thanks Ching-He Huang

      I don't know if I can add anything to previous reviews. This is an excellent recipe. My only stumbling block had to do with my lack of chili sauce knowledge. I think I bought a hotter one. (I used less)
