Ginger Beef Recipe

It’s time for more Chinese food; here is a delicious recipe for ginger beef. Ginger beef is crispy strips of steak tossed with a sweet and spicy sauce. If you are a fan of
Mongolian beef, you will love this recipe. As pretty much always, I deep fried the steak strips but they can be fried in the work as well in about 1 inch of oil. This dish uses vegetables such as green onions and carrots but you could add others as well. It calls for 3 teaspoons of red pepper flakes but you can add more or less to adjust it to your tastes. Serve with white rice. Enjoy.

Ginger Beef Recipe

  • Author: Bobby


  • 1lb sirloin steak (sliced into thin strips)
  • ¾ cup cornstarch
  • A ½ cup of water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 large carrot (julienned)
  • 3 green onions (chopped)
  • ¼ cup fresh ginger (minced)
  • 5 garlic cloves (minced)
  • Canola oil (for frying)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • A ½ cup of sugar
  • 3 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes



  1. In a bowl add cornstarch, gradually add water while whisking. Beat eggs into cornstarch/water mixture.
  2. Add sliced steak strips and toss to coat. Pour 1 inch of oil into a wok, heat oil to 375 degrees or until oil is hot enough to fry the steak strips. Add a quarter of the steak strips at a time to the work. Separate with a fork and cook stirring frequently until crispy.
  3. Drain on paper towels. Repeat until all the steak is gone (*you can also use a deep fryer for this).
    Drain all oil out of the work except for 1 tablespoon. Add green onion, carrots, ginger, and garlic. Stir fry for 30 seconds-1 minute.
  4. In a small bowl combine soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, sugar, and red pepper flakes. Add to the wok and bring the mixture to a boil. Add beef, heat through and serve.
