Crispy Peking Beef Recipe Instructions

Start by thinly slicing rump steak, cutting with the grain. Your meat cuts need to be very thin otherwise it will not be crisp enough.

Next, place in a bowl, add egg and mix to coat meat thoroughly. Once coated, remove and set aside. Discard any remaining egg.

Now in another bowl, add meat and Tapioca Flour. Using clean hands, mix well so all meat is coated.

Heat oil in a wok or deep pan. To test the heat, place the handle end of a wooden spoon into the oil. If it bubbles, it’s ready. Now, add meat strips in batches.

Swirl oil gently with a slotted spoon to ensure the meat doesn’t stick or clump. You need to be patient when cooking this as each batch will take approx 12-15 minutes.

Remove each batch and drain on paper towels. Don’t worry if it cools a little as we’ll be adding it back in later. It should be nice and crispy to the touch. Drain oil and clean wok.

To Make The Sauce

Heat 1 tbsp of oil in the wok. Then, add ginger and stir until fragrant Next, add carrot, onion, Capsicum chili, and minced chili.

Stir until onion is slightly wilted.

Now add hoisin sauce, tomato ketchup, sugar, and rice wine vinegar. Stir well until sugar is dissolved and sauce is simmering.

Add meat back in and toss to ensure all meat is thoroughly coated. Spoon into serving bowls. Garnish with spring onion, chili slices, and sesame seeds.

NOTE: you will get the best results using tapioca flour
