  • Preparation
  • Total
    250g beef filled (sliced thinly)
    1 tbsp. soy sauce
    2 tsp. corn flour
    4 tbsp. cooking oil
    1 thumb sized ginger (sliced thinly)
    1 red onion (cut into wedges)

    2 tsp. soy sauce
    ½ cup water

4. Keep stirring and add water, snow peas and pinch of white pepper. Adjust seasoning if necessary.

5. Remove after the vegetables are cooked. This should take about 1 minute. Serve while piping hot!
