Fast dinner that was munched up happily & noisily. Served with plain steamed rice. Not hot - the ginger (i used 2 teaspoons fresh minced) & black pepper were lovely aromatic & tasty - sauteed ginger over highest heat w/rice wine & a teaspoon more soysauce. Then added pine nuts. Used a sliced sweet onion after the pine nuts & stir fried until onion edges just translucent & mostly still crispy. This recipe is one to tuck away for those dear friends/family who do not appreciate the wondes of garlic. I will definately make again - considering using coarsely chopped almonds next time for a bit more crunch. On the table in 15 minutes after starting the fire (10 minutes prep using 1/2 frozen bottom roast piece - sliced thin with a serrated knife then marinated). Thank you for this yummo & fast recipe Anemone!

This is so good! The sauce just has a gentle hint of spice and the beef just melts in the mouth. I used shallots instead of onions since onions don't always agree with me, as well as using dry sherry and fresh ginger for the sauce. It's a lot of work for the initial preparations but it is so worth it!
