Chinese Curried Beef & Potatoes

This came from a Chinese friend who was teaching Chinese cooking classes at the time. If you like curry then more curry powder can be used. I prefer it milder as is.

I really want to know how my favorite Chinese restaurants tenderize their meats. Whether it be pork, beef or chicken it's always so very tender and tasty. I could use a reply ASAP. Going to make chicken stir fry on Saturday.

Though I only used the sauce part of this recipe, I made a phenomenal tofu stew with it: very tasty and very easy to make. I cannot recommend this enough!

This is really awesome! Super easy and tasty. Followed the directions exactly, but added some corn to get in a bit of veggies. Also didn't bother serving on rice as the taters were enough for me. Thanks for sharing!
