Chinese Curried Beef & Potatoes

Recipe by Jen T

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.
