    Pepper Monkey's Note:

    My Chinese roommate taught me to make this yummy dish. Mostly because she got tired of making it for me as I can't get enough of it. This is so good and your house will be filled with wonderful smells. If you like garlic this is a must.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 -2 lb lean steak, sliced thinly into one inch long pieces. (i usually get the presliced "stir fry" steak at my grocery)
    • 1 bunch gai lan (about 2-3lbs, can be found in farmers market or ethnic grocer. Its a large leafy vegetable that tast)
    • 6 teaspoons fish sauce
    • 6 teaspoons sesame oil
    • 6 teaspoons soy sauce
    • 4 -6 fresh garlic cloves, chopped finely (must be fresh, not jarred)


    1. 1
      Combine sauces and oil and marinate beef in them for about 30 minutes.
    2. 2
      It should cover all of the beef.
    3. 3
      If not add more in even amounts.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile wash gai lan well and cut into three to four inch pieces.
    5. 5
      (Note: seems to taste better when leaves and stalks are attached) 5-A Boil a large pot of water 5-B When water boils drop pieces of gai lan into boiling water and remove when desired softness.
    6. 6
      (I like mine a little crispy) Heat a frying pan or wok over medium high heat.
    7. 7
      When pan is hot, sauté garlic in about 1 tsp of oil until just lightly browned.
    8. 8
      Be careful-- this will sizzle a lot.
    9. 9
      When garlic is browned dump in the beef with marinade and sauté until done.
    10. 10
      Serve over steamed rice, and Chinese broccoli.
    11. 11
      Use remaining sauce with rice and veggie.
    12. 12
      NOTE: This might be too salty for some. I suggest using a lite soy sauce instead of regular to reduce the salt content some.

      I found this to be tasty, but far too salty. I suppose I should have noticed the salt content in the nutritional information. I like salt, but this was too much for me. I agree that ginger would make a nice addition to this recipe, although I don't think I will be making it again.

      This was a quick, easy, and tasty meal. I followed the recipe exactly and found that it was a tad too salty for our tastes and I will probably decrease the soy sauce and sesame oil next time (and there will definitely be a next time). :) That is just our personal preference, otherwise the combo of ingredients was very good. I think it would be wonderful to add some ginger as well. Overall, it is a very adaptable recipe and nice flavor. Thanks!
