An old favorite of my mother from a Chinese cooking class. Don't ask me if it's authentic - I don't know. But it is quick, easy and delicious. Serve over hot rice, with broccoli and broiled pineapple.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut beef into thin, 2 inch strips.
  2. Combine soy sauce, Chinese wine or Bourbon, sugar, garlic, ginger root and cornstarch, and pour over beef; let marinate in refrigerator for at least one hour.
  3. Heat oil very hot in skillet; sear beef pieces quickly by tossing in pan and stirring frequently.
  4. Do not overcook.
  5. Beef should be cooked only about 5 minutes.

Simple but complex and rich. Tenderloin is much softer than the beef I usually stir-fry; it was almost melty. I didn't marinate as long as it says, but it was still good.
