  1. Slice the beef as thinly as possible. I recommend freezing briefly before slicing; the colder the easier to thin slice.
  2. Heat oil on med-hi heat.
  3. Brown beef in Wok for 1 minute.
  4. Slice 4 very thin pieces of the fresh pear and set aside for garnish.
  5. Add Pear, Scallions, Garlic, Soy Sauce, Honey, Curry, and Sesame Seeds.
  6. Stir-fry until golden, about 2-3 minutes or until fresh pear is soft.
  7. Garnish with pear and serve with steamed basmati rice.
