I am a big fan of chinese food and where i live there aren't any chinese shops. I was searching the internet and found a recipe for peking chicken. Personally I am a fan of peking beef so I made a few changes to the recipe and it turned out to be absolutely beautiful. Note this recipe is a bit saucier than what you would get from a chinese shop.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all of the marinade ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Make sure you mix them well.
  2. Put meat into mixture and cover. Refridgerate for 2 hours.
  3. Heat frypan over medium heat. Add oil. When oil is hot add marinaded meat. Leave frypan at medium heat until beef is cooked.
  4. When meat is cooked turn the frypan down to a simmer. Sauce should start to thicken up within 10 minutes.
  5. If you are still not happy with the consistency you can add a bit more corn flour. Remember to mix it with water first.

I reduced the five spice as per previous reviewer and it was fine :)

Unfortuatly this recipe had way to much five spice in it for us. I think maybe 1tsp would have been ample for this recipe. I did ads more hoisin sauce as it was cooking but it was too late. sorry Made for Sping PAC 2008
