    Units: US | Metric

    • 675 g tenderloin or 675 g steak fillets, cut into 3/4 inch cubes
    • salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
    • black pepper, coarsely crushed (I use 1 1/2 tsp)
    • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
    • 1 inch gingerroot, peeled and crushed
    • 1 stalk fresh lemongrass, chopped (6 inches of) or 1 tablespoon dried lemon grass, soaked in warm water for an hour and drained or 1 tablespoon grated fresh lemon rind
    • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 1 large onion, peeled and cut into 3/4 inch cubes


    1. 1
      Combine the meat,salt, sugar, garlic, ginger, lemon grass/ lemon rind, black pepper in a bowl.
    2. 2
      Rub the spices into the meat.
    3. 3
      Marinate for 1 hour atleast.
    4. 4
      Heat 2 tblsp oil in a cast iron pan till very hot (on high).
    5. 5
      Add the onion and saute briefly till slightly brown but limp (for abt a min) Remove and sprinkle a little salt on them (I omit this as I do not like too much salt and DH then adds some to his plate) Heat pan again with the remaining oil in it.
    6. 6
      Again when very hot put in the meat cubes in a single layer and cook on both sides (if you like it well cooked reduce heat to cook some more as the meat should not burn) Serve with the onions on top.

      I just made this for my husband, who is Vietnamese. While I was combining everything for the marinade, he came to the kitchen wondering what that good smell was. We really enjoyed this dish, and it was VERY easy to make. I think the only thing missing would be a little bit of fish sauce, but if you're not into that then you've got nothing to worry about.

      Both my husband and I really enjoyed this delicious recipe. The onions are incredibly sweet, I assume because of the way they are cut and that they cook so quickly. I marinated the beef 1 1/2 hours and it had so much flavor ! Thanks for posting this one, Fay !

      Delicious! This was a different way of marinating meat for me using a dry marinade but it worked out really well and the meat was tender and flavorful. Next time I will cut the steak in slices instead of cubes though -- just a personal preference. We had this witth Stir-fried Chinese Vegetables Stir-fried Chinese Vegetables for a delicious week-night meal. Thanks for sharing!
