Not authentic at all, but good! I cannot recall where I found this recipe but it has been a favorite over the years. It has great flavor and is fast to put together...perfect for week night meals!

I've haunted Asian markets for ingredients for years & have never made such a perfect Szechuan beef entree. Fast, cheap & tasty. Using Angostura brand soy sauce cut the sodium to a safe level for Ron, making this an acceptable main dish for renal diabetics. Also, since I didn't have sherry, I used white wine (real, not the cooking stuff). Thank you SO much for posting this!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut beef into thin slices (I do this when slightly frozen for more ease).
  2. Mix soy sauce, chili sauce, sherry, cornstarch, ginger, and pepper flakes in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Heat 1 T. oil in a wok. Add garlic and onions, stir fry 1 minute.
  4. Remove to a bowl with a slotted spoon. Add remaining oil to wok.
  5. Add meat a 1/3 at a time, stir frying until it loses it's red color.
  6. Place in bowl with onions.
  7. Add chili mixture to wok, heat until bubbly hot. Stir in meat and onion mixtures, stirring until sauce coats meat and onions and is warmed through.
  8. Serve over rice.
