1 lb beef sirloin or 1 lb leftover beef roast or 1 lb
leftover lamb roast
1 tablespoon rice vinegar or 1 tablespoon
apple cider vinegar
1 1/4 teaspoons
ground turmeric, divided
canola oil, divided
yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced, about 1 1/2 cups
1 1/2 tablespoons
minced fresh ginger
- If using raw beef, freeze 20 minutes and slice paper-thin. (I would buy beef sliced for bulgogi). Rub the beef with the vinegar, 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp turmeric. (With leftover roast, I omitted the salt, but used the turmeric and vinegar. I also sliced it somewhat thicker).
- Bring the whole potatoes to a boil in slightly salted water to cover. Boil for 5 minutes, then remove from heat and let sit in the hot water for 15 minutes. The potatoes will be perfectly done. (Or cook potatoes by your preferred method).
- Peel the potatoes and cut into 6 to 8 wedges each. Coat with the remaining 1/4 tsp turmeric and 1/4 tsp salt.
- Heat 3 tbl oil in a large wok and fry the onion and ginger until slightly softened.
- Add the cayenne and the marinated beef (I also added the marinade). Cook over high heat for 5 to 8 minutes or until tender. If not sufficiently tender, add 1/2 cup water and cook over medium-low heat until it's done to your likeness. (With the leftover roast, you really just want to get it warmed through, so watch your cooking time).
- Meanwhile, heat the remaining 3 tbl oil in a large skillet and gently fry the potato wedges over low heat (I used medium heat) until golden brown and crisp.
- Serve meat with the potato wedges. To be authentically Anglo-Indian, serve some ketchup on the side.
