DIRECTIONS

  • Mix marinade ingredients in a bowl, stir through steak cubes to coat well and marinate for 30-60 minutes.
  • For the sauce heat oil in a large saucepan and lightly saute the onion and garlic until soft.
  • Remove from heat, add all other sauce ingredients and mix well. At this stage if you like you can place the sauce in the refrigerator for later.
  • Heat oil in a wok or frypan and cook beef until done to your liking, it won't be cooked much further so make sure it is done but being cubed it doesn't take long to cook.
  • Return sauce to medium heat and stir until sauce starts to thicken. Allow it to bubble but not boil hard, this step will take about 5 minutes.
  • Place cooked beef in the saucepan and warm through and mix for a few minutes.
  • Serve over cooked plain rice with generous lashings of the sauce.
