This is an easy beef and bell pepper dish that tastes like Chinese Restaurant faire. I got this out of a cookbook that was so worn from use, that it fell apart. I serve this with steamed rice and homemade wonton soup. I never have any leftovers.
Thinly slice beef. Toss beef, 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, the cornstarch, salt, 1 teaspoon soy sauce, the sugar and white pepper in bowl. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes. Cut green onions into 2-inch pieces. Cut green pepper into 1/8-inch strips.
Heat wok or skillet over high heat. Add 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Add beef, ginger root and garlic; stir-fry until beef is brown, about 3 minutes. Add green pepper, carrot and chili paste; stir-fry 1 minute. Stir in green onions and 1 tablespoon soy sauce; cook and stir 30 seconds.
