Stir Fried Beef With Ginger

"This is a very simple but tasty recipe for ginger beef. I like to add 3 cloves of garlic minced but that is optional. White wine or apple juice can be substituted for the Sherry but Sherry is best"

  1. I and the family really liked this one... well done!
  2. This was wonderful-so simple to make! My daughter, who usually dislikes chinese, devoured this tasty beef.
  3. Bergy Bergy Bergy, this is the perfect dish...easy fast and delicious! I used rump steak and added the garlic...on the plates in 15 it!
  4. Following Bergy's suggestion for using both garlic and sherry, I served this with a small bowl of rice and Geema's ASPARAGUS AND CASHEW STIR FRY (#63469). I shall be doing this recipe often. (I shall be doing BOTH recipes often!)
  5. This didn't work very well for us. I used about 1.5 lb beef and the rest of the ingredients & instructions as written. The beef was swimming in oil and had to be drained and the taste seemed fairly bland. DH did like it.


On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
