  • Summary

    This is a typical Sichuan technique for dry-frying beef. Unlike most meat stir-fries, the beef is not marinated; instead it is stir-fried immediately then cooked for a few minutes longer to intensify the beef flavors and to give give the meat a slightly chewy texture. Even the carrots and celery are stir-fried until they are “dried.” The result is a dish that is a little salty, fiery, and peppery, with a touch of sweetness from the vegetables. I advise using only a wok for this stir-fry. The “dry” technique burns the seasonings into a skillet, making it difficult to wash.

    Ingredients

    • 12 ounces lean flank steak
    • 3 tablespoons peanut or vegetable oil
    • 2 cups julienned carrots
    • 1 cup julienned celery
    • 3 small dried red chilies, snipped on one end
    • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
    • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
    • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
    • 2 scallions, finely shredded
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
