    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 6 ounces boneless beef shoulder, trimmed, frozen 30 minutes to 1 hour
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 3 large garlic cloves, crushed
    • 2 tablespoons garlic, chopped
    • 1 egg white
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
    • 5 teaspoons sugar
    • 1 teaspoon peanut oil
    • 4 cups peanut oil, for deep-frying
    • 3/4 teaspoon cornstarch
    • 2 tablespoons thin soy sauce
    • 2 tablespoons shaoxing wine or 2 tablespoons dry sherry
    • 2 teaspoons chinese black vinegar or 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
    • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
    • 1 teaspoon Chinese sesame paste
    • 1/4 lb pencil-thin asparagus tips (top 4 inches only)
    • 1/2 small red bell pepper, very thinly sliced
    • 4 dried red chili peppers
    • 3 scallions, chopped
    • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, chopped

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Slice steak into broad 1/8-inch thick strips, about 1 inch wide and 6 inches long. In a small bowl combine steak strips with baking soda, crushed garlic cloves and 1/4 cup cold water. Mix well and soak 5 hours.
    2. 2
      Rinse steak slices and dry well on paper towels. In a small bowl mix together egg white and salt, stirring vigorously until egg white foams. Stir in sesame seeds, 1 teaspoon sugar, 1 teaspoon peanut oil and cornstarch. Add steak and toss to coat. Marinate 1/2 hour at room temperature. In another small bowl, combine thin soy sauce, Shao Hsing, remaining 4 teaspoons sugar, vinegar, sesame oil and sesame paste; set aside.
    3. 3
      In a wok, heat remaining 4 cups peanut oil over high heat to 375°F Drain beef, pat dry then deep-fry 45 seconds, turning pieces several times with a metal spoon. Using a slotted spoon, remove beef and drain on paper towels. When oil returns to 375F, deep-fry 15 seconds more, remove beef, and drain. Repeat deep-frying, 15 seconds, a third time. Remove beef and drain on clean paper towels. When oil returns to 375 degrees, deep-fry asparagus and red bell pepper 30 seconds. Drain on paper towels.
    4. 4
      Drain off all but 1 tablespoon oil from wok and increase heat to high. Add chili peppers, scallions, chopped garlic and chopped ginger; stir-fry 1 minute. Add asparagus and red pepper; stir-fry 10 seconds and add beef. Stir in soy sauce mixture, bring to a boil and serve immediately with rice.
