Stir Fried Beef and Black Bean

This quick-cook stir fried beef in back bean sauce is a quick and flavorsome way to cook beef while camping.

Black bean sauce is a common Asian flavor that uses fermented black beans as compared to many of the Western black bean dishes that are normal black beans so the flavor can be a little strong, don’t be tempted to add additional black bean sauce before tasting.

As the wok is so thin it is important to keep the food moving as it can quickly burn. This is a dish where it is important to make sure all the ingredients are prepared early.

Ingredients

Stir Fry

500g (1 pound) rump of fillet steak

1 onion

1 bell pepper

1 large carrot

2 cloves garlic

Black Bean Sauce

1 1/2 tablespoons fermented black bean sauce

1/4 cup beef stock or water

1 tablespoon dark soy sauce

1 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon cornflour (corn starch)

2 tablespoons water

To Cook

2 tablespoons peanut oil

1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

Equipment

small bowl

wok or skillet

Recipe Directions

  1. Trim any excess fat or similar from the beef then slice as thinly as possible.

    Tip: To get it as thin and tender as many restaurants par-freeze the beef so it can be cut thinner then use a meat mallet to bash/flatten each small piece of meat.

  2. Peel and/or seed the onion, bell pepper, and carrot then slice into equally sized strips. Finely dice the garlic.

  3. In the small bowl combine the black bean sauce, dark soy sauce, beef stock, and sugar. In a cup whisk with a fork the cornflour and water.

  4. Place the wok over hot heat, when hot add the peanut and sesame oil then swirl to cover the bottom of the wok.

  5. Add the beef and cook while stirring until it loses its redness then add the onion, bell pepper, and carrot. When the onion starts to become translucent add the garlic and stir through.

  6. Immediately add the black bean mix and stir through, when it starts to boil add the cornflour mix while continuing to stir. As soon as it is thickened and starts to boil again serve.
