Stir Fried Shredded Beef (From my friend Moureen)


I always admire ladies who are able to coordinate their lives even with a super busy schedule. My friend Moureen is definitely someone who can balance being a great Mom and run a successful frozen yogurt business, while still cook hot meals on a daily basis! I had lunch with her and another good friend yesterday at a wonderful new Japanese restaurant called Keeper’s, of course the topic of my blog came up, so I begged her to contribute her recipes on a more regular basis (as if she doesn’t have enough to do already right?). Well what do you know, she sent me step by step photos of one of her little boy’s favorite dish tonight, I will have to give this a try very soon!

3/4 lbs of beef
Corn starch to coat
salt and pepper to taste
1 carrot
Direction: 1) Slice beef thinly and cut it into julienne size. Coat the beef with corn starch. Sieve it to remove excess corn starch and deep fry in a hot oil until crispy (about 3 mins or so). Deep fry it in 2 batches. Make sure oil is hot! Set it aside. 2) Julienne cut the carrot and set it aside.
3 cloves of garlic minced.
5 slices of ginger
1 tsp of szechuan hot and spicy sauce (optional)
1 tbs of oyster sauce
1 tsp of sugar
1/2 tsp of salt (szechuan sauce is already salty)
3 tbs of water
Direction: Sautee garlic and ginger. Add the hot and spicy sauce. Toss in the beef and carrot. Add the oyster sauce and water. Cook for another 2 mins and serve.

    So few ingredients (apart from the seasonings I think I always have) and such a yummy-looking dish!!!! I am impressed and keep it in mind for the next time I will be wondering what to do with ground beef… Thanks for sharing!

      My friend Moureen is a very talented cook, she’s Chinese though from Indonesia, so her cooking is a lot more flavorful compare to Chinese cooking. I hope you will enjoy this recipe!

      Hi Lyn! Yes Moureen is definitely super, as are you! After looking at your postings, I was inspired to beautify my little girl’s dinner plate last night, will post when I get a chance. Have a great day!

  3. It’s nice you have a good friend who can cook. We have to thank Maureen for today’s quick and yummy recipe! 😉 Thanks Maureen and we look forward to your recipe here. And is it possible to make frozen yogurt at home? I’m guessing it’s not…but it’s our family’s favorite and we eat at least once a week or maybe once every other week at a shop down the hill…anyway, this looks delicious and look forward to your next recipe. Have a great weekend Cindy and Maureen!

      Thank you Nami! Moureen runs a successful frozen yogurt shop called Fruity Yogurt, it’s the kind of place where you get your own cup, fill it up with the flavor yogurt you want, then sprinkle topping on. Too bad I am lactose sensitive so we don’t get to visit often. Hope you and your family are feeling much better, Have a wonderful Memorial Weekend!

  4. Wow, this looks so good that I’d love to make it immediately! (It’s past midnight and I don’t have ground beef, but tomorrow! ;))
