I have made this before Here and it is a winner, it uses what ever steak you have
today I am using frying steak, which was 500g £4 from Iceland.
I am making a larger quantity than normal, as this will also feed Youngest for tomorrows lunch and 2 portions for the freezer for future lunches. So 6 large portions out of £4 of steak isn’t so bad 😉 I,m sure you could stretch it out further if needed.
I start by prepping everything, I am doubling this amount – slice a whole pack of spring onions, I slice these of the angle, set aside.
Slice the steak, I’m using double what I normally do at 500g, cut against the grain to make it more tender
I pop this into a freezer bag with 2 tablespoons of cornflour and shake to coat, leave for about 10 minutes. This bit is important, it’s called velveting and makes the meat very tender.
In a pan, over a low/medium heat start the sauce, add 2 tablespoons of Veg oil
Add a grated thumb size piece of ginger and a finely grated fat clove of garlic to the pan and gently fry then add 75ml soy sauce and 100ml water before the garlic burns.
Dissolve the 50g brown sugar in the sauce, then raise the heat to about medium and boil the sauce for 2-3 minutes until the sauce thickens. Turn off the heat, and set aside.
In the same pan, add a little veg oil, and fry the steak over a medium hot pan, adding the sliced spring onions as the steak starts to brown.
Then pour the sauce mix back into the pan, stir through it will bubble and thicken.
I’m serving with noodles and I am adding a veg spring roll, as Youngest loves them 😇
