Chinese Beef Strip Marinade
Cookin' Dad's recipes

1 1/2 lbs. 1" to 1 1/2" pencil-thin beef strips
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp. oyster sauce
1 tsp. sesame oil
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. red pepper
2 tsp. minced garlic
2 tsp. minced ginger
1 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tbsp. cornstarch (for tenderizing beef)
1 tbsp. veg oil
1 egg white
Approx. 2 cups broccoli or any crisp green vegetable

About 3 hrs. before preparation time, mix all marinade ingredients except cornstarch and egg white. Put beef strips in pyrex dish and pour marinade over them. Make sure all pieces have chance to be submerged in marinade. Next, gradually sprinkle cornstarch over beef, gently massaging it into meat. Place beef in refrigerator for about 3 hrs. Before you are ready to stir-fry beef, beat egg white until frothy. Place in beef mixture, making sure it is evenly-distributed.

Heat a couple of tablespoons of oil in wok and stir-fry vegetables. Remove from wok and set aside. Next, add a little oil and stir-fry beef mixture, being careful not to overcook it. The last step is to add the vegetables and mix together with beef mixture. Serve over white rice.
