  • Onion - 1 lrg, sliced
  • Chilies/capsicum - 1 cup, sliced (seeded if heat is not preffered)

  • 2. Heat oil in a pan, add the beef and saute on high heat for 4-5 min, till cooked through, remove from the pan and set aside.
  • 3. Add the onions and peppers to the pan, with some black pepper and tasting salt. Add a splash of oil if required, however you should not need to. Saute on high heat till the onions are browned on the edges a bit, but still crispy.
  • 4. Return the beef strips to the pan. Stir to combine and saute for 2-3 min on high heat.
  • 5. In a bowl mix 1/2 cup of ice cold water with the corn starch and 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1 tsp soy sauce and 1/2 tsp tasting salt. Whisk to combine smoothly.
