Sauteed Beef Strips

Sauteed Beef Strips

1 lb. beef fillet, or boneless sirloin
2 tsp. salt, or to taste
1/2 tsp. garlic, chopped
1 T. soy sauce
1 tsp. ground roasted sesame seed
1/2 tsp. fresh ginger, chopped
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. sesame oil
3 tsp. flour
5-6 scallions, white part only
2 c. vegetable oil, for deep-frying
1/4 tsp. powdered hot red chili
1/2 tsp. MSG, optional
1/4 tsp. vinegar

Wash the beef, and cut into 2x1x1/8" slices. Marinate
with 1 tsp. of the soy sauce, the ginger, 1/4 tsp.
of the MSG, optional, and the sesame oil, for 10 mins.

Cut the scallions in half crosswise, then quarter
each lengthwise into 4 strips. Set aside.

Make a dipping sauce by mixing together the
remaining 2 tsp. soy sauce, and 1/4 tsp. MSG,
the chili powder, vinegar, ginger, garlic,
and sesame seeds.

Beat the eggs. Add the flour, and enough water to
make a paste. String the beef strips and scallion,
alternating, on bamboo or metal skewers. Coat with
the egg paste.

Heat the oil in a pan to moderately hot, about 230F,
and fry beef in a little oil, on both sides, until golden
-brown. Remove, drain, and serve with the sauce.
