Ginger Beef: Submitted by: George Hoge | Date Added: 4 Jan 2014
Listed in: Starters

•1 lb. Beef Steak or Roast. Use inexpensive Cuts. Flank, Sirloin, Inside or Outside Round.
•3/4 cup cornstarch (Reduced Amount Works)
•1/2 cup water (Reduced Amount Works)
•2 eggs (1 Egg Works)
•1 large carrot, julienned. (Can also add small strips of Green Pepper for colour and flavour)
•3 green onions, chopped (Small with green stems) OR 1/4 cup diced cooking onions
•1/4 cup fresh ginger, minced
•5 garlic cloves, minced
•1 tablespoon cooking oil
•1 tablespoon sesame oil
•4 tablespoons rice vinegar OR regular vinegar OR vinegar and wine
•3 tablespoons soy sauce
•1/2 cup sugar (I mixed white and cane sugar)
•3 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes, to taste (depends if you like mild, medium or hot!)

Cooking Instructions

1. Trim excess fat from the beef and Cross Cut into narrow strips up to 2 ½ inches long. (Cross Cutting the Grain yields more tender meat) Note: Chilled or Partially Frozen Beef is easier to slice
2. Place cornstarch in a medium size bowl
3. Add water gradually while whisking
4. Beat eggs into cornstarch mixture
5. Toss in beef and stir to coat
6. Pour 1 Tbsp cooking oil into Actifry
7. Pick Beef out of egg mixture, put into Actfry and cook for approximately 20 minutes or until crispy. (If you dump the whole mixture in, you might get strips of corn bread floating around but you might also get a thicker coating on the Beef. - Still working on this one) At first, the beef tends to go around in a big glob, but eventually starts breaking up into individual pieces. You may need to separate some of the strips of beef with a soft utensil. (chop sticks if you are talented)
8. Remove Beef and Set Aside
9. In Actifry combine 1 tablespoon Sesame Oil, Carrots, Onion, Ginger, and Garlic. Cook Briefly depending on how you like your Carrots. (5 minutes?)
10. Add the last 4 ingredients to the vegetable mixture. (To Thicken Sauce you can add a small amount of Corn Starch / Water mixture)
11. Bring Sauce to in Actifry to a boil, then add Beef
12. Heat until the Beef is completely coated in the sauce and the sauce has thickened

Made this recipe for my hubby who gave it two thumbs way up. I did reduce where the author indicated and 1.5 times the sauce. It was a big hit. Thanks George. Left by: Cheri (26 Jan 2014)

It would be great if you could post the actual recipe that for you is tried and true. "Reduced amount works" and "or use something else" makes it difficult for less adventurous cooks. Left by: Karen (5 Jan 2014)
