  • 150g Beef Frying Steak
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. Cornflour
  • 2 tsp. Runny Honey
  • 2 tbsp. White Rice Vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. Sweet Chilli Sauce
  • Splash Light Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 Garlic Clove, crushed
  • 1 Red Chilli, finely sliced
  • 1 Carrot, grated
  • 1 Spring Onion, finely sliced
  • Vegetable Oil, for deep frying


  1. First, slice the beef into thin strips, about 1cm thick.

  2. Mix the eggs, salt and cornflour together and coat the beef strips with the mixture.

  3. Heat the vegetable oil to around 180c, then add the beef strips to deep-fry. Once cooked, carefully add them to a wok or frying pan one at a time.

  4. After approx. 10 seconds, stir the pieces so that they don’t stick together. Cook for approx. 7 minutes or until brown and crispy. Remove them from the wok/frying pan and drain away the excess oil.

  5. Using some of the vegetable oil from your frying, fry the garlic, chilli, carrot and spring onion.

  6. Finally, add the honey, white rice vinegar, light soy sauce, sweet chilli sauce and beef to the wok/frying pan and toss everything together.

  7. Serve with rice or noodles.
