Sorry but I couldn't tell you, I am still learning cuts and techniques myself.

But it ended up in a square cut, I would have prefferd to cut it into strips though it didn't work out.

I hope you don't mind me asking but what is your recipe, if you don't want to say that's fine I am just wanting to try some different recipes.

Julian,

I used top sirloin, since it was on sale at my market, cheaper than round steak, cut thinly into 3" long strips. I mixed a couple of tablespoons of cornstarch, a tablespoon or so of water and about a half teaspoon of garlic powder, then tossed the steak to coat. I stir fried the steak in about a tablespoon of oil until it was medium-rare to medium, then took it out and set it aside. I stir fried about a half-pound (4 cups or so) of broccoli florets and a quarter of a large Vidalia onion cut pole-to-pole in another tablespoon of oil and when the broccoli was still a bit crisp, added a mixture of a tablespoon of cornstarch, a third cup of soy sauce, two tablespoons of brown sugar, a half-teaspoon of ground ginger and a half cup of water. I let it thicken, then added the beef back.

I'm sorry I didn't take pictures, maybe next time.

I slice up some beef and add some soy sauce and black bean sauce, then stirfry it briefly. Remove it from the pan.
I toss chopped garlic and ginger in some hot neutral oil and then add the broccoli and sliced onion. After getting it hot I add some water and soy sauce for steam and cover for a few, then add the cow and a bit of corn starch in water to thicken, but that last is optional.
Hoisin is another option for black bean sauce. A little dry sherry works too.

All these recipes sound great, and if I hadn't just eaten, I would be all over this. I also like to add a bit of oyster sauce to mine as well.

Well played :groucho:


Could you tell me why you tossed your meat in the cornstarch? Thanks!

I find that it browns better and the chicken pieces don't stick together as much.
