30 Minute Ginger Beef

30 Minute Ginger Beef



1 pound skirt steak, sliced thinly (flank steak or beef tenderloin will work too)

1 cup cornstarch

2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for frying

1 large white onion, finely chopped

1 1/2 cups carrots, julienned (can use grated or shredded carrots too)

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated

1/2 teaspoon dried red chili flakes

1/2 cup light soy sauce

2 tablespoons vinegar (rice vinegar or white vinegar)

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 cup brown sugar, lightly packed

2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted

1/4 cup green onions, thinly sliced


  1. Toss the steak with the corn starch in a large bowl and set aside.
  2. Over medium heat, add the vegetable oil and onions to a sauce pan. Sauté for two minutes until onions are translucent.
  3. Add the carrots to the onions and sauté for 3-4 minutes until tender.
  4. Next, add the garlic, ginger, and chili flakes. Stir into the carrots and onions. Cook for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Lastly, add the soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, black pepper, brown sugar, and sesame seeds. Whisk together.
  6. Lower the heat to a simmer and allow the sauce to slightly thicken.
  7. In the meantime, bring about 2-3 cups of vegetable oil to optimum frying temperature in a deep skillet. Shake the excess corn starch off the beef and fry each piece in batches until crispy. This process takes about 3-4 minutes. Drain the fried beef on paper towels.
  8. Toss the fried beef with the sauce mixture. Garnish with green onions. Serve immediately.
