2 tbsp Cognac, or brandy [optional] 30 mL
2 tbsp cornstarch 16 g
2 tsp sugar 8 g
2 tsp gingerroot, grated 9 g
1 onions, coarsely chopped 200 g
1 green peppers, cut into squares 150 g
1 clove garlic, minced or pressed

Before you start

You will need a wok or frying pan.

Put the serving dish in the oven at the lowest setting to keep the vegetables warm while the meat cooks.

Method

  1. Slice the meat into strips ½ to 1 cm wide and about 5 cm long. Mix with the soy sauce, Cognac or brandy (optional), cornstarch, sugar, and a bit of grated ginger. Chill for at least an hour in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat the oven to the lowest setting.
  3. Prepare the vegetables. Coarsely chop the onion, cut the pepper into squares, and mince or press the garlic.
  4. Heat ½ to 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying-pan or wok. Add the garlic, onion, bell pepper, and chili pepper. Add a little salt and cook about 5 min until they start to soften, taking care not let them burn. Add the frozen vegetables and stir-fry 4-5 min, until translucent but still crunchy. Set the vegetables aside on the warmed serving plate in the oven.
  5. Add the remaining oil and the marinated meat. Reserve the remaining marinade. Stir constantly over medium heat 5-7 min until the meat is almost cooked. Put the vegetables back into the wok and add the remaining grated ginger. Stir in the reserved marinade. Cook another 2 min. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve.
