This is a fairly quick meal to make. It can easily be made in 20-30 minutes and most of that is simmer time. It has flavor but is not "hot" spicy. Stir fried veggies would go great with this dish.
1/4 cup olive or corn oil
Dash of crushed red pepper (I don't use this)
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp ginger powder or 6 slices of fresh ginger chopped
1 tsp garlic powder or 2 cloves of fresh crushed garlic
1 lb thinly sliced top chuck steak, flank or sirloin
1/2 cup dry cooking sherry
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
Get all ingredients ready. Slice steak into 2" x 1" x 1/8" pieces and set aside. Heat sauce pan until hot. Add oil, red pepper, paprika and ginger. Fry until pepper turns slightly brown (do not overcook, it will burn fast). Add the garlic and beef. Stir until all of the beef changes color. Add sherry, soy sauce, salt and sugar. Cover and stir occasionally over a medium-high heat for about 20 minutes or until the sauce is almost gone.
Serve over your favorite type of rice.
