Yield: 2 servings


  • 250 grams (9 ounces) tender cut of beef thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Shaoxing Wine (or dry sherry)
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon grated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon potato starch

  2. In a separate small bowl, combine the water, soy sauce and sugar and stir to combine.
  3. Add the sesame seeds to a sauté pan and heat over medium high heat. Toast the sesame seeds until they are golden brown, swirling them around the pan constantly to ensure they brown evenly.
