A photographic food adventure

Hello hello! This recipe is exactly what it is, kinda like chinese black pepper steak but for the people who have random items in their pantry [and who doesn’t have pepper. I LOVE PEPPER]

As you know I love stirfry, its just so easy, especially on nights like tonight when I was rushing around trying to have dinner before a meeting. I was so speedy that I managed to cook, eat, have dessert AND do all the dishes within an hour [and ten minutes] BE IMPRESSED.

So here we go.

Ingredients
1 small piece of beef steak [the stir fry kind I guess? schnitzel could do also, but there is not a lot i know about meat to make that kind of judgement.]
half an onion
1 tsp crushed ginger paste
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp chilli powder
pepper to taste [depends on how much you like pepper. i put PLENTY in]
salt
soy sauce

Method
Slice the onion thinly, slice the beef into strips or chunks. [ignore the things in that picture that don’t belong…like the coffee. all mine. muahahaha]

Black Pepper Beef Stirfry (14)

Fry the onion and garlic in a little oil first [as you probably noticed, i start all my dishes like this.. and I am not even kidding, its how the dish tastes so good. Onion and garlic and ginger as a base make things ridiculously deeeeelish!!]

Black Pepper Beef Stirfry (2)

Turn down the heat [had a discussion about this with the flatmates the other day, i tend to start off cooking things on high and then lower the heat before they burn. Not quite sure why, but it works for me!]
Add the beef strips and brown [if they are thinner than what i had then you may need to cook them for a little longer]

Black Pepper Beef Stirfry (3)

Add the cumin, coriander, chilli powder, salt and pepper to taste. Add a tiny amount of water if it is too dry. Stir fry for about 5 minutes.

Black Pepper Beef Stirfry (4)

Add the soy sauce [and maybe more pepper] and continue frying until the beef is cooked through [or how you like it]

Black Pepper Beef Stirfry (12)

Serve on rice or noodles [and more pepper in my case] and enjoy!

Note: If i had any red capsicum, or any capsicum for that matter, i would totally add that in there. Feel free to add any vegetables you like into the stirfry, or on the side. I didnt actually bother with veggies today. Bad omnivore, Nurul!]
