Stir-Fried Cucumbers with Beef Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4

250 g lean rump

2 green cucumbers

2 teaspoons sesame oil

1 tablespoon light soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted and crushed

Salt to taste

 

Method :

To ensure that the beef is firmed enough to be cut into paper-thin slices, freeze it for a short period. The slices should be about 5 cm long and 12 mm wide. Place the sliced beef in a bowl and add the sesame oil, salt, sugar, soy sauce and cayenne pepper. Mix well with the hand for the seasonings to penetrate the meat well. Peel the cucumbers, leaving a thin strip of green skin at intervals for decorative effect. To do that you can use a fork to scrape the form that pattern. Cut in halves lengthways. Remove the seeds and cut crossways into medium-thin slices.

 

Heat the wok with oil, add the beef and stir fry on high heat for about 1 minute. Add cucumber and toss for another 1 minute. Let the mixture simmer until cucumber is half cooked. It should be tender but still crisp. Garnish with sesame seeds and serve hot with steamed white rice.
