.: 汁料 Sauce Mixture :.

.: 做法 Directions :.  
Step 1:

Marinade the beef with "Tony's Marinade Method" (do not add salt). Heat the non-sticky pan with 1 tbsp of oil over high heat. Stir-fry the beef until it is 70% cooked. Put it in sieve over a bowl. Put it aside.

Step 2:

Clean the pan and dry it well. Heat it again with 1/2 tbsp of oil over medium-high heat. Add in the garlic and onion with 1/3 tsp of salt. Stir-fry the ingredients until the onion is soft (about 2 minutes)

Step 3:
Add in the bitter melon, preserved radish and bell pepper.  Stir-fry the ingredients for 2 minutes.  Add in the hot water.  Turn the heat to medium.  Cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until the bitter melon is soft.

Step 4:

Add in the beef and the sauce mixture.  Mix it well and dish it up.  Serve it in hot.
.: 小貼士 Cook's notes :.
1- It is better to use tenderloin beef or even rib eyes as their texture is more soft and tender. It is also not recommended to marinade it with salt.
2- It is important to cut across the grain of the beef (

3- You can replace the sweet bean paste with hoisin sauce.
4- Taste the preserved radish before dicing it. Blanch it for 5-10 minutes if it is too salty.
5- Soak the diced bitter melon in salty water can reduce its bitter flavor.
