Recipe Summary



Marinated Beef


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, combine the wine, ginger juice, cornstarch and white pepper. Add the beef and toss well. Set aside to marinate for 20 minutes.

  • Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl.

  • Set a wok or large skillet over high heat for 30 seconds. Add 1 teaspoon of the peanut oil and stir to coat the wok. When a wisp of white smoke appears, add the minced ginger and stir-fry for 10 seconds. Add the peppers and stir-fry for 45 seconds. Add 1 tablespoon of the stock and stir-fry until the peppers turn bright green, about 2 minutes. Transfer the peppers to a plate.

  • Return the wok to the burner and add the remaining 1 teaspoon peanut oil; stir to coat the wok. When a wisp of white smoke appears, add the black beans and garlic and stir-fry until fragrant, about 45 seconds. Add the beef and the marinade; spread the meat in an even layer and let cook undisturbed for 30 seconds. Turn the beef, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of stock and stir well.

  • Return the peppers to the wok and stir-fry for 1 minute. Make a well in the center of the wok, pushing everything up the sides slightly; stir the sauce and pour it in. Stir until the sauce boils and thickens, about 1 minute. Add a pinch of salt and serve hot.


To make 1/2 teaspoon of ginger juice, put 1 teaspoon of finely grated fresh ginger in a tea strainer and press to extract the juice.

Suggested Pairing

The right red for this savory beef? A medium-bodied Bordeaux, such as the 1993 ChÂteau PrieurÉ-Lichine or a lighter Australian Cabernet Sauvignon, such as the 1993 Chateau Tahbilk. Both have the depth of flavor and the acidity to stand up to the seasoning and bell peppers.
