beef mince (ground beef)
finely grated ginger
dry chilli flakes (or to taste)
light soy sauce
(notes 1 & 4)
Mix together the beef, garlic, ginger, chilli flakes, soy sauce and kecap manis in a bowl. Cover and place in the fridge for ½ hour an hour.
Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat.
Add the beef mixture and fry, stirring regularly until it gets very brown and crispy. Once you hear it start crackling add the sesame oil and mix through.
Serve with greens and over steamed rice.
I use a standard Australian 20ml tablespoon (equivalent to 4 teaspoons worldwide)
You can substitute strips of beef, turkey, pork or chicken mince if you prefer.
You can also use fresh chilli or chilli paste if you prefer
If you don't have or can't find kecap manis, you can substitute by simmering equal ratios of soy sauce and palm sugar (or brown sugar) until thick.
Reader feedback from Kieran, suggested more sauce required. This is purposely a 'dry' stir fry to get the crisp texture but if you love a bit of sauce to drizzle over, try
Double or triple the soy, kecap manis and sesame
. Make the beef as per recipe and heat the additional sauce ingredients in a small saucepan to drizzle over. Not too much or it may turn out salty.
- a Japanese mayo - works beautifully with the recipe, since the creaminess works well with the umami flavours.
