The ingredients: thin-sliced flank steak, thinly sliced onions & green bell peppers, sliced ginger that was mashed, chili bean sauce, ketchup, vegetable oil, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, dry sherry, corn starch & salt.
The flank steak is marinated using the soy sauce, dry sherry & some of the ginger slices.
The sauce for this dish used chili bean sauce, ketchup, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, & soy sauce.
The marinated flank steak is on the wok which is at 550 egrees.
The beef is cooked until it is browned a bit, but not cooked through. It is drained and held in a bowl while the veggies are cooked.
The onions & peppers are stir-fried for about a minute until they begin to soften & brown.
The minute is up & the onions & peppers are done.
The broth has been added in & will be brought to a boil.
The ketchup mixture has now been added as well as some water & cornstarch.
The sauce has thickened and the dish is done.
The Sichuan beef was served with Yangchow fried rice & the Virginia Yee’s Dry Fried Sichuan String Beans.
The sichuan beef was excelent. The beef was tender & tasty, the sauce had thickened up nicely and was very flavorful. The onions had become very sweet. I am guessing the high heat caramelized them. All-i-all a very tasty dish with lots of flavors.
This 3 course stir-fry was a great success with my guests. There were no leftovers at all. Always a good sign.

For my third stir-fry I made another beef stir fry using flank steak. This time it was a Sichuan styled dish that was nowhere near as spicy as the Thai dish I'd made earlier in the week. I am going to let the pictures tell the story, but let me just say this dish came out excellently. The onions turned sweet from being stir-fried over high heat. The sauce was thick and tasty and the beef was tender and tasty.
