Szechwan Beef



Fresh cilantro leaves (optional)

Cooking Sauce


  1. Cooking Sauce: Stir together all ingredients; set aside.
  2. Cut beef with the grain into 1 1/2-inch wide strips; then cut each strip across the grain into 1/8-inch thick slanting slices. Set aside. Place a wok over high heat; when wok is hot, add oil. When oil is hot, add chiles and cook, stirring, until chiles just begin to char. Remove chiles from wok; set aside.
  3. Add beef to wok and stir fry until browned (1 1/2 to 2 minutes); remove from wok and set aside. Add carrots to wok and stir fry until tender-crisp to bite (about 3 minutes). Add bamboo shoots and stir fry for 1 more minute.
  4. Return meat and chiles to wok; stir Cooking Sauce and add. Stir until sauce boils and thickens.
  5. Garnish with cilantro, if desired.

Makes 4 servings.
