I rarely make deep fried food at home but if I do, this is Chinese crispy beef is my go-to dish. This dish reminds me of the rainbow beef I usually get from the Chinese takeaway but you know what, this one is so much better!
Well, just because I cooked it. *wink*
It was simply because this was made at home. Oh yeah, home cooked food is the king over here in Fuss Free Cooking HQ!
Aside from deep frying being the challenging part of this dish, the rest was pretty much an easy peasy process especially the SAUCE. A concoction of balsamic vinegar, brown sugar and tamari (or soy sauce) – yes, there’s a bit of East meets West happening here! The original recipe calls for Chinese black rice vinegar, but balsamic vinegar worked just as well.
As you can imagine, the sweet, savoury and sticky sauce mingled with lightly battered crispy beef, this dish does not disappoint. Enjoy!
