Ginger and Scallions Beef (姜葱牛肉) is a quick and satisfying stir fry. Beef cooks quickly so the actual cooking is only about 10 minutes. The secret to making the beef slices tender in a stir fry like this is brisk cooking, buying a good cut (such as tenderloin) … and baking soda! Yes, baking soda can be used as a natural meat tenderizer and this extra step makes a world of difference to the texture of the cooked beef.

I bought ready-sliced beef from my supermarket which takes away most of the effort of preparing this dish. I like to whip this up when I don’t have much time to cook dinner (half hour to cook one rice, one meat dish and one vegetable dish).

        Judging by shariffah’s name, my guess is she is Muslim, as I am. We don’t consume alcohol. So is there really an alternative to the Chinese wine ingredient? Thanks!

          There is really no need to substitute the wine taste which is subtle and for those who grew up being familiar with the taste in their stir-fries. I know not all Chinese families add Chinese wine to their cooking. So it is fine to omit it, will not break the taste of the dish.

      It’s for tenderizing the meat. It’s up to you depending on how much time you have, I would marinade it for at least 30 minutes or a few hours in the fridge.
