Beef stir-fried in black pepper sauce is a typical Cantonese cuisine. Beautifully seared slices of beef, sweet spring onions, and crisp capsicums coated in a glaze made of Chinese sauce essential ingredients which are surprisingly rich in umami flavour. This dish has a perfect balance of tastes, textures, and colours that are sharply accented by the complex heat of the crushed peppercorns.

Method

Black Pepper Beef Stir Fry

1

Put the black peppercorns in a mortar and use a pestle to crack the peppercorns coarsely. Set aside.

2

In a bowl, whisk the oyster sauce, Shaoxing wine, soy sauce, sesame oil, and most of the black pepper (saving a little to garnish). Set aside.

3

Heat a cast-iron skillet over high heat until hot. Add the cooking oil, and garlic and cook for 1 minute. Keep it moving so the garlic doesn't burn. Using tongs, add the beef in a single layer. Cook the beef one minute then flip over and cook another minute. Add the bell pepper and sliced white part of spring onion. Stir-fry, tossing the contents of the pan periodically to ensure everything cooks evenly.

4

Add black pepper sauce and sliced green part of spring onions, and toss everything together until the black pepper beef is shiny and evenly coated with sauce.

5

Serve with rice. Garnish with the remaining black pepper (to taste). Enjoy!
