starch.)​
Preparation Steps:
Level of Difficulty:
Easy​
Time Needed:
Ingredients:
Ingredients:
12 oz. rump steak
2 tablespoons light
soy sauce
1 tablespoon dry
sherry
1 pc fresh ginger,
peeled & grated
1 clove garlic,
crushed
2 pinches of five-
spice powder (or
Mrs. Dash)
1 teaspoon chili
sauce
1 tablespoon oil
6 green onions,
sliced diagonally
1 small red pepper,
seeded & diced
8 crisp lettuce cups,
to serve
Sprigs of parsley, to
garnish​
Serves:
8​
Directions:
Cut steak into thin slivers and put in a bowl. Add
soy sauce, sherry, ginger, garlic, five-spice powder
and chili sauce. Mix well, then cover and marinate in
refrigerator for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Heat oil
in a large frying pan or wok. Add onion and red
pepper and stir-fry for 1 minute.

Add beef mixture to pan and stir-fry for 2-3
minutes, stirring all the time. Turn mixture into a
warm serving dish. Serve at once with chilled
lettuce cups, garnished with sprig of parsley.

To serve, simply spoon beef mixture into lettuce
cups and eat with the fingers. Serve with plenty of
napkins or finger bowls — it can be a little messy.

Note: If your stage of diet can handle an extra 2-3
carbs per serving, take the following extra step to
make mixture richer and thicker: Blend 1 tsp. corn or
potato starch smoothly with 1 teaspoon water and
add to pan. Cook an extra minute stirring constantly
to thicken.​
