Sha Cha Beef
Sha Cha Beef is simple and tasty! Often labeled on its packaging as “Chinese BBQ Sauce” in English, shacha sauce is a mixture of shallots, garlic, seafood, and chilies that yields a savory, vaguely seafood-y, umami laden condiment perfect for stir-fries. Easy beef stir fried with an underrated ShaCha Sauce
- Prep Time: 10
- Cook Time: 6
- Total Time: 16
- 1 pound beef (450g, thinly sliced against the grain; can use flank steak or sirloin)
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce (plus 1 tablespoon)
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- Vegetable oil
- 1–2 tablespoons ginger (minced)
- 3 cloves garlic (thinly sliced)
- 2 tablespoons Sha cha Sauce
- 2 teaspoon sugar
- 5 scallions (cut on an angle into 2-inch lengths)
- To the beef, add 1 teaspoon soy sauce, 2 teaspoons cornstarch and 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Mix well. Heat your wok over high heat until smoking. Add 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, and sear the beef until it just turns opaque (it can still be slightly pink). Remove the beef from the wok and set aside.
- Reduce the heat to medium, and add another couple tablespoons of oil to the wok. Add the ginger and cook for 1 minute. Add the garlic, sacha sauce, and sugar, and fry this mixture for 2 minutes.
- Add the scallions and beef back to the wok, along with the remaining tablespoon of soy sauce. Increase the heat to high, and stir-fry for 1 minute, until the scallions are wilted.
