Spicy Beef Fillet With Capsicums 香辣牛柳炒三椒

I have to admit I haven't been too creative lately in my tiny kitchen, so it was a huge sense of achievement when I finally came up with a delicious dish that I can claim to be my own. Using some left over beef fillets we had, a packet of 3 different colour capsicums I came up with a dish that got the thumbs up by everyone. I also used the same dish as a topping for a bed of crispy noodles, it works really well and I am proud to share this with you!
P.S This id work well with chicken or pork.

serves 4 as part of a Chinese meal
you'll need;
300 g of beef fillets, sliced and marinated with dash of soy, sesame oil, cooking wine and corn starch
3/4 of a green capsicum, sliced
3/4 of a red capsicum, sliced
3/4 of a yellow capsicum, sliced
1/2 an onion, sliced
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 red chili, chopped
5 cm knob of ginger, chopped
2 tbs of chili bean paste
2 tbs of oyster sauce
2 tbs of sweet soy
1 tbs of light soy
1 tbs of sugar
dash of cooking wine
white pepper and salt to taste
coriander leaves as garnish

Prepare the ingredients.

Stir-fry vegetables in batches with a little oil on high heat for a minute, set aside.

Sear the marinated beef on high heat for 30 seconds, set aside.

Saute chopped ingredients then add in the seasonings for a minute or two.

Return vegetables and beef to the wok.

Stir-fry for another minute, thicken the sauce with some corn flour solution and check for seasonings.

Serve immediately with plenty of steamed rice.

Or it is equally delicious on a bed of crispy egg noodles.

  36. Hi Tummies! I made this dish last night and it was truly delicious. The perfect balance of sweetness and spicyness & just perfect for a cold Melbourne night! I cut back on the capsicums a bit and added some carrot as I just love it. Served on udon noodles and I ended up adding some fresh baby spinach to my bowl just for some greenery - weird but it worked. Thanks so much for posting your yummy recipe, it's gone straight to my 'keeper' file & I can't wait to try more dishes from your blog. Cheers, Beck.

  37. Thanks Beck I am glad you tried and liked the recipe. The best way is of course adjust to suit ur taste.
    Thanks for being my 600th follower too :)

  38. We had beef in the freezer and capsicum in the fridge, so we tried to make this dish yesterday. Yummy, delish, bursting with flavors. Thank you for sharing your recipes.

    We've also tried your wonton recipe. Delish too!!!
