Crispy Beef and Vegetables
Use uncooked shelled prawns instead of the beef. Cook them in exactly the same way.
You can omit the sugar, if you like. It's not essential, and the dish will still taste great.
Put the cornflour and eggs in a mixing bowl, season with salt and black pepper, and mix together well. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a wok, dip the beef into the cornflour mixture, coat well, then add to the wok a few pieces at a time. Add more oil, if you need to. Cook for 2 minutes, or until crispy and golden. Remove with a slotted spoon and put to one side.
Wipe out the wok with kitchen paper and heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in it. Add the spring onions, chillies, and garlic and cook for a few seconds, stirring all the time. Add the sugarsnap peas and pak choi and stir-fry for 2–3 minutes. Add the soy sauce, Chinese cooking wine, and sugar and cook until the sugar has dissolved and the alcohol has evaporated. Return the meat to the pan, toss together well, then serve with rice.
