Fried Brandy Beef With Celery……that’s so delicious with just plain white rice. That’s what we had for dinner yesterday, together with another dish of stir fried vegetables. It’s simple but yet a very satisfying meal. I’m not very good in cooking beef but I’m rather happy with this dish. My recipe to share here:

Ingredients A (to marinade)
500g beef (sliced into strips)
3T soya sauce
3T sweet chili sauce
1T sesame oil
4T brandy (I use Martell)
1T corn flour
1T Peking duck sauce

Mix everything together and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. Note: I used beef frying steaks which came in thin slices and pounded. After cutting the beef into strips, I washed them, hopefully to get rid of as much additives as possible. Drain dry before adding the marinade.

Add the sliced celery. Give a quick stir and dish up. Serve immediately with hot plain rice. Enjoy your fried brandy beef with celery.

I have a bottle of cheap brandy that needs using up - never thought of applying it to Chinese cuisine! Thanks!

What is Peking duck sauce? Is that hoisin sauce? I love celery. I love beef too but I don’t eat it that often but I love stir-fried sate beef with onions. This is similar to may father’s cooking.

Hi, thanks for all your comments.

Su-Lin, that’s where all those bottles of wine in my house end up…haha. I receive lots and so I use lots in my cooking.

Divina, Peking sauce is not the same as hoisin sauce. You can have a look at the picture here http://www.keeplearningkeepsmiling.com/2009/08/07/best-peking-chicken-for-dinner/

i hv weakness on cooking beef in chinese way.
i’ve always made tough beef stir-fry!
any tricks?

Mary  on September 15th, 2009

lululu, thanks for adding. I find the trick to avoid tough beef when cooking the Chinese way is to slice the beef thinly accross the grain and then add corn flour to it when you marinade the beef. That’s what I do for this recipe. Give a try.

Looks delicious Mary. :-)

The link didn’t lead me to the Peking duck sauce. Can you upload it again. Thanks.

Mary  on September 16th, 2009

Jeena, thanks for your comments.

Divina, so sorry for the mistake. Have corrected it. Thanks very much for checking that out for me.

Ah, Lee Kum Kee Brand. I thought it’s the same with hoisin sauce. Does it taste sweet and salty?
