- 1 cup cornstarch
- 1 lb beef (flank or steak beef), cut into thin strips
- 1 tbsp sesame seeds
- 1 cup cooking oil, for frying
- 2 tbsp cooking oil of sauteing
- 1/2 tsp peppercorns, cracked
- 1/2 tsp red chili flakes
- 1 large white onion, chopped
- 4 cloves of garlic, chopped
- 1 tbsp grated ginger
- 1 small carrot, cut into small strips
- 1/4 cup chopped green onions

For the Sauce:
- In a wide bowl, combine cornstarch and beef strips. Toss well to coat each piece of beef with cornstarch. Set aside.
- In a small pan, heat over medium-low and toast sesame seeds. Cook until golden light brown while stirring regularly. Set aside.
- In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, vinegar, sugar and sesame oil. Mix until smooth and set aside.
- In a pan, heat 1 cup of cooking oil over high heat. Shake excess cornstarch off the beef and fry beef in batches until golden brown and crispy while stirring occasionally. Remove fried beef and place in a wire rack or a plate lined with paper towels. Set aside.
- Using a wok, heat over medium heat and add 2 tbsp cooking oil. Add cracked peppercorns and chili flakes, and do a quick stir. Add onion, garlic, ginger and saute until aromatic for about a minute or two. Add carrots and cook for about a minute or until carrots are tender. Add green onions and stir.
- Pour-in sauce mixture and water. Stir to combine and simmer until sauce is slightly thicker for about 3 minutes. Add fried beef to the wok and toss to coat beef with the sauce. Add toasted sesame seeds and toss. Garnish with more green onions and serve over rice. Enjoy!
