Stir-fried Black Pepper Beef

My adaptation of a popular stir-fried dish is extremely simple to make. What makes the recipe so versatile is that any fresh vegetable can be used.



  • 1.

    Marinate beef slices with black pepper, light soy sauce, cornflour, egg white and sesame oil.

  • 2.

    Set aside for at least ½ hour in the fridge.

  • 3.

    Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a wok or frying pan over a high flame.

  • 4.

    Sear the beef for 1 to 2 minutes on both sides.

  • 5.

    Remove and set aside by tenting it with foil.

  • 6.

    In the remaining oil (add more if needed), stir fry the garlic, sliced fennel and freshly crushed black pepper over a medium heat for 5 minutes.

  • 7.

    Add capsicum, fish sauce and kicap manis.

  • 8.

    Fry for 2 minutes.

  • 9.

    Add beef, stir till well mixed.

  • 10.

    Serve with rice.


This stir-fried dish can be served with udon noodles or plain fried rice noodle (kway teoh).
