Beef in Barbeque Sauce
PREP TIME: 30 minutes


Western cooks may consider Oriental cooking beyond their reach. This simple Beef in Barbecue Sauce recipe will allow the novice to create the unique flavor of Chinese food in a Wok or skillet right in your home kitchen, and best of all, the ingredients may be found in the specialty food section of any large supermarket or Oriental store.


  • ½ lb. beef sirloin, thinly sliced
  • 4 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 cups pea pods
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 ½ tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 ½ tablespoon barbecue (Sa Tsa) sauce
  • ½ tablespoon sugar
  • ½ tablespoon soy sauce (cooking wine)

Blend 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil, ½ tablespoon of soy sauce and 1 tablespoon cornstarch with sliced beef to prevent meat from sticking during frying. In a wok or large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Briefly stir-fry pea pods and water; remove from wok or skillet and keep warm. To the hot wok, add 2 additional tablespoon vegetable oil. Add beef and stir-fry to desired tenderness. Drain the oil. Add mixture of soy sauce, barbecue sauce and sugar; stir and mix well. Place over fried pea pods and serve.
