Beef with Spinach
PREP TIME: 30 minutes


Western cooks may consider Oriental cooking beyond their reach. This simple Beef with Spinach 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. of beef sirloin, thinly sliced
  • ½ tablespoon soy sauce (cooking wine)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 4 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/3 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • ½ lb. spinach
  • 6 sections green onion (1 inch long)
  • 1 tablespoon shredded ginger

Blend 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil, soy sauce and cornstarch with sliced beef to prevent the meat from sticking together during frying. In a wok or large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Briefly stir-fry spinach, salt and water; remove and place in bowl and keep warm. To hot wok, add 2 additional tablespoons vegetable oil. Stir-fry green onions and ginger, add beef and stir-fry to desired tenderness. Add spinach to wok. Stir constantly to mix well.
