Szechuan Beef

You will need:

  • beef steak500g of beef steak
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • minced garlic3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • minced ginger1 tablespoon of fresh ginger, minced
  • sliced red bell pepper1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • sliced green onions2 green onions, sliced
  • crushed Szechuan peppercorns1 tablespoon of Szechuan peppercorns, crushed
  • soy sauce1/4 cup of soy sauce
  • cornstarch1 tablespoon of cornstarch
  • water1/2 cup of water


  1. First, slice the beef into thin strips. This allows the beef to cook quickly and evenly in the wok.
  2. Next, heat the vegetable oil in the wok over medium-high heat. The wok's high heat is essential for achieving the characteristic sear of stir-fry dishes.
  3. Once the oil is hot, add the minced garlic and ginger to the wok. Stir-fry these for about 1 minute until they become fragrant. This helps to infuse the oil with flavor.
  4. Now, add the beef to the wok. Stir-fry the beef until it is browned on all sides. Be sure to keep the beef moving in the wok to prevent it from burning.
  5. Next, add the sliced bell pepper, green onions, and crushed Szechuan peppercorns to the wok. Stir-fry these with the beef for about 2 minutes. The peppercorns will give the dish its distinctive Szechuan flavor.
  6. While the beef and vegetables are cooking, mix the soy sauce, cornstarch, and water together in a small bowl. This will create a sauce for the stir-fry.
  7. Pour the sauce into the wok and stir until the beef and vegetables are evenly coated. The cornstarch in the sauce will help it to thicken and cling to the ingredients.
  8. Continue to cook the stir-fry for another 2-3 minutes until the sauce has thickened. This will ensure that the flavors are well combined and the ingredients are cooked to perfection.
