Method

 
Heat the oil in a wok or a large pan on high heat. Fry the beef strips quickly in two to three batches until golden brown on all sides (if you put too many pieces in the pan in one go, the meat will steam and not fry).

Remove all the meat from the pan and set aside.Fry the garlic, chilli, ginger, cashew nuts, tomato sauce, soya sauce and add 100ml water. Heat till boiling point then lower to a simmer for about 2 minutes before adding the beef strips. Heat all the way through and serve with fried rice.

To make fried rice
:
Fry a chopped onion in a bit of heated oil in a wok. Add a handful of frozen peas, followed by cooked rice. Make a hollow in the centre and pour in two beaten eggs. Stir-fry the eggs until cooked then stir through the rice.

Stir some soya sauce and sesame seeds through the rice and season to taste. Garnish with fresh coriander and serve with beef stir-fry.

Wine suggestion:

The strong Asian flavours work with something lighter such as a fruity rosé, or even beer.

Tip of the day

 
Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
