Quick and Easy Crispy Chili Beef

My Quick and Easy Crispy Chili Beef is a recipe you can’t mess up. I know this recipe is very basic but it’s aligned with my motto: to provide busy professionals and families quick and easy recipe ideas. For this crispy chili beef dish, I added some ketchup, honey and soy sauce. I’ve tried this recipe with orange juice and soy sauce but it left a strange taste in my mouth.  Serve this dish with rice or noodles.

A Few Tips On Making that Crispy Chili Beef Extra Delicious

  1. To marinate the beef, you must add cornstarch. Why? It prevents overcooking when exposed to the high heat of the frying pan and helps bind the sauces together.
  2. Don’t overcook the beef. When exposed to high heat, the beef can easily turn hard and rubbery. You want to fry the beef 2-3 minutes so it’s nice and crispy.
  3. You don’t have to add the chilis. I like all my dishes spicy so I always add chilis to my dishes.
