  1. Partially freeze the roast for easier slicing. Slice the roast into 3x1/2 inch strips, and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine well the soy sauce, sherry, sesame oil, cornstarch, brown sugar, crushed red pepper and whole chile peppers. Place beef in the mixture and coat well. Cover and refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large skillet or wok over medium high heat. Place green onions in the hot oil. Cover, reduce heat to low and cook 6 minutes, or until tender. Remove green onions and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet or wok, heat remaining 1/4 cup of oil over medium high heat. Add beef mixture and saute for 5 minutes, or until the beef is thoroughly cooked. Return green onions to the pan and saute for 30 seconds more, or until heated through.

My roommate and I really enjoy this recipe and it is part of our regular rotation. I made a few changes based upon previous reviews: Used only 3 bunches of green onions instead of 4. Added a medium yellow onion cut into wedges. Added 4 cloves of minced garlic and approximately 1" of fresh grated ginger root to the marinade. Used 2 tablespoon of Aleppo pepper instead of the crushed red pepper and whole dried red chile peppers. I found that the Aleppo adds a nice bite to the dish without being too hot (I'm a whimp when it comes to hot food). I did not think the soy sauce was too overpowering and there was plenty of salt. With the above changes it makes this dish great! Good luck! Update: You may substitute vanilla extract for the sherry. I tried this and it tasted the same.



This recipe was ok, but like others had written, it still needed something. I decided to try some garlic and ginger, I sauteed them in a separate pan and added them in toward the end. Fabulous! I cooked it for the family I'm a chef for and they raved!



This is IT! This is what I've been looking for! I disagree with the two previous posts- this is "eat it 2 times a week, yummy!" Doubling the sauce is not a bad idea if you like more sauce. I just kept it covered while cooking so the sauce didn't cook down. I added some sweet onions along with the green onions- just me preference. This is my new favorite recipe.
