black pepper beef

(Sorry, it's a bit blurry - I need to work on my photo-taking skill.)
I am back! After two long months break, I am ready to experiment and post more recipes! I will start with a simple dish. This dish goes perfectly with hot rice.  The original recipe came from  It is one of my favorite to-go website for awesome recipes!


Beef - 500g (thin sliced)
Onion - 1 (medium - cubed)
Freshly ground pepper - 1~2 tsp (depends on your taste)
Garlic salt - dash (to taste) 
Green onion - 3 stalks (chopped)

[Beef Marinade]

Garlic - 2 cloves (minced)
Ginger - 1 inch cube (minced) 
Salt - 1 tsp
Soy sauce - 1 tsp
Dark soy sauce - 1 tsp
Oyster sauce - 2tsp
Worcestershire sauce - 2 tsp
Cooking rice wine [optional] - 1 tsp
Sesame oil - 1 tsp
Sugar - 1 and half tsp
Cornstarch - 1 tsp


  1. Cut beef into thin slices.
  2. Mince garlic and ginger (or use blender for faster process). 
  3. In a Ziplock bag or glass bowl, marinade beef for at least 30 minutes (You can marinade overnight, too)
  4. Cut onion into 1 inch cubes.


  1. Heat the wok with 1 TBS of vegetable oil.
  2. Fry onion until fragrant (about 4-5 minutes). 
  3. Add in marinaded beef to onion. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes. Add freshly ground pepper.
  4. Add in green onion and adjust taste with salt (and more pepper if you want.) 


  1. Serve with hot rice. Mmm... yummy! 


  • For stir-fry, choose beef cuts that are not too lean. If it's too lean, it tends to be tougher. But if you only have lean meat, then massage the beef as you marinade and marinade longer.
