of pancake and my analogy of life. easy to make and pleasant to indulge. as long as you got the right ingredients. the toppings can be irritatingly sweet, seriously salty or even spicy. tho better eaten hot, straight from the pan, it can also be frozen. when the time comes, steam it and indulge. the best part is, it can even be eaten on its own..

Beef Chop Suey - Ummi's Style
Hari ni cuba resepi Beef Chop Suey from the book Easy Stir-Fry, published by Parragon Books and printed in Indonesia (ha ha semua nak bagitau). This is the first recipe from the book, which I had bought wayyy back in August 2009. Better late than never huh?
Anyway, the original recipe has lotsa ingredients (which I failed to find in Carrefour BTHO) and some are not consumable by muslims like me. So, kenalah adjust here and there and sudahnya Beef Chop Suey, Ummi's style.
Cumanya, I always use my heartfeeling and gerak hati when measuring ingredients for my cooking so that's why takde unit measurement ya. Sorry, kena agak-agak je lah kalau nak try out.
3. Sesame oil
4. Light soy sauce aka kicap cair
1. Beef - cut into small, thin strips
2. Onion - 1 whole bulb. Hiris.
3. Oyster sauce
4. Sweet pea - cut into half
- Marinate beef in marinating ingredients for 2 hours (at least). Keep refrigerate.
- Add some cooking oil and stir fry beef on high heat, making sure to constantly stir so tak hangit.
- Once the beef juice dried up and the meat still 'moist', transfer into a plate. - Clean your pan/wok and put in some oil.
- Fry onion until it becomes translucent and aromatic.
- Add in sweet pea and if it's necessary add up some water (I did cause the peas I bought agak tua dan keras).
- Add in some oyster sauce and let it simmer it bit.
- Add in the beef and fry for another minute or so. - Serve hot.
* The original recipe require vegetables under the name - bamboo shoot, water chestnut, broccoli, mushroom and snow peas. I just used sweet peas. I am allergic to broccoli, it gives me flatulence.
