Schezuan Style Shredded Marinaded Beef

2-1/2 or 3 lbs fillet steak (very thinly sliced)*
2-3 cloves of garlic, crushed
3 oz. soy sauce
1/2 tspn hot pepper flakes
3 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp dry sherry
A couple of teaspoons of hoisin sauce (optional)

In bowl, mix garlic, soy sauce, hot pepper flakes, olive oil and dry sherry to make marinade for steak. Marinade steak at least 4 hours.

Tips and hints
*Freezing this steak slightly will make it easier to make thin slices.
*Put your meat in marinade before you leave for work, it will be wonderfully tender, flavorful and ready to cook when you return home. Turn once before you leave the house in the morning.
*Hoisin sauce is a 'sweetish' sauce and glaze
*If you have to buy rice, buy short grain rice. It is cooked the same way long grain is. It is somewhat sticky and the grains stay together. This is the rice most used in Chinese cooking.

Meal preparation

The steak:
Stir fry steak in a hot wok or large hot skillet. Heat either utensil to highest degree but not smoking. Quickly toss beef in and stir until desired doneness. Add hoisin sauce to add additional flavor and a shiny glaze to your cooked steak. Toss before serving.

The Veggies:
Steam the the shreddedcarrots and whole string beans in microwave or separate pots until tender,then tosss together.

The Salad:
Tear spinach and mix in 1 tablespoon soy sauce with sesame dressing or use regular Italian ready-made dressing.

After Dinner:
Serve tea or coffee with a small dish of ice cream or sorbet
You may want to serve Sherry wine as an after dinner drink.
