Sweet and Sour Beef

Made this sweet & sour beef for my dearest hubby he loved it to the core .It tasted  really great .We relished it with garlic noodles .You can make this with mutton too..The recipe is quite simple so do give it a try.
Beef Steak 1/2 kg
1 tbsp ginger  garlic paste
1 tsp vinegar
1tsp black pepper crushed
salt to taste.

2 capsicum ( I used 1 green 1 red)
1 cup chopped spring onion both  green
spring onion
2-3 green chillies slit
2 tbsp ketchup
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp cornflour mixed in 1/2 cup water
oil 2 tbsp + for frying the beef

 Cut the beef into long thin strips Wash it well & drain excess water.

Marinate the beef with salt,ginger-garlic paste,pepper ,vinegar & keep aside for 30min
Boil the marinated beef with  1 cup water  in a pressure cooker for 15 min.

Release the pressure open the lid  remove the beef (keep the remaining water for the gravy)

Heat enough oil to fry the beef ,fry the beef till brown & crisp.

Use the remaining oil for the gravy .

In the oil  add slitted chillies,spring onions,capsicum & fry for 5 min .

Then mix in the sauces ,ketchup & the fried beef and saute till the beef is coated with sauces.

Mix in the spring onion greens.

Now add the water which was reserved after cooking the beef.

Then lastly add the cornflour mixed in water.

Cook till the gravy thickens ,switch off the flame .

Serve hot with rice/noodles it even tastes good with bread.
