This method of cooking crispy beef is one to add to your Asian culinary repertoire. The sauce recipe works well as a glaze for beef or chicken. Serve with a fresh salad – as detailed below – or with fried rice.

In a bowl, mix together the steak, cornflour and soy sauce until completely combined.
Add 1 inch of oil to a high sided frying pan and place over a medium high heat.
Once the oil is hot, add a piece of beef, if it produces a steady stream of bubbles it should be hot enough. Fry the remaining beef in batches, being sure not to over crowd the pan. Transfer the beef to a plate lined with kitchen paper.
Place all the ingredients for the sauce into a saucepan and bring to a steady simmer over a medium high heat.
Place the beef in a mixing bowl and add the sauce (hold back a little to dress the salad) and sesame seeds. Toss to coat completely.
Arrange the baby gem, carrot and cucumber on a serving platter. Top with the crispy beef and garnish with herbs, chilli and spring onions.
Serve while still warm.
