Beef in Tomato sauce

1 kg Fresh tender Shoulder of Beef
2 tbp of Cornflour
1 tbp of white sugar
soya sauce

vegetable oil for deep frying

5 big juicy Tomatoes (quartered)
1 Onion (chopped)
1 Garlic (optional)

1. Slice diagonally against the grain the shoulder into thin slices
2. Add soya sauce, mix.
3. Add sugar and mix.

4. Heat the oil, whilst waiting, add the cornflour and mix well.

5. Test the oil is hot, it should sizzle when you immerse a small peice of beef to
test temperature.

6. I insert the beef strips singulary with chopsticks you can do this with your
hands or a fork. The reason being, if you put all of the beef in the oil, it
will fry into a "clump"

7. Fry for a few seconds, the beef should only be semi-cooked.
8. Set the semi-cooked beef aside. Drain most of the oil, leave 1 tbp in the wok.

9. Add chopped onions and garlic, brown, then add the tomatoes and a little water if
necessary (Depends how juicy the tomatoes are.) Cook till soft.

10. When boiling add the meat strips and stir till thicken.
11. Serve with hot white rice.
12. Garnish with green leaves ie. chopped spring onions, chopped cilantro, or
