1/2lb.Beef sliced into 2” julienne;
2cupsfresh Daikoncut into 2” julienne;
2Tbsp.Chili PasteI used Sambal Oelek;
Mix the beef with one tablespoon of the sugar, the soy sauce and the sesame oil, and let it marinate for an hour or so.
Cut the scallion greens into 2” sections and chop the white parts coarsely, keeping the two separate.
Mix the remaining sugar, chili, vinegar, and the rice wine together in a small bowl and set aside.
Bring 3 tablespoons of oil to just below the smoking point over a high heat and quickly fry the beef until just browned. Remove the beef to a bowl for now.
Add the ginger, garlic, and the white part of the scallion to the oil and saute briefly until their aroma rises, then add the green scallion pieces along with the daikon and stir-fry until the daikon is softened and slightly translucent.
Finally, add back the beef and the mixed sauce ingredients and saute for a minute or so longer until the sauce has reduced slightly and everything is piping hot.
