Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes



1 lb lamb strips
1 tbsp Chinese rice wine or dry sherry
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tsp toasted sesame oil
1 tbsp vegetable oil
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
6 spring onions or scallions, cut lengthways into thin strips
1 tsp fresh root ginger, peeled and finely chopped
1 tsp corn flour, blended with 2 tsp water



Place the lamb in a bowl and stir in the rice wine, soy sauce and sesame oil. Leave to marinate for 20 minutes.

Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan. When it is very hot, drain the meat from the marinade, reserving it. Stir-fry the lamb for 2-3 minutes until browned then add the spring onion, garlic and ginger. Stir-fry for a further 3-4 minutes, then add the reserved marinade and corn flour and cook for 1 minute, stirring to combine everything together and thicken the sauce.

Serve immediately with steamed rice or noodles or delicious steamed pak choi.
