    Japanese Beef Curry from a food blog recipe. It's so, so good. I'm eating it right now. The secret ingredient is the grated apple.

    I left out the green beans and the shiitakes, but it still turned out good. I'm doing something wrong with the stir-fry though. I get a ton of liquid whenever I fry beef and then the meat comes out tough (like today).
    Put less beef in the wok, even if you need to do it in a few stages. Tossing the beef with a bit of cornstarch will also cut down on the liquid.

    "Wok Hay" is an expression I had never heard but it applies big time to stir fries and Cantonese food in general.

    Wok Hay

    The more I read the more I realized these foods and dishes really need technique. And authentic ingredients.

    This blog has great recipes, technique and ingredient help and they know what wok hay is.

    Come to think of it, I did pack the 12 inch skillet with the beef and cook it all in one batch. I did the same today with the short rib pieces for the curry. The curry itself is delicious but the meat is tough.

    Sounds delicious!
    Let thought and reasoning be your guide, it certainly is mine!

    Always forward, never back!

    I'm an idiot, but I'm willing to learn. So that separates me from the idiot who isn't.

    Baking soda is another tenderizing choice (add a pinch to the marinade) and I think it works very well.

    This is the best dish for this time of year. Give it a try and see if you have more success.

    Thanks. I visited that site about 2 months ago and have that recipe. I made another Mongolian beef recipe last month that didn't quite match my expectations but was still good.
